The Inspire event at the Crescent Shopping Centre was a complete success. Here I am with designers Caroline Mitchell, Linda Wilson, Antoinette OConnell, Emma Mulcair, Marion Murphy Cooney, Clare Slattery, Stephan Lynch, and Natalie King
WHAT a weekend of fashion and style we enjoyed at Munster’s biggest fashion event, Inspire, at the Crescent Shopping Centre.

WHAT a weekend of fashion and style we enjoyed at Munster’s biggest fashion event, Inspire, at the Crescent Shopping Centre.

It kicked off with a beauty afternoon presented by Laura Birmingham, then it was the turn of the top designers in the region for the Design Collective, and from there we went on the fashion trail through the malls with the best of winter and Christmas looks from the huge number of fashion stores throughout the shopping centre. The attendance for the four days was phenomenal.

I personally want to thank John Davitt, manager of the Crescent, and his staff for all their help and assistance at Inspire.

THE Aer Lingus Shannon base cabin crew’s chosen charity this year is the Clare Crusaders Children’s Clinic that works with over 350 children in local communities with all levels of special needs providing free occupational therapy, speech therapy and family support. As the Shannon Base is celebrating 20 years, it was perfect timing to have a Cabin Crew Gala Ball with proceeds raised going to Clare Crusaders.

The evening took place on Saturday November 1 at The Radisson Blu Limerick with a sparkling reception with canapés. There was great style all round with the Shannon-based crew, past and present looking resplendent and lots of local business people attending.

Entertainment was provided during the evening by Jack Wyse and he was assisted by Peter O’Neill who got into the great spirit of fun. Cllr Ann Norton from the Clare Crusaders expressed thanks for the awareness raised, and for the funds for their very worthy charity and the great work done on their behalf by the Shannon Base Cabin Crew.
