Athlone native, Paula Gannon, had an Easter weekend to remember when she was awarded the ‘Most Stylish Lady’ at the Boylesports Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse Racecourse.
Paula beat a contingent of Ireland’s most stylish ladies and ultimately walked away with the sought after title of ‘The Dunboyne Castle Most Stylish Lady’, which was announced in front of a huge crowd in the parade ring on Easter Monday.
The judging panel, including singer-songwriter, Una Healy, executive producer of Xpose, Debbie O’Donnell, and Gráinne Ross, managing director of Dunboyne Castle, chose the most stylish lady based on her interpretation of this year’s theme, Country Chic. Paula wore floral suit from Hobbs, she handmade her headpiece, her shoes were from Dunnes Stores, to which she added accessories and her bag was from Coast.
Paula’s prize includes an overnight stay in Dunboyne Castle Hotel and Spa with dinner, then a private transfer to Dublin Airport, where the winner will enjoy the on-demand luxury services of Platinum Services, including their very own private suite, access to full bar and menu options, shower facilities and more. Paula will then be whisked away for four nights to the luxurious Bobby Hotel in Nashville.
Commenting on the Dunboyne Castle Most Stylish Lady, Una Healy commented, “the judges and I had a really difficult decision choosing from the final ten ladies. The standard of style today was really high and the good weather brought out some great colour and headpieces, which was great to see. It was a unanimous decision from me and my fellow judges, Grainne and Debbie, as Paula’s style really stood out for its elegance, colour palette and her accessories.”
