Celebrities and international media gathered at Ballinacurra House,
Kinsale, where Mark and Denise Duffield-Thomas from the UK and Australia,
were chosen the Top couple for the Ultimate Job in Ireland - and probably
the world! After a weekend of challenges and beating stiff competition,
Mark and Denise Duffield-Thomas have landed the Ultimate dream job: €20,000 and 6 months of luxury travel around the globe for Irish wedding and honeymoon
company Runaway Bride and Groom.com.
The Top 10 candidates came from Australia, US, Canada, South Africa,
Brazil, UK, Galway, Wexford, Sligo, Dublin and Cork to enjoy a full
Kinsale dining and leisure experience at some of Kinsale's top class
restaurants, clubs and venues, such as Blue Haven, Hamlets Bar, White Lady
Nightclub, Trident Hotel and Carlton Hotel.
Organised by Run Away Brideand Groom.com, the Ultimate Job in Ireland - and
probably the world! received 30,000 applications from over 90 countries
and global media attention since launching on 19th February.
Denise and Mark will immediately start preparing for their first trip
after the announcement and will fly out at the end of May to Zanzibar,
Mauritius and private escorted safari in Kenya - a week in each
destination - just for starters.
"We have had the most amazing weekend in Kinsale and we hope to make you
all proud as ambassadors for Ireland around the globe in the next six
months," they said.
