Little collection makes big impression

The Little Museum of Dublin was packed to the rafters on Tuesday evening as the quaint cultural hub hosted two launches for the glitterati.

Welcoming guests downstairs was Ukranian artist Sergey Talichkin, who unveiled his solo show, Ascensions.

Newstalk's Chris O'Donoghue found himself particularly drawn to 'City Bliss'. Perhaps he'll make it a gift for recently returned co-anchor Ivan Yates.

"Well, the old banter is certainly back anyway," he told The Diary.

"I've been at Newstalk 10 years now and, with Pat Kenny's arrival, things have changed. There's a real air of confidence at the station now. Pat is no diva either, he's a true prof-essional."

Robert Doggett, of Trocadero restaurant, scientist Mary Anderson and PR guru Kate Bowe showed their support, and also admiring the spoils on his way upstairs was Guggi, who said he was thoroughly impressed by the colourful creations.

Two flights of stairs above Sergey's bash, heavily pregnant Aisling O'Loughlin talked of being "close to the finish line".

The TV3 presenter is due to give birth to her second child on November 22.

"It's the final stretch now, so I'm looking forward to reaching the big day," Aisling, accompanied by partner Nick McInnes and their son Patrick, said.

They were among the attendees sampling the goats cheese tartlets at the How To Be A Mother book launch, written by journalist Emily Hourican.

We also spotted chef Domini Kemp, Chapter One's Ross Lewis and model Ruth Griffin.
