Ballyboughal garden designer heads to Wales

Local landscape garden designer Peter Donegan is set to become the first Irish designer to represent Ireland at the Royal Horticultural Society Flower Show in Cardiff in just a few short days time and excitement is building around Ballyboughal as the local garden designer heads for Wales.

To help mark its 180th anniversary, horticultural trade charity Perennial has partnered with Ballyboughal-based Peter with a show garden at the show on April 12-14.

It is the first time Perennial has exhibited at the Royal Horticultural Society Flower Show, and the first time Peter, or any Irish designer, has had designs accepted to the prestigious flower show.

Local business men Eoin Delaney from Directing Media and Sean Conville of Two Spots are sponsors of Peter's garden and competition entry so it is a 100 per cent Fingal effort bidding to impress the judges in Cardiff.

Mr Delaney said: 'It's great to be able to support Peter and be a part of such an amazing achievement from another local businesses.

'Peter is not long back from France designing and realizing the WW1 centenary peace garden, and is now off to Cardiff to represent Ireland again. I wish him the best of luck and support in Cardiff.'

Mr Conville from Two Spots said: 'I am delighted and proud to be able to support Peter, who is the first Irish garden designer in Royal Horticultural Society Cardiff.

'I wish him all the best and look forward to welcoming him home with the medal. I'll have the coffee ready!'
