Irish Daily Mail - YOU - - EDITOR’S LETTER -

Fash­ion trends can be a tricky business. We all want to make sure we’re keep­ing up, so as the sea­sons change, we run out to snap up the lat­est must-have styles, only to be putting them into the char­ity shop bag a few months later, when they’re al­ready past their sell-by-date. We want to help you buck that, well, trend by bring­ing you the hottest looks for this sea­son on page 10, but in a way that will en­sure they’ll last you well after the fash­ion set has moved on. Also in this is­sue, we all know that won­der­ful feel­ing of be­ing in a new re­la­tion­ship, which can of­ten lead us to overlook things that per­haps we should be pay­ing more at­ten­tion to. On page 26, mar­i­tal ther­a­pist Dr An­drew G Mar­shall tells us some of the warn­ing signs we shouldn’t dis­miss, no mat­ter how clouded our think­ing is by that first flush of ro­mance. Then we hear from the won­der­ful Miche­line Sheehy Sk­eff­in­g­ton on page 30, who is re­trac­ing her grand­mother Hanna’s steps through the US, where Hanna was among the most in­flu­en­tial and im­por­tant peo­ple in Ire­land’s strug­gle for in­de­pen­dence. Miche­line has be­come quite the cru­sader her­self, though it is sad to think that she’s still fight­ing for the same rights for women that her grand­mother fought for 100 years ago.
