Facebook2Tweet0Pin0By Christe Smith I don’t know about you but I love the summer time here in Thurston County. So many  summer cook outs with friends & family, plus all the fairs that Thurston county has to offer and not to mention all the AMAZING food! I know for myself this is one of the hardest times of the year to stay on a clean/healthy eating lifestyle. The other thing that I love about cook outs  and Thurston county fairs, are all the fun physical activities. For example, this past 4th of July, I had the pleasure to be invited to our friends, that live on Thurston counties Long Lake. Since they live on Long Lake, I got to paddle boat out to middle of the lake to watch the fireworks. Before that we danced to great music and we even jumped on the trampoline like kids! So with Thurston counties Lake Fair approaching think of how you can be active….like go into the bounce house with your kids or ride your bike to the fair. Just remember that children learn by our examples…so take advantage of all the physical activities that Thurston county Lake Fair has to offer! So while you are chatting & laughing away at all these Thurston county events this summer, remember the 80 /20 rule. The rule is that, 80% of the time you eat and drink super clean/healthy plus exercise (with your favorite  Rock Bottom trainer :)) so that when the fair or cook out rolls around, you can step out of the clean/healthy eat box a little…and I do mean a LITTLE!  Please remember that when you do step out of the box,  it can be very…very hard to step back in. What I like to do is always bring a side dish that I know is clean to the cook out.  That way I can always eat clean/healthy at the event and not feel like I am missing out or be as tempted to reach for one of those same old cookout menu items that everyone brings. I also bring my own protein ( turkey burger, chicken dog, fish) to grill, because we all know what is in that commercially processed hamburger and hot dog..YUCK!!!!  While preparing for that day or evening at the  fair,  pack clean/healthy snacks and stay way from all the fried foods. Better yet look for grilled items that the vendors offer.last_img read more

Stay with Frankenstorm

first_imgThe Pick-9 had no takers at Caymanas Park on Wednesday and the carryover to tomorrow’s meet stands at $1.3 million. Both Super-6s were caught and start anew with the guaranteed minimum of $750,000. The Pick-9 will be conducted from race three to 11, the first Super-6 from race one to six, the late Super-6 from race six to 11. We look at the first Super-6 which commences with a competitive looking $180,000 claiming race over 1000 metres round, which should see the down in class horses FRANKENSTORM (Rayan Wilson up), LIGHT BRIGADE (Robert Halledeen) and DAGGA DAGGA LINKS (Andre Martin) the ones fighting out the finish in an eight-strong field. All three are better than this level of racing and although not always 100 per cent sound, LIGHT BRIGADE, in particular, could reply with a long overdue win with title-chasing Halledeen riding for that astute trainer Lawrence Freemantle and high profile owner Carlton Watson.  Preference, however, is for FRANKENSTORM, who won easily over 1100 metres in the fairly good time of 1:08.2 on August 26. The five-year-old son of Outrigger was claimed from trainer Neive Graham by Dennis l Lee out of that race and should bring fitness into play and win from LIGHT BRIGADE, now dropping down two classes with some indifferent form. Having finished second in her last two races, WHO’S BOSSY (Kuri Powell up) should come into her own and win the second race over 1500 metres for maiden four-year-olds and up. Owned and trained by Jamaica’s lone female conditioner Margaret Parchment, WHO’S BOSSY caught the eye in recent weeks when finishing second to ROYAL GIRL and DARLIN in separate races over middle distances and should go one better at the expense of WESTERN FAITH and NO PAIN NO GAIN in a field of seven. MISS DOROTHY, who just failed to catch ABOVE THE RADAR over 1820 metres recently, looks tempting at the weights with only 52.0kg in the third race over 1800 metres and her final rattle will now prove hard to withstand in a field of eight. Sadiki Blake, who won aboard her over a mile on August 6, has stuck with the ride and despite the good claims of bold front runner GRAN CORAZON and GEORHIAMYLOVE, the five-year-old mare is given the edge. Briefly, recent winner MARISHA STAR (Wesley Henry up), down in class EDISON (Omar Walker aboard) and CLEARLY OURS (O’Brien White) should provide the answers for the last three races in the first Super-6. Their respective dangers are GENUINE FRIEND, PRINCE ANDREW and AQUILO.

Tough times ahead

first_imgDivision I-AA was beefed up by CIF in the off-season to feature most of the Southland’s top girls basketball programs. Amat being only a No. 5 seed should tell fans something about what a difficult task the Valley’s top team faces. “It is way different,” Amat coach Richard Wiard said. “Every game is going to be competitive.” Covina (25-1) was made the No. 7 seed in Division III-AA and awarded with a home game on Saturday against El Segundo. Covina was untouched in the Valle Vista League this season and hasn’t lost since Dec. 9. (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2233 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Amat opens at home on Saturday night against El Modena. If the Lancers advance, they’ll play either Royal or Orange Lutheran. After that, they might play Lynwood. Teams like nationally-ranked Long Beach Poly, Troy or Brea Olinda then could be coming down the road. “In terms of seeding, it’s seeded just the way it’s been in the polls,” Wiard said. “We were the No. 5 seed in the polls and we were the No. 5 seed when it came out. The teams in front of us are all very good.” The good news for Amat fans is their team enters the postseason playing its best basketball. Amat has won 14 consecutive games. Diamond Ranch (24-1) also changed divisions this season after winning Division III-AA last season. The Panthers were given the No. 2 seed in Division II-AA. Diamond Ranch hosts San Marino on Saturday night and appears headed for another deep run. The Panthers swept the Miramonte League this past season. center_img It won’t be the traditional cake walk for the Bishop Amat High School girls basketball team when the CIF-Southern Section Division I-AA playoffs begin this week. The Lancers (21-4), who have won three consecutive CIF-Southern Section championships, got their usual first- round home game when playoff pairings were announced on Sunday. But everything else about Amat’s postseason will be markedly different. last_img read more

Nissan field tightens up

first_img“This definitely shines a ray of hope on a lot of guys’ eyes, as well as (Mickelson) was playing,” said Jim Furyk, tied for sixth, four shots back. Mickelson and Harrington know things could’ve been much different, that today’s final round could have resembled a match-play competition. But if either wins, it will be a moot point. “It would’ve been nice to get a few birdies and take a few guys out, but we let the field back in,” Harrington said. It didn’t look like it would be that way at the start, as Mickelson picked up where he left off, sinking birdies on the first two holes to take a two-shot lead over Harrington. On the second hole, he hit a superb approach shot that curled around trees and landed within four feet of the hole, leading to an easy putt. But Mickelson didn’t birdie again until the 10th hole. He had several errant drives and iron shots that led to three consecutive bogeys on Nos. 11, 12 and 13. “I was tied for the lead yesterday. I’ve got a one-shot lead today. So, it’s getting better,” Mickelson said. “It wasn’t the day I wanted, but it’s getting better.” Mickelson’s most glaring error was on the par-3 16th hole, where he hit his tee shot right and over the green, then hit a wedge over the hole on the other side, about 40 feet by the cup. He then made a two-foot bogey putt. “Awful swing on 16,” he said. “I didn’t even try to make par there.” Mickelson fell into a tie for the lead after that gaffe but birdied the par-5 17th hole. He was on in two and two-putted from 40 feet. “I had a great day striking it,” Mickelson said. “I felt like this was going to be a good day. Somewhere along the line, iron shots just weren’t quite coming off. I missed a couple of fairways early on with 3-woods, and I was 4 under through 11, but the longest putt I had made was three or four feet. I didn’t make anything outside of that. And so I’ve got to get a little bit hotter with the putter. I’ve got to give myself more changes. I just kind of hung in there.” Harrington was scrambling as well. He was in the gulley on the eighth and hit a tremendous shot to within seven feet and the ball stayed on the edge of the cup. He tapped in for par. This is the first time Harrington has played the tournament and the first for Mickelson in five years. Harrington played Riviera once in December, and his inexperience with the course showed on the sixth hole, where he was well off the green. “I chipped it well by the hole and missed the putt,” Harrington said. “Seemingly, I could have chipped it up the side of the green and it would have come back down. I didn’t happen to notice that. My playing partner (Mickelson) told me that as I was going up the next hole.” Mickelson, who won the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am last week, appears to be the golfer to beat today. But Mickelson and Harrington are anything but guarantees to win the tournament. “There were a lot of low scores,” Mickelson said. “If Padraig and I had both shot low scores, we probably could’ve pulled away a little bit. Instead, it will be a shootout (today) with a lot of guys.” (818) 713-3615 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Phil Mickelson and Padraig Harrington had an opportunity to distance themselves from the field on Saturday, but that didn’t happen. Ten players are within five shots of one another, meaning the Nissan Open could come down to the 72nd hole, as it usually does. Mickelson and Harrington each shot their highest scores of the tournament – 69 and 70, respectively – and Mickelson has a one shot lead over Harrington at 13-under. Rich Beem, who aced the 14th hole and won a Nissan sports car, is two shots back at 11 under. center_img • Photo Gallery: Nissan Open PACIFIC PALISADES – The PGA Tour is a one-man show, but without Tiger Woods, the Nissan Open became a two-man show. last_img read more

first_imgDONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUE REPORTSOld Orchard Inn Saturday Division OneFintown Harps AFC 2 Mulroy Celtic 1 In great playing conditions at Pairc Acla in Fintown both teams put in a lot of effort in the first half. John Molloy and Stephen Boyle came very close to putting the home side in front. Mulroy created some quality scoring opportunities but both teams were unable to get a score in the first half of this competitive game. The start of the second half was much the same with Aaron Thompson coming close on the 10th minute from a through ball by Paddy McFadden. Stephen Molloy slammed the top left hand corner of the posts from 25 yards out on the 14th minute. Then in the 18th minute Eoin Wade put his name on the scoreboard, converting a great cross by Stephen Molloy to put the Harps in front. In the 28th minute Fintown furthered their lead when Brian Delaney’s shot went into the top right hand corner of the net. Just when Fintown thought it was all going their way Mulroy edged one back when Mark Griffin scored a penalty. Mulroy pushed hard in the last minutes of the game trying to get an equaliser but it wasn’t to be. Team performances by both teams. Referee: John Mc ConigleyGweedore Celtic Reserves 2 Erne Wanderers 3This game played at the Screaban in a bitterly cold afternoon. The visitors opened the scoring on twelve minutes when Barry Mulligan scored from the edge of the area. The same player made it two-nil on twenty minutes. The home side scored their opening goal on twenty three minutes when John Walsh took the ball from his own half and crossed into the box where Shaun Doherty scored from three yards. Erne Wanders made it three one on thirty minutes when Mickey Ward beat the off side trap In the second half Gweedore played the better football and created numerous chances and got their reward on fifty five minutes when Shamack put a ball through to Ciaran McGinley who scored from an acute angle. Gweedore then when looking for the equalizer through Joe Bonner and Garth Kerrigan but were denied by a solid defence from Erne Wanders.Referee: Barry HunterBest for Gweedore John Walsh, Paul Duggan and Willie McBrideTeam performance by Erne WandersGlencar Inn Saturday Division TwoDeele Harps 4 Milford United Reserves 0 Deele continued their 100% league record with their eighth straight league victory against Milford at The Athletic Grounds. Deele were made to work hard for the victory as Milford really put it up to the home side in the first half. Despite Deele’s slow start to the game, Conor Catterson scored the opener with a fierce strike after 25 minutes. Milford responded well and but for Christy Roulstone in the Deele goals could easily have scored on two occasions. The young netminder first tipped a Milford free onto the bar before a superb double save in the 40th minute which maintained Deele’s advantage. The league leaders then upped their game and extended their lead on the stroke of half time when Aidy Gallagher cut in from the left and finished well following good running from Shane Gallagher. The second half was again a tight battle with Christy Roulstone being called into action on a couple of occasions. While Milford were pushing hard Deele were creating chances of their own and Gavin Gallagher’s work rate paid off when he started a move in midfield which the Tober man finished himself after Aidy Gallagher’s pass. Deele added the fourth goal in the 80th minute when centre back Dermot Shiels scored for the second week running, a trademark header from Gary Wilson-Mc Girr’s corner. Best for Deele was Christy Roulstone who ensured another clean sheet. A team performance from Milford United. Referee: Barry HunterDonegal Town Reserves 5 Downtown United 0Donegal solidified their place in second position with a convincing performance, which resulted in the end in a comfortable victory. Despite Downtown starting the better, once David Bustard put the home side in front on twenty minutes, the result was never in doubt. Kevin Devaney played a pinpoint through ball which Bustard controlled well and chipped the advancing keeper. Ridha Abdullah made it 2-0 shortly after, working the space well to head in at the front post from a corner. JP Byrne made it three just before half time when he headed home at the back post from a well struck Sean Boyle corner. With the home side three up at half time, the first goal in the second half was always going to be crucial. Despite some good pressure early on from Downtown, Stephen Curneen was on hand to tap the ball home after Ciaran O’Reilly’s shot came back off the keeper. The victory was sealed when David Bustard got his head to an O’Reilly cross after good work out wide from Gary Ward. A rather one sided contest although played in an honest spirit by both teams. JP Byrne and Bustard were best for Donegal. Team performance from the visitors.Gweedore United Reserves 2 Cranford United Reserves 3 This game played at Carrickboyle under the floodlights on Friday night saw an entertaining encounter with Cranford coming out on top at the end. The game started with the home side having most of the possession and two minutes in Ciaran Gillespie scored into the top corner of Brian Hegarty’s net from 20 yards. As the match progressed both sides played good football with chances at both ends. In the 44th minute Cranford equalised when a good cross from Conor Shields was tapped home from close range by Chris Molloy to make it 1-1 at half time. In the second half the visitors got off to the best possible start when John Mc Bride drove past Johnny Gallagher into the bottom corner from 18 yards to make it 1-2 in the 46th minute. In the 77th minute the Carrickboyle men got back on level terms when good work by Aodh O’ Donnell and Sean Paul Mc Mahon was well finished off by Stephen O’ Donnell after the ball was parried by Hegarty in the Cranford net. Both sides again went in search of the winner with good open play. United had numerous chances, however it was Cranford who scored the 3rd and final goal in the 84th minute when Patrick Mc Gruddy beat the off side trap, rounding Johnny Gallagher and tapping in to ensure a good three points for Cranford. Aodh O’ Donnell and Hugh Martin Curran played well for United with James Lee excelling for Cranford.Referee: Paul DohertyBrian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionGweedore Celtic 0 Castlefin Celtic 0It was honours even at An Screaban on a cold day but a good day for football. Gweedore short a number of their regulars did well to hold on for a draw. The first half was a fairly even affair with Castlefin creating a few chances. On five minutes the ball was headed over in front of the home goal, another shot was blasted over the bar when it seemed easier to score. It was more even in the second half. A break from half way allowed Fionan Diver through but Keeper Mc Menamin did well to block the shot. Five minutes later Fionan’s shot was tipped against the bar and Ownie Mc Garvey scooped the rebound over. In the last five minutes Gweedore had a lucky escape with a scramble in the goalmouth but eventually the ball was cleared.Best for Gweedore : Fionan DiverFor Castlefin Keeper Simon Mc Menamin was outstandingReferee: Kevin LogueLagan Harps A v A Rathmullan CelticNo Report, Abandoned at half time due to poor visibilityWatson Hire Division OneBallybofey United P v P Arranmore UnitedPostponed due to fog prior to kick-offCurragh Athletic 10 Raphoe Town 2Curragh Athletic completely over ran a Raphoe Town outfit to record an emphatic ten goals to two victory in Killygordon. Fresh from their previous somewhat disappointing draw with Ballybofey United the previous week, Curragh made no mistake this time out with Ryan Carlin (8, 25, 44) and Dan O Brien (11, 30, 56) grabbing themselves hat-tricks in the process. Shane Barclay also managed to get in on the scoring act with a brace, his first on fifty five and a second on seventy four minutes. Other scorers for Curragh were Michael and Patrick Oliver on thirty seven and eighty five minutes respectively. Reece Laird managed to score twice for the away side making the score seven goals to one on fifty minutes and also by rounded off the scoring on eighty six minutes. This was a very strong performance from the Curragh Athletic team who turned in a perfect team effort with Carlin and O Brien outstanding. Raphoe had Laird showing some good skills for them. Referee: Paddy Duffy.CT Ball Division TwoDrumbar United 2 Letterbarrow Celtic 0This was a closely contested derby with Drumbar coming out on top in the end. The first half was a ding dong affair with both sides creating half chances. The second half saw the visitors get more into the game but they were lacking in the final third. Drumbar’s frustration continued in front of goal with a few more near misses until the ball fell to Ray Ballagon who tucked it into the bottom corner with 10 minutes left. He then scored again with just 2 minutes left to seal the home side’s victory. Barry Griffin and Dale Duncan were best for the visitors.Dunlewy Celtic 3 Kerrykeel ’71 F.C. 2With only three games in the CT Ball Division, this was a top of table clash with both teams on good runs. The game wasn’t a minute old when the Kerry keel men struck. The centre was taken and a quick ball was placed into Johnny Friel who made a darting run from deep, his effort was cleared out to the right flank were Mark Friel whipped in a shot which rocketed into the top corner of the net. The home side were rocked by this and it took the side 20 minutes to settle. Dunlewy got back on level terms when James McMullen picked up a loose ball in midfield and took a pop from outside the box which nestled itself into the corner of the net. The home side took the lead going into the break when Lorcan Gallagher rose highest from a Brendan Mc Geady corner to power home a strong header.The second half was a tense affair and again it was the visitors who took the game to the home side and put the home defence under severe pressure. Johnny Friel then broke the offside trap and scored to leave the game on a knife edge. The turning point came when a Liam McMullen pass spilt the visitors defence and John Cannon got there first but was brought down by the keeper. The resulting penalty was coolly slotted home by Christy Cannon. In a tense 15 minutes the home side held strong with last ditch defending and had chances to increase their lead when they attacked on the break but in the end the home side took all three points.A strong performance from both teams at Glentornan ParkWhitestrand United 2 Convoy Arsenal 1Whitestrand built on last weeks impressive victory over Kerrykeel with a hard fought victory over Convoy . Strand took the lead in the first half with Michael Sweeney finishing superbly . The strand added to the lead when co manager Paul Lynch fired home clinically after a scramble in the penalty area . Malley should have put the game to bed before half time but a mixture of poor finishing and bad luck left the score at 2-0. Convoy performed much better after half time and pulled a goal back with 15minutes left, converting a fine free kick . Convoy should have equalised in the dying moments but Benny Friel pulled of a wonder save to see the game finish 2-1. Best for strand Lynch and Gallagher. Best for Convoy Eunan KellyUlster Junior CupBonagee United 1 Drumkill Rovers 3Nigel Lynch for the visitors came close on twelve minutes when he headed just wide from a corner kick. Darren Coyle and Kevin Doran had efforts on goal for the home team on twenty and twenty five minutes but Dwayne Rooney in the Drumkill goal was in good form and saved well. Drumkill took the lead on forty three minutes when a cross from the left was palmed away by the Bonagee keeper only for the ball to strike Drumkill’s Kevin Brennan on the knee and rebound into the net. Bonagee started the second half on top and should have levelled the game on fifty five minutes when Kevin Doran broke down the left cut inside the defender but his effort came off the post and the ball fell to Paddy Mc Laughlin just inside the box but his shot was well saved by Rooney. Shane Kelly did level the game on Sixty two minutes when he played a great one two with Darren Coyle outside the box and his shot found the bottom corner of the goal. Drumkill went ahead on seventy eight minutes when Damien Larkin broke down the right and his shot from the edge of the box beat Toner in the Bonagee goal. Drumkill got their third on eighty four minutes when Brian Mc Quaid beat the offside trap and he lobbed the ball over the keeper from twenty yards. Team efforts by both sides. Referee: Joe Mc Hugh.Milford United 3 Drumoghill F.C. 0Milford United advanced to the next round of the Ulster Junior Cup with a comprehensive victory over Drumoghill in a foggy Moyle View Park. Milford started the game at a high tempo and took the lead on 20minutes when Karol Duggan slotted home from 10 yards. Duggan had two great chances to extend the lead but his shots went narrowly wide. A good move on the left by PJ Hagan and David Curley found “Ciaran McGinley who rounded the keeper for a fine finish. Milford controlled most of the game but a hard working Drumoghill team were a constant threat and kept Milford’s back four busy the whole afternoon. Milford had many chances to finish the game off through, Ciaran McGinley, Peter Doherty, Joey Cullen, Mark Flood and Padraic Ferry but all failed to hit the net. Milford got their third when Caolan Mc Gettigan’s long ball was won by Joey Cullen who set up Peter Doherty who scored from an acute angle. Good team performance by both sides, best for Milford were Paul Shields and Paddy Peoples in the centre of defence. Referee: Vincent McLaughlin.FAI Junior CupAileach F.C. 1 Cappry Rovers 2Killylough F.C. 2 Glenea United 3Kilmacrennan Celtic 2 Keadue Rovers 5Keadue Rovers advance into the next round of the cup following a convincing win over Kilmacrennan Celtic.Although the visitors started the best, Kilmac took the lead after good work from Timmy Burke found an unmarked Ryan Shields. The young midfielder played a lovely ball behind the Keadue defence for the inrushing Eddie Doherty who coolly chipped Chris Mc Ginn, the Keadue netminder with twenty minutes played. The premier outfit looked to be in control and created numerous chances but failed to capitalise on them. Kilmac paid the price for this on the stroke of half time when a Damien Hanlon free kick from the half way line caused confusion amongst the Kilmac side and veteran Dolty Boyle made no mistake from close range.Keadue dominated the first twenty minutes of the second half and deservedly scored two goals through Damien Hanlon and Shaun Boyle. Kilmac introduced Cathal Gallagher and Gavin Gorman in an attempt to get back into the game. The change in formation did make the home side more of a threat, but Keadue stood firm and defended well. With fifteen minutes remaining Keadue broke quickly and Shaun Bonner scored from close range after good work from Dolty Boyle. Kilmac responded quickly through Eddie Doherty from a Aidan Friel cross. There was still time for another goal from Keadue when Damien Hanlon’s shot from eighteen yards reflected off a Kilmac defender and into the back of the net.Team effort from Kilmac while Shaun Bonner and Damien Hanlon were best for Keadue.TOTAL SOCCER: DONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUE COMPLETE MATCH REPORTS was last modified: November 25th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:TOTAL SOCCER: DONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUE COMPLETE MATCH REPORTSlast_img read more


first_imgDonegal Rose Tamara PayneOne week on since being crowned as the Ulster Rose, Tamara Payne speaks to DonegalDaily about her delight with getting through to the final stage of the Rose of Tralee competition.Last week at the Regional Festival in Portlaoise, Tamara from Ardara was one of just six Irish Roses to be put forward to appear at the Rose of Tralee festival in August.Tamara was interviewed by host Dáithí Ó Sé on Friday, May 30. Being onstage with the Kerryman was quite relaxing, she said. “He makes you feel very at home, very relaxed and he was so much fun.” Tamara’s talent piece is reading poetry. On Friday last, she read a poem entitled “Be Yourself”. For the August festival, she hopes to have written a poem of her own to read. Despite going on to study Law in LYIT, Tamara has a great interest in the written word. “English was my favourite subject in school and I always loved writing,” she said.The 28 Roses that are going though to the final Tralee Festival stage of the competition were announced on Sunday.To hear her name called out was great, Tamara said. “It was unbelievable. I was so shocked but I was absolutely delighted. Mum and Dad and everybody just went mad, they were so excited,” she said.Tamara and the 60 other Roses had a great experience in Portlaoise last week – seeing local attractions and meeting local people in the community. The Cuisle cancer support centre was a very touching experience, Tamara said. She also attended street parties, took part in a vintage car parade, and had lunch in the beautiful Castle Durrow.Thinking ahead to Tralee, Tamara is not sure what to expect. She said that she feels reassured to have already met Dáithí and the other Roses. “You have friends already made by the time you go down there,” she said. “I’m really looking forward to it.”Although Tamara has already started dress shopping for the big night, she hasn’t found “the one” yet.It’s an exciting time for the 19-year-old student. “I’ve met lots of different people since I was chosen as the Donegal Rose and it’s lovely because I’ve met lots of different people from different countries.”“People are starting to recognise me now.” Life as the Ulster Rose has been very different from the ordinary, she said. “It’s great fun at the same time.” In the summer months coming up to the competition, Tamara will work in the local Nesbitt Arms Hotel, Ardara. She will also continue to present her radio show on OweneaFM on Saturdays. She will, of course, be preparing for Tralee and doing lots of shopping in the meantime.The Rose of Tralee Festival will run from 15-19 August.ULSTER ROSE TAMARA: ‘PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO RECOGNISE ME NOW’ was last modified: June 6th, 2014 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalRose of TraleeTamara PayneUlsterlast_img read more
