Cork woman scoops Navan Virtual Summer Ladies Day
On what should have been Summer Ladies Day at Navan Racecourse, the racecourse hosted an online Virtual Ladies Day event in aid of local charities Meath Women's Refuge and Meath River Rescue with a record number of ladies taking part.
Over 80 entries were received to the online event which was hosted on Navan Racecourses Instagram page. This included both national and international entries with entries from as far as the USA and Australia, and entrants were required to donate a minimum of €5 to one of the chosen charities in order to take part. Judges Mike McCarthy and Paul Carroll of Funky Fashion Frolics had the difficult decision of choosing the winner.
Alex Butler, from Midleton Co. Cork was crowned the winner and she wore a Vintage Alfred Shaheen pink coat from Daisy Blue in Cork City, jumpsuit by Peace and Love and hat by Galway designer Michelle Kearns. Alex won an array of prizes from sponsors Siobhan Daly Designs, Cotton Threadz, Ballykeefe Distillery and Revolution Make Up Ireland. Alex will also receive a VIP trip to the 2021 Navan Summer Ladies Day set to take place next June.
Judges Paul and Mike commented: “So many ladies showed their style virtually through photo and video and we couldn’t have been prouder to be involved given the great response towards donating to both local charities”.
Kate O’Sullivan, Marketing Manager of Navan Racecourse said: “We appreciate a lot of people are stuck at home during the current pandemic and so wanted to give our followers something to look forward to and get involved in. Ladies Days are always extremely popular and we were blown away by the response to the online event.”
