It’s been the site of many a debs and wedding over the years so it was only fitting that Ballyroe Heights Hotel played host to a fundraising ‘Debs & Evening wear’ fashion show on Sunday afternoon.

Organised by the Kerry Wedding Store, the event was in aid of both the Tralee Parnells Hurling & Camogie Club and the Tralee Autism Friendly group.

The show saw models – who were made up of students from secondary schools right across Tralee – donning the finest garb that the ‘Kerry Wedding Store’ and ‘Tuxedo’ had to offer and all after guests had enjoyed a red carpet and drinks reception on arrival to whet their appetite for the night of high fashion that awaited.

Speaking to The Kerryman, Sinéad McCarthy from the Kerry Wedding Store called the evening a great success and said that the two charities were very worthy causes to raise money for.

"Everyone really enjoyed it. The models were secondary school students and we had three adult models as well. My own daughter too, she’s 12, she modelled a couple of dresses for her own age group. 'Tuxedo' then had 12 models too for their own clothes and they were mixed again between school going and mature,” Sinéad said.

"My husband coaches the U12’s and the U14’s in the Parnells and our two daughters are part of the club and they absolutely love it. It’s just such a great local club and a great place for kids to get involved in sport and they very inclusive as well so this was our own way of helping out with their fundraising,” she continued.

"Then, with Tralee Autism Friendly, the work they do to raise awareness locally of autism is great and they are a small group so they need all the support they can get,” she finished.
