It was that time of the year again for the annual Ocean FM Country Awards in the Great Northern Hotel in Bundoran. Nobody does it better that Ocean FM with Daniel Browne, Marion Fitzgerald and John Ryan at the helm you wouldn’t expect any better.

I was back again to capture all the highlights of the evening. The queue starting forming after 6.30 and the excitement was building as the guests took their seats in the huge ballroom of the hotel with nearly 1000 people in attendance.

Glamour girl herself Marion Fitzgerald along with her colleague John Ryan were the comperes for the evening introducing the Country Stars. Putting on a fab nights entertainment were Derek Ryan, Mike Denver, Patrick Feeney, Robert Mizzell, Lee Matthews, Paul Kelly, Thomas Gillespie, Farrah Bogle, Johnny Brady and Jim Devine.

Each of the above was presented with their awards. I was disappointed that Niall Delaney wasn’t there so I had to settle for second best Tim Collins, MD of Ocean FM!!  Well done to all the team at Ocean FM for organising yet another very successful night.

Thanks to Briane McEniff for his hospitality on the night.
