For the second week running our Saturday morning quiz winner was from Cornwall. Pictured above is Shirley Simmons with our compere Dave O’Neill (one half of the world famous O’Neil twins). So another fabulous Club Olympus 20 Year anniversary shirt will be winging its way to the southwestern corner of the UK. Shirley is pictured below with husband Chris.
Chris and Shirley Simmons are Timeshare owners in Malta and are guests at Club Olympus via RCI. This is their fourth visit to Tenerife and they are enjoying the hospitality here at Club Olympus. It’s a pleasure to have them here with us.
We have had quite a few owners and guests asking where Mark O’Neill is (the other half of the world famous O’Neill twins). Mark also had a long spell as compere at Club Olympus. Well just so that you know, he is alive and kicking and pictured below in the Poolside Bar with his bro!
Davey Dave and Marky Mark in all their glory!
Mark is of course still talking as the shot was taken, no surprise there then. Both lads are very popular with our guests and owners alike and have enjoyed 16 years of compereing and cabaret work in Tenerife. Dave tells us that they came here all those years ago on holiday and just never left. The boys are originally from Walney Island, Barrow-In-Furness, Cumbria. Their experience in show business came from working as Red Coats at Butlins and other holiday camps. The question they are most often asked is “who is the oldest?” and after some hesitation and various attempts to wriggle out of the conversation, Dave admits that he is by 20 minutes although, he says that Mark looks a lot older.
It’s a pleasure for Club Olympus to be associated with the twins and we wish them all the best.
