Controversy a world away from sisters' glamorous life
The Lipsetts are more used to the glitz of the society pages rather than the harsh glare of the headlines, says Alison O'Riordan
THE Lipsett girls are the glamorous offspring of Robert and Therese Lipsett, owners of Rostrevor, the nursing home in Dublin's Rathgar, which was at the centre of sensational allegations of abuse of it's elderly residents, last week
Representatives of all things stylish and opulent, the three sisters were seen as fashionistas whose images burned brightly on the social diary pages each week.
In their expensive clothes, with perfectly manicured manes, the south Dublin girls lived the high-octane lifestyle, frequenting events like the VIP Style Awards, the Punchestown Races and the A-list haunt Residence.
