Here I am pictured with committee members and models at Ballykisteen Hotel ahead of the fashion show for Clionas Foundation and Caherline National School on July 24
WHAT a great crowd turned out for the Pride of Tipperary fashion show in Aherlow House Hotel which featured lots of fashion from local boutiques.

WHAT a great crowd turned out for the Pride of Tipperary fashion show in Aherlow House Hotel which featured lots of fashion from local boutiques.

It was packed to capacity with the crowds really enjoying the fashion and the fabulous contestants who entertained the crowd with their wonderful stories about life and ambition. Modelling on the night was a group of ladies from Circle of Friends, a cancer support centre in Tipperary, who benefit from all the funds raised during the festival. They were tremendous on the ramp and looked great in all the clothes from local boutiques. The festival has a massive schedule of events. TV star Nadia Forde judged the Tipperary Races ladies day, which was last Saturday. The crowning of the Pride of Tipperary 2015 will take place on July 18. Best of luck to all of the girls in the running!

Sometimes I feel there are quite a lot of fashion shows, but when you think about it, 99.9% of them are for charity! One super fashion show on its way is the fashion show for Cliona’s Foundation and Caherline National School in Ballykisteen Hotel on July 24. Organiser Suzie O’Kelly is urging people to book that babysitter, grab all your friends and head to this great event. The evening kicks off at 6pm with Prosecco reception, a barbecue reception, exhibition and live entertainment and, of course, the fantastic fashion. You can book you ticket from Suzie on 06233333.

Chat next week, Celia xx
