I’ve been up in Donegal quite a bit recently and I loved it. I really love it up here.” Four fashion shows from Chiq Maternity, The Gray Rooms, Pure Boutique, Verve Donegal Town provided many Christmas party dress ideas. Around 500 women turned out for the excellent cause, and organiser Louise Patton and compere Paddy McMenamin were delighted to see so many supportive women having a good time.Caolan Melaugh will be turning two this weekend.
