Eager fashionistas flocked early to the Galway Races in order to make the most of Ladies Day.

Thousands will descend on Ballybrit today for the biggest day of the week, while stylish Irish women have travelled from around Ireland for an early chance at the lucrative Best Dressed Lady prize, worth €10,000.

This year, judges Aoibhin Garrihy and Baz Ashmawy will help give three prizes - Best Dressed Lady and Best Hat, with the top winner taking home a pampering weekend at the five star g Hotel & Spa, a diamond pendant worth €2,500, a VIP trip to London with flights, accommodation and spending money, an 18ct white gold solitaire diamond pendant worth €2,500 from Hartmann's jewellers and a hair makeover from Yourells Hair Group in Galway.
