THE prosecco flowed as the ladies lunched over a course of bril­liant fash­ion at the Bal­ly­ma­cel­ligot GAA Ladies Club fundraiser on Sun­day.

An af­ter­noon of fun, fash­ion and mu­sic brought ‘em out in force and style to raise €5k for the de­vel­op­ment of the Bal­ly­mac GAA Ladies Club.

Com­menc­ing at 2pm with a prosecco re­cep­tion fol­lowed by a three-course meal with wine, the ladies weren’t long get­ting to their feet to dance in a great warm-up to the catwalk show.

Club mem­bers mod­elled the lat­est autumn trends from bou­tiques in Castleis­land.

Ra­dio Kerry’s Alan Finn was MC for the event and to the great in­ter­est of all at­ten­dees, he in­ter­viewed spe­cial guests, Ai­dan O’Ma­hony and wife Denise Healy in which they di­vulged their health and life­style tips.

Denise was also given the al­most im­pos­si­ble task of pick­ing a best dressed on the day, but the de­serv­ing win­ner was Mary O’Car­roll from Kil­moy­ley, who works as a pub­lic health nurse in Tralee.

The high heels were fab­u­lous but there was a time for them to come off as the ladies’ lunch ended with all danc­ing the evening away to the mu­sic of lo­cal band Mid­night Café.

Teresa Walker of Bal­ly­mac who helped or­gan­ise the event said it was a fan­tas­tic day and thanked ev­ery­one who sup­ported.
