Miss Blue Jeans Festival ,2008 Blue Jean Country Queen

Well done to Tina Fitzgerld who represented Limerick in the Miss Blue Jeans Festival recently at Athboy, Co. Meath. Catriona O’Connor, a 29 year primary school teacher from Glamnire Macra was crowned the 2008 Blue Jean Country Queen. Celebrating its 21st festival, members of Meath Macra na Feirme (organisers of the event) were delighted with all aspects of the event. Beautiful weather, huge crowds and the massive array of events organised over the weekend was just the recipe to turn this years festival into one of the largest and successful to date. From Friday night, where RTE’s Ear to the Ground presenter Darragh McCullough interviewed the queens on stage up to Monday afternoon as live music was still pumping out through the town, there was a great buzz in the town of Athboy, the home of the festival. David Beggy, representing Guinness, had great praise for the organisers who had ensured there was something for all the family at the weekend. Now regarded as one of the top festivals in the North East, the committee are looking forward to an even bigger and better one for 2009.
