"I am really excited to be taking part in judging this year's Dawn Milk Ladies Day in Killarney. It will be great to see all the ladies out in their finery and I know it will be so hard to choose a winner.

"I'll be looking for a well-rounded thought out outfit. I can't wait to see all the contenders! I will be looking for someone confident in their outfit and that will shine through," Ladies Day Judge Thalia Heffernan said.

Aidan O'Mahony also provided gents with his fashion tips stating: "I am looking forward to seeing individual, well co-ordinated style on the gents and something that will stand out from the norm. It will be great to see gents getting recognition for their styling efforts as there is a fantastic variety of dapper style to choose from these days. The gents should not shy away from a bit of colour or floral!"
