A SPARKLING future lies ahead for the Rose of Tralee International Festival after the Rose of Tralee, Elysha Brennan and RTÉ presenter Dáithí Ó Sé unveiled premium Irish giftware brand Tipperary Crystal as the new lead sponsor.

The announcement at the Tipperary Crystal Showroom at Arnotts Department Store, Dublin, this morning came ahead of this year’s extended and bigger than ever Rose of Tralee International Festival from August 17-23.

Dáithí Ó Sé presented Elysha Brennan with her new Rose of Tralee sash bearing the Tipperary Crystal brand but the public will have to wait until Tuesday, August 23, to see the new tiara, created by Tipperary Crystal, which will be presented to the 2016 Rose of Tralee in the Festival Dome live on RTÉ One television.

The executive chair of the Rose of Tralee International Festival, Anthony O’Gara, said: “We are proud to run a great international festival. It is unique and it has stood the test of time. The Rose of Tralee is one of the strongest and most iconic brands that we have in Ireland. Sustaining and growing that brand requires passion, commitment, creativity plenty of hard work and a commitment to excellence. We are delighted to team-up with Tipperary Crystal who we believe will be a strong partner for the Festival going forward. When the Roses wear the exquisite jewellery pieces that Tipperary Crystal have designed for over five hours of live TV in August they will herald a new order in jewellery and giftware retail sales in the Irish market.”

The managing director of Tipperary Crystal, Robbie Scanlan, said: “Tipperary Crystal and the Rose of Tralee are two iconic Irish brands that both have a real and tangible sense of modern Ireland. Tipperary Crystal has evolved into a contemporary giftware company that reflects the Ireland of today and now has the perfect vehicle through the Rose of Tralee to showcase the Tipperary Crystal Jewellery collection. There is just such a fantastic fit between the two brands.”

Arnotts Department Store has been a partner to Tipperary Crystal over the years and this historic location was chosen as the venue to let the country know of the new partnership between Tipperary Crystal and Rose of Tralee. The commercial manager of the Rose of Tralee International Festival, Steve Cronly, said: “Sponsorship at all levels plays a key role in the ongoing success of our event. We are delighted to welcome on board all our new and returning sponsors who continue to enjoy the benefits of being associated with Ireland’s flagship festival.”

This year’s extended Rose of Tralee Festival will run for seven days from August 17-23 and tickets to all Dome and Street events are now available from www.RoseofTralee.ie.

Are you happy and where you want to be with your health, where you want to be financially or are you going through the motions each day, unsure of your purpose?

Are you supported by others when you’re struggling or only supported by others when things are going well?
Are you looking forward to the next five, 10, 20 years of your life?

If you answered “no” to any of these questions, I encourage you to look around at the people you spend your time with. Your time is your most expensive asset. Your mind is your most expensive real estate.

With whom you spend your time, and those that you permit to impact your thoughts and decisions will have a great impact on your life.

From the outside looking in, our gym culture is the most difficult health benefit for others to understand.
Now more than ever all our brains are fed is chaos, division, selfishness and negativity. We can’t have that here. Those that thrive in that environment aren’t a good fit for us, and they won’t last long here. Either they’ll leave on their own, or we’ll tell them it’s time to go.

Years ago, when I was struggling with some people decisions (personally and business); one of my mentors told me something that continues to stick with me. It’s since been something I have said to people many times;
“The people that have helped you get to where you are may not be the same people that can help you get to where you want to go.”

Ask yourself these three questions;

* Who’s in your circle?
* Who do you need to start spending less time with?
* In order to get where you want to be, what kind of people do you need to start spending more of your time with?

Now it’s time to get to work. Start spending less time with those dragging you down. Start surrounding yourself with the people that won’t condone your behaviours that aren’t consistent with your goals, support your work ethic, help you to learn from your failures and will be excited to celebrate your successes.

When you are ready, we are here to help. Book your complimentary consultation by visiting our website www.activate.ie.

70 toddlers from Currow Play School have become Ireland’s littlest fundraisers as they stepped out to raise vital funds for vulnerable children.

They took part in the Barnardos Big Toddle which this year has the theme of ’Community Helpers’.

Barnardos currently works with just under 18,000 children and families across Ireland and the funds raised will support Barnardos Early Years services.

“This year, Currow Play School turns 25 and we have been taking part in Barnardos Big Toddle since 2006, which is 18 years of toddling in aid of vulnerable children,” Catherine Fleming form Currow Play School said.
“Our toddle is a highlight for the children and the team every year. It’s fantastic to get the little ones involved in something so worthwhile at a young age, it’s always a great day of fun. Barnardos provides a huge number of services in communities across Ireland, but these can only continue with help from the public. The toddle runs throughout June so I would implore anyone with toddlers or wobblers at home to sign up for Barnardos Big Toddle supported by Pipin Pear today.”

Anyone wishing to take part can register today at www.barnardos.ie/bigtoddle.
