The 11th Mr. Personality Festival 2016 took place in the Springhill Court hotel last weekend with Cork man Nicholas O'Donoghue claiming the title. The festival was hosted by Kilkenny Macra and was sponsored by Kilkenny/Carlow and District Farm Relief Services. Contestants from all 31 regions travelled to the Marble City for a fun filled weekend where they were interviewed on stage with an optional party piece if they were brave enough. On Saturday morning they completed challenges and relay racing. Judges for the weekend were Carmel Brennan, John Nolan and Claire Brennan.
