COULD Michael Healy Rae really be Munster's most stylish man? Well yes he could, according to the people at Hi Magazine who have nominated the south Kerry TD in their inaugural Style Awards, which are due to announced in November.

The dapper deputy is well known for being colourful, but generally for his turn of phrase rather than for his clothes. He will vie for the honours with GAA style icons Paul Galvin and Donal Og Cusack and Munster rugby's Donncha O'Callaghan and Alan Quinlan in the hotly contested category that also features the likes of Daithí O Sé and President Obama's famous cousin, Henry Healy.

The most stylish man accolade is just one of 18 categories that will be contested at the gala awards ceremony on November 9 hosted by the the Cork-based magazine, which is edited by Tralee woman Margaret Brick.

Kerry is hugely represented in all 18 categories, from Munster's most stylish restaurant, hotel, boutique and spa to the region's most stylish beauty salon, hair salon, stylist and fashion designer.

Kerry's stylish ladies are also very much to the fore in this year's awards, with seven of the 15 nominees in the most stylish woman category hailing from the Kingdom. There is also big Kerry representation in the most stylish business woman category, while a number of the county's top models are among the contenders in Hi Magazine's Model of the Year competition. Rose of Tralee CEO Anthony O'Gara, meanwhile, is also in the running for Hi's prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award.

Margaret explained that the winners will be decided through a combination of readers' votes and judges' evaluations, with voting currently ongoing. A comprehensive list of contenders in each category and how to vote for them is available now on Hi Magazine's facebook page or on www.himagazine.ie
