Dressed to impress: Stylish Fiona wins trip Paris

Published

Fiona McSweeney from Kilcummin walked away with a trip for two to Paris after being named Best Dressed Lady at yesterday’s Killarney Races. Hundreds of glamorous ladies were vying to claim the prestigious top prize at the 25th Dawn Milk Ladies Day but, in the end, it was Fiona who caught the eye of celebrity judge Una Healy.

Speaking to the Killarney Advertiser after her win, Fiona said she was in complete shock. “The competition here was very high,” she said. “I’m over the moon.”

Fiona’s headpiece is from Liz O’Sullivan (Marc Millinery, Cork) and her jumpsuit is Lavish Alice online.

Una Healy’s husband, rugby star Ben Foden, was responsible for selecting the Best Dressed Gent and Michael Dorgan from Cork beat off stiff competition to pick up a trip for two to Milan.

The award-winning Kingdom Pride in Kerry festival is back next week and Killarney will take centre stage.

Kingdom Pride will be celebrated in towns all across the county from July 17 to 21.

The organisation’s flagship Party in the Park event will be held again in Killarney House and Gardens, following the Pride march in the town centre on July 20.

This year, in solidarity with the people of Palestine, Kingdom Pride in Kerry is inviting the people of Kerry to come to show their unity by bringing Palestinian flags and kites to the march, and to the Party in the Park.

“Pride is a protest for human rights all over the world. Here in the Kingdom, we have been so lucky to receive tremendous community support from our allies and supporters, and we see the struggle for liberation of all peoples as a united cause,” said Daniel Quirke, chairperson of the organising committee.

“Our events have always welcomed everyone, regardless of gender, orientation, religion, or nationality. We truly believe that together we can create positive change through caring for and loving one another. This year is no exception, and we look forward to helping to highlight the Palestinian cause, and to bringing people together to keep generating positive change for all people.”

Events will take place in Cahersiveen, Listowel, Killorglin, Tralee and Dingle, and include an Irish comedy night with Áine Gallagher, an Irish-language movie screening, yoga, sea swimming, poetry and storytelling, bowling, pitch and putt, a lively drag night at the INEC, and plenty more for people of all ages.

“We do our best to keep tickets as low-cost as possible, and we have lots of events that are totally free to attend. It is important to us that people can share Pride with us, regardless of income. Especially with the rise of the cost of living putting a strain on people’s pockets.” added the chairperson.
