YOU would have been for­given for think­ing that you had taken a step back in time af­ter pass­ing through the doors of Treacy’s D-Bar re­cently as they re­turned to the roar­ing twen­ties with The Great Gatsby night.

The evening was a fundraiser for this year’s Straw­berry Fair and saw the red carpet rolled out at the Chicago-style speakeasy for all kinds of gang­sters and molls.

It was quite ev­i­dent that a con­sid­er­able ef­fort went into the cos­tumes which were on dis­play on the night, feather boas, pearls, tril­bies and spats be­ing the or­der of the day. On ar­rival, guests were treated to some de­li­cious gin cock­tails and re­ally adding to the evening was the en­ter­tain­ment from lo­cal jazz he­roes Ain’t Mis­be­havin’ who played up a storm.

The event was the brain­child of Maria Nolan and Roisin Wil­liams and they were de­lighted with the level of en­thu­si­asm for the event from those in at­ten­dance. To fin­ish, they had the dif­fi­cult task of pick­ing a ‘ best dressed cou­ple’ and the prize of a two night stay in any of the Treacy’s Ho­tels went to Chris­tine and Jimmy Red­ding­ton. The or­gan­is­ers thanked ev­ery­one who got in­volved in mak­ing the event a suc­cess, par­tic­u­larly Treacy’s Ho­tel for host­ing.

Clare Red­mond, Nancy Dun­phy, Lor­raine Wal­ton, Sharon Mor­ris­sey and Maria Wil­liams.
