IRISH TIMES PHOTOGRAPHER TOM LAWLOR BRINGS BACK 1985 MICHELE MEMORIES TODAY

Michele

Arminta Wallace wrote a lovely piece today for the Irish Times Magazine section. It brings back so many great memories. Back in 1985, THIRTY years ago, we invited all the leading journalists down to our Lake to help promote what became the World’s biggest Cash Prize Jump Classic. There were so many journalists, we had to hire a bus ! The lovely Michele Cautley (now Mrs Jameson) was the star of the show and was also Irish National Overall Waterski Champion and Golden Falls member at that time. Photographer Tom Lawlor was also one of the best of his generation and here he has captured a beautiful shot of Michele dressed in a Ball Gown making it all look easy. The following day, a photo of Michele and Des Burke-Kennedy appeared on the front page of the Irish Times – both looking like they were on their way to meet Patrick Hillery, the then President of Ireland !

Many thanks to the Irish Times – and make sure you buy your copy today ! Also, if you have some old photos of fun times at Golden Falls, do send them to : des@burke-kennedy.com
