Irish bloggers took centre stage at a recent celebration of the finest talent to emerge from Co Limerick.

The city's gliterrati descended on the Strand Hotel for the '40 Under 40' Awards, an occasion which described itself as "celebrating the extraordinary Limerick people" with a black tie event.

Influencer Louise Cooney was among the guests of honour, who turned heads in an asymmetric cut-out gown with dramatic arm draping by Australian designer Alex Perry. She attended with her parents Tony and Grainne, who beamed as they posed for a picture after she was honoured with an award.

Model Shauna Lindsay, who now lives in Dublin, attended with her mother Patricia and later posed for pictures with radio presenter JJ Hartigan, whom she dated for two years in 2013.
