Research has shown that in tough times ladies enjoy that little extra bit of tender care and pampering .
This fact was certainly borne out on Sunday last in the Abbey Hotel in Donegal Town when over 400 ladies descended on the hotel for the ‘Ultimate Ladies Day Out’.
The event was organised by the ladies of Four Masters GAA club as a fundraiser for the Donegal Town club and for breast cancer. It was a tremendous success.
From early morning the ladies and indeed the gents of Four Masters were busy converting the ballroom of the hotel and Sky Night Club into a one stop centre for everything a lady could desire - including a waxing table which we will address later!
The main ballroom was a hub of activity with pop up hairdressing salons, beauty and massage therapists, health and beauty outlets, make-overs by the Beenababes, teeth whitening and a great selection of make up. Downstairs, Sky night club had been converted to a complete spa with soothing massages, make up treatments.Throughout the afternoon there were lectures on well-being, healing and an ongoing fashion show, all of which was nicely knitted together by sports journalist and commentator Sean Perry.
The climax of the evening came when a number of brave young(?) men (including this writer) volunteered to walk the ramp in their shorts with the highest vote catchers getting waxed in aid of breast cancer. I will confess I am now trying to figure out what to do with my other unshaven leg!
