Railway Union Ladies Day

Ladies Day 2012 Railway Union RFC

The second annual Railway Union RFC Ladies’ Day was held on Saturday 17th November and once again was a resounding success with over 100 in attendance. Friends, family and other halves joined the Railway players in the clubhouse where they received champagne upon arrival. Outside on the pitch, the men’s 3rd XV were putting in a fantastic display of rugby, beating Clontarf 34-12 and delighting the crowds on the sidelines.

Meanwhile back inside the Park Avenue clubhouse, top Irish fashion stylist Courtney Smith was casting an eye over the fashion and deciding upon who should win the Best Dressed Awards. After much deliberation, Best Dressed Mother went to Melissa Slevin, winning €200 sponsored by Cleaning Contractors; Best Dressed Male was awarded to Graham Hawkins and he won a set of cufflinks sponsored by Citroen Ireland.

The highly coveted Best Dressed Lady was won by Karen Doolin and she won a hamper of beauty products sponsored by The Loop at Dublin Airport and a test drive for a week in a Citroen DS4, sponsored by Citroen Ireland. A raffle followed with a lengthy list of prizes donated by local businesses in Sandymount – a full list is available on the Railway website (www.railwayunionrfc.com).

The rest of the night kicked off with ‘Railway Does Blind Date’ hosted by Jack Hanratty, and was followed by live music and singing by renowned Dublin musician and Railway Legends member, Fergie Nolan. Once again, another successful day out in Railway and thanks to the Social Committee for its sublime organisation.
