Dressed to impress at fundraising fashion show
On Friday night we headed for the Lisdoo where an action-packed fashion show was taking place as a fundraiser for the Rape Crisis Centre North East and the place was really buzzing by the time we got there.
Fashions on show were from Neola, Ruby Nu, Catwalk, Michael H., After Sybil and from the T.Y. from St. Vincents School along with various stalls including the brand new and very impressive Sarah's Sweet Cart.
I wasn't too long in the door when I met up with councillors Miriam Carthy from Kilcurry and Siobhan McArdle from Dunleer who were there to help out where they could and were really looking forward to the night.
After this I headed over for a chat with Mary Mackin from Sliabh Foy Park with Anne McMullan from Oaklawns who told me they were there to cheer on Mary Farrell who was modelling on the night and assured me it was going to be an epic night.
I then caught up with Irene McDonald from Inniskeen with her sister Breda Morton also from Inniskeen, they were there to support the cause and check out to see what the latest that is available from the fashion houses.
Not too far away I met up with Rosie Winters from Point Road and Miriam Maguire from Annagassan who told me she was there because her daughter Claire Simms was modelling with the TY's and her outfit was totally recycled!
Making my way through the crowds I then got a swift word with Margaret McEleavey from St. Gerards Square who was with Bernadette McShane from Lordship and Pauline Reid from Blackrock who told me her daughter Emma Jane was also heading for the catwalk later on with the TY's.
Making my way over to another group I then had the pleasure of talking to Sharon Arrowsmith from Bay Estate and Jackie Lucas from Point Road who were with Aoife Stewart from Kingswood and Rachel Lucas from Point Road who told me they were there because Aoife's cousin Miriam works in the R.C.C.N.E. and wanted to lend their support.
I then made my way over for a quick word with Sarah Finnegan and husband Red who were exhibiting Sarah's Sweet Cart which looked extremely well and should certainly be checked out!
Next I met with Mary Murphy from Cooley who was there with her mum Eithne McNally from Knockbridge who told me they were there to cheer on Mary Farrell who is a godmother and sister-in-law respectively.
After this I had the pleasure of talking to Niamh and Helen Gosling from Dublin Road who told me they couldn't wait to see what the models were wearing and also to support the night.
Making my way further through the crowds I then met up with Patricia Corbett from Oldbridge who was with Doreen Rankin from Mount Avenue, Susan Doogan from Faughart, and Catherine McEneaney from Fatima who told me they celebrating Catherine and Patricia's birthdays, on the same day!
Not too far away I then met up with Janie Gaskin from Saltown and Dympna Mackin from the Paddock who told me it was going to be a cracking night and for such a good cause too.
They were sitting with Maria Mackin and Aoife Mackin from the Paddock who were up for a mad night and couldn't wait for the show to get going.
I then caught up with three generations of the same family Mary Dullaghan from Dowdallshill, Anne and Rachel Healy from Dromiskin who were looking forward to an eventful evening.
After this I got a word with Monica Connolly from Knockbridge, Carmel Clyne from Seatown who was there with the TY girl and Olive Callan from Carlingford who were in great form and told me it was going to be a great night.
Finally, before we departed I got a word with the extremely hard working Ciara Sloan from Woodbury Gardens and Grainne Holland from Knockbridge who were busy on the door making sure the night was a huge success.
