The model agent and TV3 fashion stylist on the loves of her life, with her family coming first.

The person

My husband and my children

The memory

The best of memories and the worst of memories: St Patrick's Day 2005, being grand marshal at the parade in Limerick, and Mother passing away later that day

The moment of the day

Sitting in the garden, listening to the birds, with a nice glass of Muriel Rioja

The song

I Did It My Way by Frank Sinatra

The movie

Gone with the Wind, every time. Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable, you can't beat them

The hero

My beautiful four grandchildren, the loves of my life

The book

Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow: My Life. Sophia Loren's autobiography

The outfit

The dress made for my 60th by my very dear friend, the late John Mac Namara

The accessory

My pearls

The gadget

My iPad mini

The friend

I have been very lucky in my life to have the best friends any human being could ask for

The beauty product

I use the Environ skincare range from Enchant Beauty. I also enjoy Green Angel body care products and Clarins Multi-Protection SPF 50

The holiday

Cote D'Azur, France, and Spanish Point in Co Clare

The piece of advice

A good work ethic, I believe, is everything; and be honourable in business and in life

The drink

A glass of Muriel Rioja

The hotel

There are many fantastic hotels in Limerick that I always enjoy visiting. The Savoy Hotel and Castletroy Park Hotel, and of course the beautiful Adare Manor

The bar

The Cornstore, Cork

The pet hate

Mobile phones behind the scenes at fashion shows

The hobby

The garden

The part of my body

My waist

The celebrity

Helen Mirren and Meryl Streep are the advocates when it comes to ageing gracefully

The virtue

I'm hard-working and down to earth

The vice

I'm unable to say no when it comes to work

The smell

Hermes, my perfume, puts me in good form, brings back wonderful memories and lifts my spirit

The taste

Clonakilty black pudding

The Holman-Lee agency is heading off again to the National Ploughing Championships in Stradbally, Co Laois, this September for a feast of fashion shows on September 22, 23 and 24, see for more details
