SINCE its inception back in 2005, The Mayo News/O’Neills Club Stars awards has developed a reputation for being a stylish, slick and really enjoyable event — as well as being a great night out!
And on Friday week next, January 19, those of us involved in organising the 13th annual Club Stars charity awards will once again be inviting guests to dress to impress when they arrive at Knockranny House Hotel!
The Club Stars awards recognises those volunteers, players and coaches who give so much to the GAA in Mayo, and have done over for decades.
But this year The Mayo News will also be recognising those who hit the high notes in the style stakes, as we’ll be choosing our ‘Best Dressed’ gent and lady on the night — with a prize up for grabs for the winner in each category.
Make-up artist Hayley Coleman, who’s also well-known as a fashion influencer on social media, will be judging the ladies ‘Best Dressed’ competition, along with a male ‘mystery’ judge who will select the sharpest-looking gent.
“I’ll be going for something that’s eye-catching, edgy and thoughtfully put together,” explained Hayley when asked what she will be looking for.
So whether it’s floor length, a cocktail dress, a jumpsuit or a two-piece, the Club Stars awards are always a chance for WAGs, other halves, mothers, sisters, cousins and aunties to get glammed up and celebrate.
“For the men, a quirky sense of style could do it for you,” says Hayley. “Maybe a skinny tie, an eye-catching bow tie, a three piece-suit or sports/casual, the lads will need something to make them stand out from the crowd to catch the judge’s eye.”
A huge amount of of work is going on in the background at the moment to ensure that this year’s Club Stars awards are going to be even bigger and better than ever before.
Our charity partner is Enable Ireland, Mayo Services with all the monies raised on the night going towards supporting children and adults with disabilities in Mayo.
All the funds gathered will stay in Mayo and support services such as Occupational Therapy and Speech and Language Therapy for service users.
