BREWING up support for a good cause proved extremely enjoyable on Saturday as Killarney Rotary Club hosted its eighth annual Afternoon Tea at The Malton. As always, the fundraiser was sold-out event well in advance and it was easy to see why. Ladies – and a few gents – mingled in the elegant hotel foyer during a champagne reception, which was followed by a mouth-watering afternoon tea in the Garden Restaurant.

Talented young Kilcummin singer Lily Foley held the audience spellbound throughout the afternoon with showstopping renditions of such classic songs as Diamonds are Forever and Hallelujah and the event had Killian Foley as DJ.

During the catwalk show, which was co-ordinated by award-winning fashion designer Clodagh Irwin Owens, Clodagh showcased her latest collection, while models also displayed outfits from Kerry Woollen Mills, Lyne’s of High Street and Paco at Killarney Outlet Centre.

Must-have accessories that featured in the glamorous fashion extravaganza included jewellery by Brian de Staic Jewellers and elegant headpieces by Mary Kelliher Millinery and Clodagh Irwin Owens.

Breda Dwyer of St Vincent De Paul told the gathering how the funds raised by the afternoon tea would make a difference to the lives of people in need in the community.

Killarney Rotary Club President Angela O’Connor thanked the businesses who supported the event, ensuring that all the funds raised go directly to The St Vincent De Paul.

Ciara Irwin Foley, former Killarney Rotary Club president and organiser of the event, thanked all those who bought tickets at the event on the day.

The raffle featured a number of exciting prizes, including first prize, an original painting by Carmel T Madigan, valued at over €450.
