Catherine Nevin was photographed in an all-black outfit while on day release from the Dóchas wing of Mountjoy Prison last week.

The so-called 'Black Widow' wore black leggings, a loose black top and runners, which she teamed with a black handbag and designer sunglasses.

The 64-year-old, who is serving a life sentence for the April 1997 murder of her publican husband Tom Nevin, also wore her hair in a French braid while on the shopping spree.

During her trial between February and April 2000, such was the public fascination with her coiffed hair, manicured nails and stylish clothes, the judge ordered a ban prohibiting the media from reporting on her appearance.
