The evening commenced with a fine wines and canapés reception in the summer sunshine outdoors by the falls accompanied by a salon styled fashion show with looks from Hannons of Castleisland, MacBees Killarney, Annburys Tralee and Jasmine Boutique with bespoke headpieces by Cathy Troth.

Guests then moved for the main show within Sheen Falls, which was transformed by creative director Ann Marie O’Leary in an enchanted forest using locally foraged materials.

The best dressed on the evening was Joann Murphy who wore head to toe Irish design including pieces from Joanne Hynes.

She won an overnight stay in an Estate Room in Sheen Falls Lodge with full Irish Breakfast and dinner for 2 in The Falls Restaurant. Each guest also received a gift bag – including a Lancome gift bag sponsored by CH Tralee, Green Angel pure & organic beauty products, an Elemis gift from Sheen Falls Spa, Chi Fit Tea and The Busy Botanist.
