Model student Aisling takes break from books for night on town with mum Gillian at Bollywood-style party

MODEL Aisling Quinn took a break from her studies over the weekend as she enjoyed a night out with her mum.

The daughter of Irish soccer legend Niall Quinn and her glamourous mum Gillian let their hair down at a Bollywood style bash at Dublin restaurant Indie Dhaba.

Despite deciding to take a short-break from her modelling career to concen-trate on her studies, the 18-year-old was looking far from stressed as she wowed in a deep purple body-con dress teamed with nude heels.

Mum and daughter are used to sharing the limelight as both are signed with Andrea Roche Model Agency. However, Gillian recently told The Diary that while her daughter has taken a step back from modelling, she is still enjoying working on photoshoots as well as juggling her passion for pilates and horse riding.

The pair were just two of the names on the star-studded guest list who enjoyed the new Indian fine dining experience, the first of its kind in Ireland.

RTE presenter Kathryn Thomas also had a ball at the Indian haunt on Friday ahead of her appearance on the red carpet at Saturday night's IFTAs.

Other guests at the restaurant over the weekend, which opened just two months ago, included artist Guggi, singer Brian Kennedy and model Gail Kaneswaren.
