Kerry cancer support charity celebrates St Brigid’s Day with empowering fashion event

A stunning fashion event led by two of Kerry’s most renowned fashion designers is set to kick off St Brigid’s Day celebrations in the Kingdom on Thursday, February 1st
Being billed as the fashion highlight of 2024 in Kerry, Don O’Neill and Colin Horgan will take centre stage at Killarney’s INEC Arena for Recovery Haven Kerry’s Designer Fashion Showcase, which will incorporate the spirit of this extraordinary Irish saint on her 1500th anniversary.
Colin Horgan will be the star attraction of the event, showcasing a number of pieces from his expansive collection, while beloved Ballyheigue designer Don O’Neill - the charity’s newly appointed Patron - will showcase a select few pieces from his fashion archive. 
Don explained that hosting the event taking on the auspicious 1500th anniversary of St Brigid’s Day is a wonderful way to celebrate this extraordinary saint and all she achieved during her remarkable lifetime. 
“Brigid is a role model for the ages, inspiring us with her compassion, her hospitality, her generosity, her skills as a healer and a teacher, her wisdom, her respect for our life giving planet and living in harmony with mother nature - a peacemaker and diplomat, a model of equality recognizing and treating women and men as equals, as she inspired generations to emulate her and follow in her footsteps,” Don said. 
“It is with this spirit of empowerment and community we will endeavour to empower each other at the INEC on February 1st, as we celebrate St. Brigid with inspiring song, fashion and conversation, as we raise much need funds for Recovery Haven Kerry. Colin and I have dedicated our careers to empowering women through our designs and are thrilled to be part of this event.” 
The event will be MC’d by legendary RTE broadcaster, Mary Kennedy, who will also facilitate an exclusive Q&A session with both designers, while event producer, Norma O’Donoghue, has also secured some of the country’s top designers and local boutiques to feature, including Catriona Hanley, Marion Murphy Cooney, Tina Griffin, Frances Fogarty, Cathy Troth, Carol Kennelly, MacBees, Scarlet, the Strand House and Jasmine.
Renowned social media influencer Helen Murphy, aka daily_divadiary, will be a special guest and has been given the unenviable task of choosing the best dressed lady– with a fantastic prize package worth hundreds of euro up for grabs for the winner.
Kicking off with a Prosecco and wine reception at 7pm, other highlights will include special guest entertainment from the stunning O’Neill sisters; a bumper raffle and an after-party at the Gleneagle’s Backstage Bar.
Tickets are priced at €30 and are available now from Recovery Haven, the INEC Box Office and on Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/763345877067?aff=oddtdtcreator- 
And for those wishing to attend as a group, a selection of group discount offers are available, by contacting Recovery Haven directly. 
Management at The Gleneagle Hotel, meanwhile, are offering a discounted overnight package for the event, priced at €125 per room B&B (quote Recovery Haven).
