The Celtic Blondes

Celtic Blondes

The Celtic Blondes are a nationally known ‘traditional Irish dance duo with a modern twist’ consisting of sisters Rose-Elizabeth Carey and Daisy Carey. Throughout twenty years of competitive and performance experience, the Celtic Blondes have achieved many awards and performed on stages around the world, some of which include the N.E.C in Birmingham, the Science Museum in South Kensington (London), the Irish Entertainment Awards, the Nathan Carter Stage at Moynalty Steam Threshing Festival, John Joe Nevin’s Olympic Homecoming Celebratory Concert and in Auditorium Orpheus - Educatorio Della Provvidenza in Turin, Italy.  The Celtic Blondes have also appeared on Irish TV (Sky Channel 191), TG4's 'An Jig Gig' and 'Feis And Blood,' and on TV3’s ‘The Apprentice’ and ‘Ireland AM,’ and they describe their greatest achievement as receiving three gold stars on Sky Television’s hit dance show “Got To Dance,” whilst reaching the judges' shortlisted selection.  The Celtic Blondes hold Honours Degrees in Irish Music and Dance from the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, University of Limerick, and their ultimate aim is to open their own Irish Dance Academy to aspiring young dancers.

“What makes our act unique is that we are both accomplished Irish Dancers, and we both have very long, natural blonde hair, which enhances the visuals of our act.  We choreograph all of our own routines to specifically tailored music tracks, and we strive for perfection in all that we do.  We are dedicated to performing, and we cannot wait to see you all at the Royal Meath Show in Trim on the 2nd of September.”

Royal County Bee Keepers Association Honey Show

IMG_3491_Cake

This years Royal County Bee Keepers Association(RCBKA) Honey Show will be held in conjunction
with the Royal Meath Show. We are hoping the new venue will encourage more people to exhibit. A
new “Best Tasting Honey” Class in any size jar has been included, judged on taste alone. So you
won’t get eliminated if there are a couple of air bubbles or a bee leg in it, it’s the taste that counts.
Other classes we are hoping attract the more novice bee keeper are the cake, biscuit and sweets
classes. For people who don’t have any honey or bees there is a Photography Class(anything bee
related including flowers) and for our young bee enthusiasts there is an art competition with a
number of age categories.
In the tent on the day there will be an Observation Hive, a Bug Motel, Posters and Displays on the
importance of the bees and all pollinators will be located in the Honey Show tent. There will be
plenty of experts in attendance to help answer anyone’s questions.
