This year will see Marietta Doran visit Newry as the guest speaker for the Annual Hospice Ladies Lunch which takes place in the Canal Court Hotel on Thursday 24th May. Marietta’s energetic personality, combined with her expertise and innate sense of fashion have led to her carving out a highly successful television career in Ireland and in the UK. She is the foremost commentator on fashion at all the glamorous meetings in the horseracing calendar and is well known to TV viewers as the resident fashion presenter on RTE Racing and Channel 4 Racing. In the late nineties Marietta travelled to New Zealand. Her avant-garde creativity was so recognised there that many visiting international entertainers such as Eddie Izzard and Billy Connolly invited her to style them for their shows. On her return to Ireland, Marietta became an accredited buyer at International Fashion Week in London. For half a decade she was a regular contributor to the RTE primetime fashion programme ‘Off The Rails’ where her style and expertise proved a huge hit with viewers, and gained her a loyal fan base. The Hospice Ladies Lunch will commence at 12.00 noon with a bucks fizz drinks reception where you will have the chance to catch up with old friends, business colleagues and of course meet new people! Following the reception you will be guided through to the Miller Suite for Lunch, a Grand Prize Draw and a collection of fashion from our shops. Finally you will have the chance to listen to Marietta. Fiona Stephens, Corporate Fundraiser for Southern Area Hospice said, “We would like to sincerely thank the Canal Court Hotel for their on-going support for the occasion and indeed to all the ladies who support the lunch every year. We are looking forward to welcoming women from right across the southern region especially those who have never been to the lunch before. It is a great social occasion and the perfect event to catch up with friends new and old while supporting a very worthy cause.” Tickets for the Ladies Lunch are now available priced at just £25 per person. To book your ticket contact Fiona or Denise on 028 302 51333 or email Sincere thanks once again to the Canal Court Hotel for their support.
