Stylish Longford ladies sparkle at Galway Races

Oniesa Owens from Granard was runner-up in the g Hotel Best Dressed event at Galway Races today and she was also the winner of the coveted Best Hat prize.

There was glitz and glamour galore at the Galway Races last week, with Longford ladies - including our Longford Rose - dressing to impress at the annual festival last Thursday.

Oniesa Owens was one such Longford lady, who was chosen as one of the top ten best-dressed ladies and also the winner of the Best Hat competition.

The headpiece in question was created by Cavan milliner Davina Lynch and really stood out from the crowd.

Oniesa won €2,000, in addition to a two night stay at the g Hotel, a spa gift hamper from the hotel's ESPA, a champagne afternoon tea and a €100 voucher for Yourells Salon.

And she wasn't the only Longford beauty to impress the judges at Lady's Day last week, with Legan girl, Kaela Keegan also making it to the top ten best dressed.

Kaela wore a beautiful dress from the brand Self Portrait and headpiece was from Sarah Stephens at the Hat Society, Dundrum, Dublin.

She was delighted to win a goodie bad from the g Hotel and has every intention of returning to the Galway Races for Ladies Day next year.

Longford Rose, Laura Ward also stepped out in style at Ballybrit racecourse last week.
