If you have a passion for fashion, then it may well be worth your while heading to the Aghadoe Heights Hotel & Spa this September for an exclusive preview what's on trend for the coming autumn/winter season.

Enjoy a wonderful afternoon of superb food and wine in The New Collections Fashion Luncheon on Sunday, September 29, produced by Orla Diffily and her team at Upfront Model Management in association with Radio Kerry and Kelliher's Toyota, Tralee.

In addition to showcasing new collections from top designers and boutiques, the afternoon will also separately focus on sustainable style and how each of us can make a difference.

MC’ed by Elaine Kinsella from Radio Kerry, the New Collections Fashion Luncheon will commence with a ‘live from the red carpet’ as guests arrive followed by a champagne reception in the newly opened Terrace Bar.

Guests will enjoy a sumptuous four course luncheon with fine wines. Hair and make-up is by the multi award winning team at Sean Taaffe Group and there will also be a Best Dressed Lady and gift bags.

This stylish event is absolutely unmissable for everyone who loves fashion and want to see first what’s new for the autumn/winter season, Orla Diffily told the Killarney Advertiser.

“If you are looking to treat yourself to a fashionable and fun afternoon - with wonderful cuisine and fine wines - then this luncheon in the magical setting of the Aghadoe Heights Hotel is for you,” she said.

“As well as an exclusive first look at the latest trends for everyday and occasions, we will also showcase style from two of Ireland’s top designers. After lunch and the show everyone is welcome to stay on and join us for drinks accompanied by the Aghadoe’s pianist in the lounge."

A limited number of early bird tickets are on sale now from Eventbrite for €80 plus booking fee. There after they will be €90 plus booking fee. Early booking is advised as due to size of the venue capacity at this event is limited, she added.

“Stay tuned to Radio Kerry and social media for exclusive weekly reveals and lots of behind the scenes coverage of this exciting new fashion event.”

Ireland’s newest cycling event comes to Kenmare this month with an exciting and challenging course for the experienced cyclist.

Already attracting attention within cycling communities around the country, Velo Kenmare will tackle some of Kerry’s toughest climbs and highest mountain passes.

Taking place on October 22, Velo Kenmare is an 135km timed loop route starting and finishing in Kenmare. The total climbing distance is 1,650m, and organisers hope to appeal to serious cyclists who are looking for a new and thrilling challenge.

No stranger to cycling events, Velo Kenmare is being managed by Elite Events Management, who also successfully deliver iconic cycling events Wicklow 200, Ride Dingle and the Ring of Beara Cycle.
Cyclists are encouraged to register for Velo Kenmare on the Velo Cycle Ireland website www.velocycleireland.ie but places are limited for the enjoyment and safety of all participants, and anyone interested is urged to sign up soon as places are filling up.

TOUGH CLIMBS

​​​​The tough enough mountain climbs are over Molls Gap, Ballaghbeama Pass, Ballaghasheen and Coomakista. The route will take in breathtaking scenery Kenmare is famous for, and incorporating some of the most stunning parts of the Wild Atlantic Way and Ring of Kerry. It is hoped visitors to the cycle event will be encouraged to stay for a few days, and will all be given €20 vouchers or ‘Velo Dollars’ to spend in local shops which will be redeemable against goods and services in Kenmare.

Riders will be allotted a time slot to allow for a staggered start, taking them along a fully marshalled route, with medical cover, bike mechanic support, and hot food and entertainment at the finish in Kenmare.

Making its mark, Velo Kenmare participant race packs will come inside a yellow Velo Kenmare water bottle and finishers’ medals are in the shape of a yellow cow bell. Prizes will be awarded for the quickest top three male and top three female finishers, and fastest male and female will be awarded the title of King and Queen of the Kerry Mountains.

Experienced cyclists are encouraged to take on this exciting new challenge, testing themselves and their clubmates for the fastest finish across these four gruelling climbs, through some of the most beautiful landscape in the country for the best welcome back at the finish.
