King Henry's fashion prowess has helped him nab a Ladies Day prize - for his wife.

A handbag bought by recently-retired Kilkenny hurling legend Henry Shefflin for his future wife when they were going out has helped her scoop a 'best dressed' title at the races on Saturday.

Deirdre Shefflin continued the family's winning ways at Gowran Park Racecourse in Co Kilkenny when she won the Morrison Mini and Lyrath Estate Hotel Ladies Day Competition. She said: "I'm delighted to actually be able to come as if Henry had not retired there is no way I could go to this on the day before a match.

"But now with Henry at home, I finally have a babysitter for the four children."
