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.

The family of a much-loved Killarney woman who passed away from cancer almost a year ago plan to run a marathon past her favourite local landmarks in her memory.

Linda Eviston died on October 10 last after a long battle with cancer.

Her husband Patrick and son Erik, with the support of her daughter Alannah, will run a 42.2km course, on the day before her anniversary to raise funds for the Irish Cancer Society.

The route will be based on landmarks that were an important part of Linda’s life. Starting from the family home in Dromkerry, before heading for the town centre and passing the Eviston House Hotel, Linda’s grandmother’s home at Park Road, Linda’s childhood home and national school in Glenflesk, Loreto where Linda attended secondary school, back to Killarney and finishing at Linda’s pride and joy – Brook Lodge Hotel.

“It is tough but we wanted to do something in Linda’s memory and help other people who might find themselves in similar circumstances,” Pat told the Killarney Advertiser. “We originally hoped to do the Dublin City Marathon but that got cancelled. This route is much better, but much tougher as it’s more hilly.”

All proceeds will be donated to the Irish Cancer Society and donations can be made via: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/inhonouroflinda.

It really was girl power at its finest – as 170 women of all ages braved the elements on Sunday to bare all for charity at the weekend.

Shore Acre in Camp was the location which was only revealed to the participants for Kerry’s first ever ‘Dip in the Nip’. And amongst the all female grouping were some Killarney ladies who joined in the empowering adventure for what was described as “a special and unforgettable morning” all in aid of Recovery Haven Kerry.

According to Marisa Reidy from Recovery Haven, the women were of all ages and all walks of life who came together for so many personal reasons.

“Some were still on their own cancer journey, some were celebrating coming out the other side and of course, many were there to honour friends and loved ones who they had lost to cancer, but we were all equal on the day – flaws and all,” Marisa, who also took part in the event, told the Killarney Advertiser.

“It was a truly uplifting and exhilarating experience and we are so, so grateful to each and every lady who joined us for a morning we will never forget. One woman described it as ‘companionship among strangers’ and that really sums it up perfectly. It was emotional, there were some tears, but lots of laughter and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. When the ladies hit the water, they all formed a circle and held hands in a gesture that was totally unplanned – it just happened organically and it was quite overwhelming.”

She added that a very special mention has to be made to Michaela and John Edwards and their team from Wild Water Adventures for their support and expertise in ensuring no stone was left unturned in making it a fabulous, safe event.

“It was an all-female team from beginning to end, from our own volunteers, stewards, registration, Gardai, teas and coffees, lifeguards, sea rescue – girl power at its finest! Now all that’s left to do is start planning for 2022!”

Donations are still being taken via the link on the Recovery Haven Kerry Facebook page.

“So far we are close on €9,000 which is just fabulous.”
