Vintage Miley's onscreen daughter

'IT was the first time I'd seen Mick Lally in 10 years -- and the last," says Blathnaid Treacy of her onscreen father Miley in Glenroe, when she saw the actor in the Tivoli's The Matchmaker in 2010.

Treacy is the new face of the Red Pepper production's O Tholg go Tolg for TG4 -- where she travels the world couch surfing.

"It was the best experience of my life," she says emphatically.

Blathnaid is a lover of vintage clothes and is a devotee of The Goddess Room in Greystones, Co Wicklow.

The vintage atelier is taking part in the fashion show to be held on March 30 as part of the National Maternity Hospital Foundation's fundraising drive for projects such as an MRI scanner and an upgrade of the neonatal unit for the hospital.

"We will be hosting 500 guests in the National Gallery," said the new Master of Holles St, Dr Rhona Mahony.
