Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS - Stu­art Robert Scott Mor­ri­son’s Steven Ciobo Karen An­drews

A NEW Ir­ish bar com­ing soon to Surfers Par­adise is bring­ing its pop­u­lar, head­line-grab­bing “hottest ginger” com­pe­ti­tion with it.

The which also has Surfers Par­adise night­clubs

and on party strip Orchid Av­enue, plans open­ing

Ir­ish bar by mid-next month.

It will open in place of Fid­dler’s on Cav­ill Av­enue and any­one fa­mil­iar with Finn McCool’s in Bris­bane en­ter­tain­ment precinct For­ti­tude Val­ley should recog­nise it – the fitout is sim­i­lar. And also fa­mil­iar will be the Finn McCool’s “hottest ginger” hunt typ­i­cally held in July.

It is as it sounds – en­trants aim to be the most at­trac­tive per­son with ginger hair in a com­pe­ti­tion that has made na­tional TV, in­clud­ing The Project.

Hall­mark Group mar­ket­ing boss

tells ATG: “We will def­i­nitely be bring­ing that to the Gold

Hall­mark Group, Retro’s Shoot­ers Finn McCool’s Tammy Wood

Coast as well and make it even big­ger and bet­ter.

“There is a big Ir­ish com­mu­nity on the Gold Coast.

“There were a lot of happy peo­ple – af­ter they’d heard about Fid­dler’s clos­ing – to hear Finn McCool’s was com­ing.”

Prizes in­clude cash, a modelling con­tract and a pro photo shoot. Ms Wood said part of the Hall­mark Group re­de­vel­op­ment of the for­mer Fid­dler’s venue would be util­is­ing the mez­za­nine floor: “It will over­look the live en­ter­tain­ment and it will all be nice and new.”

Finn McCool’s in Surfers Par­adise will em­ploy 20-plus staff. CON­TRO­VERSY-prone Gold Coast Fed­eral MP

Maybe due to his link to a mys­tery South Amer­ica-Aus­tralia “not-for­profit, apo­lit­i­cal” group, $2800 monthly data bills to tax­pay­ers and bungling ba­sic eco­nomic ques­tions on Sky?
