Ain't it funny how time slips away? (Not really - Ed.) Ask Deirdre O'Kane. Last Saturday night the actress picked up an Irish Tatler Woman of the Year award in the film and TV category for her movie Noble. Christina Noble was also at the awards at the Four Seasons.

The next night Deirdre took her daughter Holly to the X Factor where they bumped into Niall Horan of One Direction. "It was like she met Elvis!" Dee told me.

Next Saturday, she is flying over with her husband Stephen Bradley for a fund-raiser in Whelan's in aid of the charity Poppy's Wheels.

"It's my first time to do stand-up for seven years!" she said. Hence my metaphysical musings on the evanescent nature of time. With Karl Spain also performing, it will a hot night on Wexford Street.

Further south, in the Canaries, Anne Doyle didn't care about the heat last weekend.

"The weather looks a bit mixed but the sun is shining in my heart," said the star who jetted out to stay with her pals, the Dennehys.Asked if her boyfriend Dan McGrattan joined her, Anne retorted: "Nope! Dublin needs him."
