The 12th Mr. Personality Festival 2017 took place in the Springhill court hotel on the 7th and 8th April in Kilkenny. The festival was hosted by Kilkenny Macra and was sponsored by Kilkenny/Carlow and District Farm Relief Services. Contestants from all 31 regions travelled to the Marble City for a fun filled weekend where they were interviewed on stage with an optional party piece if they were brave enough! On Saturday morning the Mr Personality express collected our fine representatives from the Springhill Court Hotel via Garda escort headed for local bowling alley. Mighty craic was had by all as they tried to impress the judges by strutting their stuff on the alleyways. There were some bruised egos after being beaten by their female judges. Following this they had a gruelling interview with their judges in Dragons Den style! Judges for the weekend were Carmel Brennan, John Nolan and Mairead Holohan.
