CHIC ladies and dapper gents have converged on Killarney Racecourse this afternoon for the eagerly awaited ladies day. Top Irish model and Dancing with the Stars contestant Thalia Heffernan has joined Kerry football legend and winner of Dancing with Stars Aidan O’Mahony to judge the Dawn Milk Ladies Day 2017.

The style stakes are high at the Killarney Races and the best-dressed lady will win a trip for two to Paris and a specially commissioned crystal vase. A new fashion category for gents has also been introduced this year and the best-dressed gent will receive a trip to Milan for two and a specially commissioned crystal decanter.

Ladies day judge Thalia Heffernan said she is on the lookout for “a well-rounded thought-out outfit”. Aidan O’Mahony also provided gents with his fashion tips, stating he was seeking “individual, well-coordinated style on the gents and something that will stand out from the norm”. He also advised that the gents “should not shy away from a bit of colour or floral”.

The Dawn Milk Ladies Day at Killarney’s four-day racing festival in July is renowned across the country as one of the most prestigious ladies day events on the fashion calendar in Ireland. A total of ten ladies and ten gents will be selected as finalists by the judges. The judges will be selecting finalists until 3.30pm.

John O’Sullivan, general manager, Dawn Milk, said: “Dawn Milk is delighted to sponsor Ladies Day at the Killarney Races for 24 years, making it one of the longest ladies day patronages in Ireland.”

Dawn Milk also sponsors the day’s racing on Thursday including the Dawn Milk Run Handicap Steeplechase (€11,500), the Dawn Omega Milk Handicap Hurdle (€12,500) and the Dawn Hi & Low Milk Beginners Steeplechase (€12,500).
