Donal O'Lochlainn and wife Edna teamed up with Fermoy Musical Society for this year's Bloom competition.

With Bord Bia’s Bloom Festival online once again this year, Fermoy’s own Donal O’Lochlainn and wife Edna have teamed up with Fermoy Musical Society for a one-of-a-kind entry.

Last year, when the competition which normally takes place in Phoenix Park, Dublin moved online and asked people to participate from their own homes, Donal, Edna and friend Niall shot a video of the garden and secured the winning entry for the ‘Best Craic’ category.
