The Insider: Launch of Xpose LIVE

Some of our renowned racing stars will be trotting out to Fairyhouse this evening for the official launch of the the Irish Racing Post.

For years, the British edition has long been the bible for punters -- and the new edition is expected to meet with the same success.

To mark the occasion, there's an invite-only bash in the Meath racecourse to coincide with today's races and it will be attended by the likes of Daithi O Se, Nina Carberry, Ted Walsh and Colm O'Rourke, as well as RTE's Colm Murray. The €2m investment will create 25 jobs.

  • Xpose's five reporters were turning on the glam in the Dylan Hotel last night for the launch of Xpose LIVE.

Karen Koster and the gang were out in force to mark the return of the RDS event, which runs from April 9-11 and is now in its second year.

And for the first time, the show will travel to Cork's Silver Springs Hotel from May 14-16 as fans check out all the hottest looks for 2010.

Featuring catwalk shows, top make-up and beauty tips, this year sees VIP packages for the show also on offer, costing from €65 a ticket.

  • Dapper publisher Paul Trainer, of The Dubliner mag, has invited all his pals to join him for a boozy St Patrick's Day eve discussion.

It's being held in the Tripod, on Harcourt Street, and the Scotsman and his learned pals will be holding forth on the topic of What Has Ireland Done For the World, which is really just an excuse for a good old knees-up.

The debate will be followed by a drinks reception hosted by Heineken Ireland, with a handful of tickets on offer from stpatricksfestival.ie
