Hunt is on for Carlingford Oyster Girl Pearl

Carlingford Oyster Festival is promising four fun filled days from Thursday 9th – Sunday 12th August 2012  with Oysters, Oysters, Oysters…!
This year the festival is re introducing the famous Oyster Pearl competition which is being sponsored by Morgan’s Fine Fish, Omeath. The well known ‘lovely girl’ competition that crowned over 22 pearls in its day and made many a mammy cry with pride, is polishing up the crown ready for  the new millennium pearl ..!

The participation criteria is slightly changed however.Bling with matching wellies is now a compulsory accessory and brownie points will be awarded to the girlie who wears a self knitted item. A box of Kleenex is also a prerequisite in order to find out the least amount it takes to discover the hidden pearl. For the vocally challenged, rest assured – if you can’t play an instrument there will be karoke machine on hand to assist. Any pearl worth her salt(water) should have a good tale to tell and the way to judges heart is still through the stomach so some nice wee baked treats is sure to warm their hearts to a lassie.A sense of humour remains essential as the competition is likely to be one to remember.So Girls Don’t Miss it- enter now!!!  

Winner will be crowned Morgan’s Fine Fish Carlingford Oyster Pearl 2012, receiving €1000 CASH AND One year’s full membership to The Four Seasons Hotel Leisure Centre, Carlingford
