The staff at the Mullingar Park Hotel are looking forward to their 2013 Wedding Showcase (on Sunday February 10) even more than in previous years thanks to the extra interest generated by an appearance on Don't Tell the Bride.
There was huge excitement at the hotel when RTÉ approached management about working with it on the programme, which was broadcast on January 10 and is available on the RTÉ Player, and further excitement when the groom, Patrick Dunne from Rhode, County Offaly, along with his two groomsman Paddy and Rob, started negotiation with the hotel's reservations manager, Deirdre Bracken, to seal the wedding package deal of his fiancée's dreams.
Patrick is a Leinster schools coach and a member of Tullamore Rugby Club and his bride, Cleo McCusker, is a legal secretary.
The Mullingar Park Hotel is delighted with the positive feedback and the great exposure, and has been undated with enquiries about the Wedding Showcase on February 10 (2-6pm), which will feature a bridal fashion show, a comprehensive exhibition of wedding services and special incentives for couples who book their weddings on the day.
Don't Tell the Bride attracts some 280,000 viewers and is one of the top 10 shows on RTÉ Player.

The programme is available online until the end of January:
