It was very much a case of “Beautiful Bundoran” last weekend, as over 500 guests packed into the Great Northern Hotel for what has now been firmly established as the top social event on the resort’s busy calendar.
The Belle of Bundoran, which is now in its second year ,has grown from strength to strength attracting entrants from as far away as the Rosses into Fermanagh and Sligo. it is a truly great and enjoyable fundraiser for Realt na Mara CLG, the local GAA club.
In what was one of the most difficult decisions ever by the well known celebrity judges, Rio Carlin Rosanio was chosen as this year’s Belle of Bundoran, with Amara Bonner declared a close runner up and Grace Garvin in third place.
Rio, who is currently in her third year of Nursing Studies in UCD and lists photography as one of her passions in life, used the occasion to showcase some of her best work.
