Launch of First Furlong 2017 Millinery Showcase

Launch of First Furlong 2017

I am delighted to have been part of the First Furlong Event for the past 5 years.  This event gives me the opportunity to showcase my Millinery designs at a special event where each of us Galway Millinery can highlight our unique hats.  It is no secret that Galway is the capital of Millinery and at First Furlong you will see ample evidence of this with every lady wearing a hat on the day in a bid to secure the 'Raciest Lady' prize!!  The launch was in the beautiful gardens of the Ardilaun Hotel in glorious sunshine.

My continued support of the Breast Cancer Research is also a very important to me.  As one of my chosen charities to support through my work as a Milliner.
