Image and wardrobe ideas caught the imagination at a special style night in Millstreet that featured colour and style consultant Joan Cashman. The occasion remembered Abina Karen O'Keeffe, her untimely death in 2014 occasioned much sadness amongst family and friends.

As a thank you gesture to the excellent facilities at Marymount Hospice, a special fundraiser incorporating a style night attracted a full house to Millstreet GAA Community Hall.

"We 're thrilled with the response, just fantastic to see a huge attendance, all credit to those who came from many parts to support and a big thanks to the boutiques that participated," said Hannah Crowley, sister of the late Abina Karen.

Special guest Joan Cashman helped patrons kick off the autumn season with her insight on clothing and image tips.

"Everyone wants to look good, both men and women, and looking good is not about buying loads of new clothes, its about knowing what suits you, what suits your colouring, your shape, your lifestyle, personality and budget," she said.

"It's about knowing how to make the best of each item within the limits of a basic wardrobe and appear dressed differently every day, because everyone's wardrobe has to work around their busy lifestyle and this can be learned" said Joan.
