Love Island winner joins style queen at Killarney Races
The team at Killarney Racecourse have pulled off another major coup for this week’s festival with a guest appearance by ‘Love Island’ winner Greg O’Shea.

Greg, and glamorous model and TV personality Yvonne Connolly, will be the celebrity judges for the Best Dressed Lady and Man competitions tomorrow (Saturday), which will guarantee another bumper attendance on the final day of the four-day festival which got underway on Wednesday.

Limerick lad and rugby star Greg (24) became a major media star when millions of viewers watched as he won the smash hit reality TV series with Amber Gill.

Yvonne Connolly ¬is a winner of the VIP Most Stylish Woman award and the stunning mum-of-three is widely acknowledged as one of the most glamorous women in Ireland.

She is also an enthusiastic amateur jockey and she recently rode 'Neverrushacon' to victory at the Corinthian Challenge for Irish Injured Jockeys at The Curragh.

“I’m very much looking forward to returning to the Killarney Races to judge the best dressed on Ladies Day. Stylish ladies who will stand out for me will wear their outfits with confidence and elegance,” she said.

“I’m looking for individual flair, someone who puts their own stamp on a look without trying too hard.”
Best Dressed Lady will receive diamond jewellery valued at €1,000 and the man will get a wristwatch worth €600, both sponsored by Keane’s Jewellers of Cork, Limerick and Killarney.

There will also be prizes for the runners-up in both competitions.

Tomorrow’s action packed day will bring the curtain down on a memorable summer of racing in Killarney with an all flat card starting at 1.20pm with the feature race being the Vincent O’Brien Ruby Stakes worth €50,000 at 3.05pm.

It is just over a week since new restrictions were announced by the Government in an another effort to curb the spread of COVID-19.

An overwhelming 62.90% said they had reduced their level of contacts with people.

Interestingly, 37.10% of people had made no change to their lifestyle, but they could have been extra cautious already.

A tiny minority – just 1.61% – said they increased their social contacts over the last week.

Local students went to great efforts on Friday last to highlight a very important message about inclusion.

Staff and students in Killarney Community College came together for ‘Stand Up Awareness Week’ as part of a national campaign where second-level schools take a stand against homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying.

All staff wore a rainbow colour and students wore rainbow coloured accessories to show their support for the campaign as Killarney Community College is a diverse, inclusive, accepting, and welcoming safe space for everyone.

The majority of students made a particularly great effort in terms of wearing rainbow coloured accessories were awarded house points.

During the week, the LGBTI+ flag was hanging proudly in the school canteen. Transition Years decorated the General Purpose area with informative posters, and in SPHE classes, students learned about LGBTI+ terminology and history.

“It’s important that school is a safe and inclusive place for anyone attending regardless of their race, sex, religion or sexuality,” Principal, Stella Loughnane, said.

“I’m delighted that our school community marked the occasion and brought great colour while highlighting a very important message. One of the key words of our mission statement is inclusion making this awareness day a very apt one.”
