It’s getting close to Bloom 2012 and with this in mind we asked Gary Graham to give us an update on the progress with designers and sponsors. Gary also outlines some new initiatives for the coming year. Staying with Bloom, it’s never to early to start your Chelsea Gold medal practise run and 10 year old Miah Ní Nualláin will be doing so at Bloom this year. She is the daughter of well known designer Fiann Ní Nualláin. Miah with the careful guidance of her mother/talent manager Melissa is also in search of a sponsor. With the fact that she is going to be the youngest ever accepted entrant the sponsor’s should be fighting over her, as this story will gain some major news space across the media spectrum.

He should find plenty of supporters at the IHNSA Trolley Fair next week. They will also be talking about Teagasc to Sub-Contract REPS Support Work. It may or may not be a cause of concern for users of the service depending on what they think of the existing service in the first place.

It will be important that the wealth of existing knowledge with in the body is still accessible to all.
