Louise is the star of the show at Fairyhouse

Louise Allen from Slane, Co. Meath won the Lyrath Estate Hotel & Spa Summer Ladies competition in a beautiful summery three piece suit which she bought in Tropbelle in Drogheda. A self-confessed bargain hunter, Louise bought her shoes on eBay and her clutch from Topshop. She topped off her floral ensemble with a cerise hat from milliner, Carol Kennelly.

Judge Sybil Mulcahy was looking for the most stylish lady at the County Meath racecourse which featured the Belgrave Stakes race where Ireland’s racing elite and stylish ladies donned their most colourful summer looks in an effort to win this prestigious event and enjoy a getaway to the penthouse suite at Lyrath Estate Hotel & Spa, Kilkenny.

Speaking after the event, Joanna Hannick, Director of Sales and Marketing at Lyrath Estate Hotel said, “It was a fabulous day of style and racing at Fairyhouse Racecourse. All the ladies here today made such an effort and I know that our celebrity judge, Sybil Mulcahy, found it hard to whittle it down to just ten finalists and to one winner. Louise looked absolutely stunning and her floral suit was perfect for a day at the summer races. All at Lyrath Estate Hotel & Spa were delighted to partner with Fairyhouse Racecourse for this event, a great day was had by all!”
