There'll be a right Kerry-on next weekend. And for once, I won't be in the middle of it. Xpose star Lisa Cannon is heading to the ultra-swish Sheen Falls hotel with her fiance, Richard Keatley, for a spa break.

"I've never been so I'm really looking forward to the stay at Halloween," Lisa told me, adding that at the end of next month she and Richard - to whom she got engaged in Paris in October 2013 - are going for "a little holiday" in Florence and then Rome. "Downtime is much needed as it's been so hectic," she said.

Indeed she met director Jim Sheridan last Sunday on a flight to London when she was travelling over to interview Brad Pitt in connection with his war film Fury (he answered a war question put by Lisa and supplied by her 101-year-old granny).

A delay in the flight meant that Lisa and Jim ended up chatting for an hour before the plane eventually took off.

Your social columnist sat beside publishing mogul Kevin Kelly and his fragrant wife Rose on a late night flight from London last week. The two stalwarts of Dublin society were returning from a short break.
