Glitz and glamour at the annual masquerade ball

WE ENJOYED an exclusive evening of glitz and glamour at the Black Tie Gala Masquerade Ball at the Savoy Hotel.

The night began with a champagne reception, followed by a six-course gourmet dinner created by executive chef Graeme Campbell and his team in the sophisticated setting of the Savoy Restaurant. Guests on the night wore the most amazing masks to add to the glamour.

My husband Ger and I were joined by my good friend Liz Mangan and friends as I celebrated my birthday. We danced the night away to the classic crooner Liam O’Brien and the Million Dollar Swing Band.

We are huge fans of Liam and we’re delighted that he was crooning on the night. It was the third year of this amazing annual ball and long may it continue!

Hi Style Awards

WHAT great fun and what a really nice surprise we had recently at the New Yorker 2017 Hi Style Awards in the Clayton Hotel Silver Springs Cork. In the past I have been honoured at the Hi Style Awards but imagine my surprise when Ger and I received the award for Hi’s most stylish couple in business.

There were more than 500 people in attendance and the glamour was amazing. There was quite a lot of celebrities in attendance including the gorgeous Rachel Allen, the vivacious Amanda Brunker and our own Deric Hartigan of TV3 . I also spoke to Gerald Keane who seems to be keeping himself fit and dapper after his stint on Open Transformation.

Male model with the Holman Lee Agency and Limerick Chronicle columnist Patrick McLoughney picked up the award for Hi Magazine’s male model 2017. It really was a great night of glamour, fun and awards.
