Grainne Seoige might have a determinedly lower profile in recent years, but you're guaranteed a sighting at the Galway Races.

The 43-year-old tv presenter turned jewellery designer was pictured at the Galway Races on Tuesday and turned heads in a black crepe midi dress from Reiss and metallic gold court shoes; finishing off her look with a striking sinamay wide brimmed hat with hot pink floral detail by Tuam designer Caithriona King.

After the races, she headed to the Loughrea Hotel for its best dressed competition, offering top style tips on securing the ultimate Ladies Day prize on Thursday.

Yesterday's event marked the precursor for the busiest day of the week - Ladies Day - on Thursday. Also spotted soaking up the atmosphere was Miriam O'Callaghan, who was named RTE's highest paid female earner, in an off the shoulder pleated dress and sports news presenter Evanne Ní Chuilinn in a grey jumpsuit.

Former Rose of Tralee Maria Walsh opted for a sheer lilac panelled dress.

Unsurprisingly, there has been an increase in security checks for the thousands of people attending the races this year and racegoers are splashing the cash more than ever as corporate suites have been booked out for months and the champagne tent has been a bustling epicentre of activity.
