Ballinamore native Declan Prior will represent County Leitrim in the tenth annual Mr Personality Festival which takes place at the Springhill Court Hotel in Kilkenny City across the weekend April 24 to 26.
The event is being organised by Kilkenny Macra na Feirme and Declan is one of the many hopefuls who are keen to impress the judges over the weekend. Declan, 24, is a member of the South Leitrim Macra na Feirme and is the Chairman of The South Leitrim West Cavan Vintage Club along with being a member of the Leitrim Motor Club. Declan believes he will make a good representative for Leitrim because he is a very friendly, outgoing and sociable guy, always willing to help out his friends and in the community, and is a proud Leitrim and Ballinamore man.
The weekend itinerary sees the contestants arrive at the hotel at approximately 7pm on Friday, with the on stage interviews starting at 9.30pm. Former Macra President Matt O’Keeffe will be conducting this stage of the competition.
Saturday morning sees the contestant challenges take place before each hopeful will be interviewed by the judges. Saturday evening sees a quick photo call before an informal banquet which will take place at 8pm.
Mr Personality 2015 will then be announced at midnight that evening.
