CLE Montalto Montage

Country weekend at Montalto Estate


CLE Ltd already organises the Great Game Fairs of Ireland at Shanes Castle Antrim and Birr Castle Offaly and the germ of an idea for a two-day event at Montalto Estate, which had not been open to the public for 30 years, grew from those events. For Summerisland, work on this project started back in September 2013 and continued right through to November 2014, a fourteen-month project that included:

  1. Writing and submitting grant applications to various bodies and for various aspects of the overall event
  2. Writing and designing logos, various promotional materials, bespoke letters and presentations and other collateral as required
  3. Attending meetings and presentations to attract funding and for planning purposes
  4. Researching and sourcing commercial sponsorship
  5. Sourcing and compiling a comprehensive portfolio of quotations for supply of goods and services to the event
  6. Planning, organising and delivering a fashion show on each day of the event, incorporating ladies’ fashion and country fashion
  7. Administering grant claims post event

Organising an event of this calibre (it attracted almost 15,000 visitors to the Ballynahinch area) is a huge undertaking, and Summerisland’s contribution to the planning and organising demonstrates our flexibility and adaptability to help clients deliver, no matter what the project.
