Galway Race Week is finally here – but things are still a little different from our usual Summer Festival Season.

We may not be able to make it out to Ballybrit but that is not going to stop the ladies of Ireland from blowing the cobwebs off their beautiful outfits and get race ready.

‘Racing for Rosabel’ Virtual Best Dressed in aid of Rosabel’s Rooms is back for its fourth year, taking place on Wednesday 28 July, with entries being accepted throughout the day.

Style enthusiasts, both gals and guys, will have the opportunity to win some amazing prizes valued at €5,000.

Best dressed lady herself Fiona Morgan Coleman and top makeup artist Ally Mc Ginn along with one of Galway Race week’s most popular milliners Gillian Duggan will be judging all the style.

Organiser of the event Caroline Downey, of Carried Away PR & Events said that they couldn’t be happier to be part of this fabulous event again.

“Due to covid restrictions we have had to put the event on the back burner again however fashionista’s still get the chance to dress up, enter the competition and enjoy Galway Race week while supporting Rosabel’s Rooms,” said Caroline.

Fiona Morgan Coleman, Best Dressed judge said: “I am so looking forward to this. I love Galway Race week and of course I can’t wait to see all the style again.
