RIVERFEST, one of Ireland's biggest and most popular festivals is back this May and it’s going to be bigger and better than ever! Kicking off on the May Bank Holiday weekend, Riverfest is among the most energetic and fun filled festivals of the year in Ireland.

It has really staked a claim nationally in terms of being the place to be for the Bank Holiday weekend.

We at the Holman Lee Agency are delighted to be part of Riverfest for the past decade in the form of Fashion Friday which kicks off on May 3 in Arthur's Quay shopping centre. Some of the top boutiques, designers and accessory stores in the city will be showcasing great summer looks.

Refreshments will be served on the day thanks to Bowes Ryan and the shows kick off at 11.30am and 3.30pm.

I hope you will all come and support us, as it promises to be a great day of fashion and fun with some surprises on the day!

Midwest Empowerment and Equality Conference

I WAS delighted to hear from Dr Mary Ryan, consultant endocrinologist at Bon Secours, regarding The Midwest Empowerment and Equality Conference which will be held at the University Concert Hall on Wednesday, May 1 from 9.30am to 3.30pm. I attended this conference last year and I thought it was brilliant. It addressed social issues affecting both women and men. Mary Harney, chancellor of UL, will open the conference which will include some of the most influential speakers in their field. This is a conference not to be missed. Tickets at www.UCH.ie.
