Nollaig does the double on the Island

A FINUGE woman with a keen eye for fashion made it two out of two at Listowel Races on Friday, claiming her second Best Dressed title in as many meetings.

Mum of two Nollaig McCarthy McEnery was declared the Chic Boutique Best Dressed Lady at the Listowel Harvest Racing Festival - just moths after walking away with the best dressed title at Listowel's June meeting.

The pretty air hostess caught the attention of judges Daithí O Sé and style icon, Celia Holman Lee, in a lace fitted THEIA dress by Ballyheigue designer, Don O Neill, which she teamed with an electric pink coat by Heidi Higgins from Kerry's Boutique and headpiece piece by top Irish milliner, Aoife Hannon.

For her efforts, won a voucher for €2,000 voucher for Chic boutique, plus €500 in cash, and a limited edition print from artist Olive Stack.

First runner up at Friday's event was Aine McMahon from Listowel, in a beautiful vintage inspired fur and lace ensemble from Jasmine Boutique Tralee, while second runner up was lady in red Suzanna Hennessy from Finuge.

But it wasn't just the ladies who were dressing to impress at this year's meeting. The men folk of the county also went to great effort for Thursday's Moriarty's Best Dressed Man, judged by Kerry Rose Gemma Kavanagh. The winner of the competition was 62-year-old Seamus Friel from Ballybunion, who donated his €1,000 prize to Recovery Haven in Tralee in memory of his wife and mother who both died of cancer. Seamus also received a €200 voucher for Moriarty's Drapery.
