Former Thurles Ursuline Convent Students Walk Green Carpet At Oscar Wilde Awards.

L-R: Ms Kerry Condon and Ms Jessie Buckley

Two top actresses, currently both in huge demand, and both previously educated at the Ursuline Convent Secondary School here in Thurles, Co. Tipperary, were among those who walked the Green Carpet at the Oscar Wilde Awards last night; latter organised by the US-Ireland Alliance.

Seeing both actresses, namely Ms Kerry Condon and Ms Jessie Buckley, ushered in a huge sense of pride for the people of Thurles and Tipperary, through their many achievements to date, within the entertainment industry.

The US-Ireland Alliance is a proactive, non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to consolidating existing relations between the United States and the island of Ireland and building that relationship for the future. The Oscar Wilde Awards event is an annual event of the US-Ireland Alliance.

Green Party Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media Minister, Ms Catherine Martin, travelled to Los Angeles, with the aim of developing stronger links with the entertainment industry.
While many eyes are currently focused on Ireland’s 14 nominations, here was an ideal time to attempt to attract film companies, granting them opportunities to build stronger relationships with Ireland’s scenic locations and its supberb acting talent.

We understand Ms Martin has already met with Sony, Disney, and with representatives from Marvel.

We wish all those nominated for Academy Awards, (latter awards to be announced on March 13th, 2023), the very best of luck.
