Bumper prizes on offer for winners of three best dressed awards in Galway

Tue, Jul 28, 2015

Glamorous ladies from right across Ireland will be hoping the current spell of dreary weather lifts on Thursday afternoon to reveal some glorious sunshine for the most hotly contested fashion competition in the country.

If there is one certainty this week, it is that the standard of fashion at the Galway Races on Ladies Day will transcend anything that has been seen at a race track so far this year. It is now seen as a major honour to be crowned the queen of style at Galway, meaning the interest in the winner of the biggest off-track prize at Ballybrit is always phenomenal.

This year, the prestigious competition has a new sponsor in the form of the Kilkenny Shop. The company has been promoting Irish design in its shops across the country for more than 52 years. The judging team comprises RTE’s Maura Derrane, Irish Independent fashion editor and Weekend Magazine executive editor Bairbre Power, Image magazine editor Melanie Morris, and owner of Catwalk Model Agency Mandy Maher.
