Milliner, Aoife Hannon exudes style everywhere she goes. This outfit by Orla O’Connor and Aoife Hannon would win Best Dressed Lady prize for me any day.

Like Mother:  Like daughter.  Style is in the genes.

Fashion designer, Orla O’Connor with her very stylish mother, Joan.

Imelda Murphy and her daughter at Saturday’s Races.



These are just a few examples of some of the very varied head wear on display on Friday.

Mary Houlihan, who won the prize for the Best Dressed Lady, posed for a photo with the Listowel born milliner who made the hat to accompany the winning outfit. The milliner is Maria Stack. Maria was having a brilliant week of it. I spotted her in the winners’ enclosure with winning horse, AskVic on Saturday.


Back to the hats….


Part of the pleasure of racing is meeting up with friends and socializing. This year we had the perfect weather for it. Nobody wanted to stay indoors. Here are a few of the many people I met on the racecourse.
