The recent Carrigallen Fashion Show raised €3000. The event run by the local Women’s Group will be giving €2000 to Breast Cancer Charity and €1000 to the local carers group.
The Committee includes Dolores Reilly as chairperson, Ann Reilly as secretary, Aine and Kathleen Gray as joint treasurer Patricia Kiernan and Kathleen Mc Cabe PRO. The fashion on the night came from Bonny B and Raval in Carrick-on -Shannon, both boutiques are owned and run by Bernadette Hughes.
Also on the night was United Colours of Benetton, Cavan owned by local lady Helen McCartin and Denim Plus Cavan and it too has local connections with its proprietor being Elizabeth Glancy (nee Doonan) from Carrigallen. Fosters Pharmacy and Pretty Things Shop had their displays in the foyer. There were hats and fasinators designed by our very own local milliner Jennifer Wrynne. These ladies were delighted to be part of our fashion show and gave generously their time help and support to make it a very successful night.
All fashion was modelled by local ladies, some making their debut on the night and all did an absolutely fantastic job.
The main Sponsor on the night was Cllr John McCartin to whom the committee are very grateful. There was many other spot prizes donated by local businesses which were greatly appreciated.
