DEDICATED followers of fashion will be hotfooting it to Killarney before the month is out, thanks to Killarney Legion GAA Club.
Make sure you mark Thursday, April 28, in your diary as it will see leading Irish designers and boutiques unveil their latest creations and collections at a style extravaganza in The Malton Hotel.
Speaking at the launch of the event in Killarney House & Gardens, Killarney Legion GAA Club chairman Enda Walshe said: “Last year's show, which attracted close to 600 people, was a great night for fashion lovers and this year promises to be even better.”
Norma O’Donoghue of the Norma O’Donoghue Model Agency added: “The line-up is a who's who of top Irish designers while the country's top boutiques will also be showcasing what's hot for summer 2016.”
Norma and her team will host the evening. The agency’s models will be styled by Killarney's award-winning hair specialists at Sean Taaffe Hair & Beauty, complemented by makeup by Before and After Make-Up Artists.
Pulling the strings on the night will be Radio Kerry's Alan Finn, joined by celebrity style guru Noel Cunningham. “Noel gladly mingled with the audience at the inaugural event last year, and his wit and charm wooed all in attendance,” added Norma.
The best-dressed lady award is kindly sponsored by Keanes Jewellers of Killarney, Cork and Limerick.
The event will commence with a wine reception. Tickets, €25, can be booked from The Malton Hotel, Kerry's Boutique, Sewell’s Pharmacy and Keanes Jewellers.

Nicole Coffey of Nicole’s Hair Salon on St Anne’s was inspired to run a fundraiser for a women’s refuge after hearing distressing stories from some of her clients.

On Saturday last she offered a wash and blow-dry to clients and rather than charging them for the her services her customers made a donation to Adapt Women’s Refuge in Tralee.

Nicole was inspired to run the charity day because a lot of her regular clients opened up to her while they were getting their hair done.

The timing of her charity day was poignant as it came just days after Ashling Murphy was murdered while out for a run in her own town of Tullamore.

“People open up while I do their hair, many of them would not know that there is a refuge in Kerry,” she told the Killarney Advertiser. “I have experience with clients who are struggling. I had this idea to create more awareness for Adapt.”

She raised €2,000 for Adapt and the cheque was handed over to the Tralee-based charity on Thursday night this week.

Such was the success of her charity day Nicole worked from 7am to 7pm and as well as cash donations customers also donated vouchers and care packs to the charity.
