CELEBRITY BAINISTEOIR PIPPA SAYS ‘SORRY’ OVER COMMENTS ABOUT DONEGAL

first_imgCelebrity Bainisteoir – The Rivals‘ star Pippa O’Connor has responded to criticism of her dreading the drive up and back from Dublin to Donegal.After being drawn to coach at the Naomh Bríd club on Sunday’s opening episode, she expressed a fear that all the travelling would be too difficult for her and that every time she’d been in Donegal, ‘it always rained’.She moaned “I’m going home. I’m not going to Donegal. You are joking me.” When the catwalk queen realised she WAS coming to Ireland’s most stunning county, she complained about our lovely weather.“I can’t go to Donegal. Any time I’ve been to Donegal it has rained. Could you put me any further? I would say thanks but I can’t. I got the short straw,” she moaned.But the reality has proved to be anything but a burden as she prepares a team to take on husband Brian Ormond in the RTÉ One show.“When I first found out I was been sent to Donegal I was furious,” admits the Kildare model. “The thought of all the driving up and down, the bad weather when I’d been there before just turned me off but actually it was the best thing that could have happened.“The reaction I got from the team and club when they found out I was to be their manager completely made up for it. Everyone up there has been brilliant so far and I’m in it with the club to take them the whole way to the final.“They gave me the best welcome, I now feel lucky to have gotten a very passionate team. Donegal is my new home of late, I’ve been up here all weekend for a friend’s wedding – I can’t get enough of it!”Celebrity Bainisteoir – The Rivals continues on Sundays on RTÉ One. CELEBRITY BAINISTEOIR PIPPA SAYS ‘SORRY’ OVER COMMENTS ABOUT DONEGAL was last modified: September 11th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CELEBRITY BAINISTEOIR PIPPA SAYS ‘SORRY’ OVER COMMENTS ABOUT DONEGALlast_img
