Carlha Linners, Aoife Walsh and Kate Moloney took advantage of the sunshine in the west, as they gave us a preview of the latest in racing fashion this week.

The model beauties were joined by social media star and MC James Patrice for the launch of Galway’s 4* Galmont Hotel & Spa’s programme of activity for this year’s horse racing festival.

The models showed off creations from Lady Galago Boutique in Galway, with headpieces from Milliners Michelle Kearns, Michael Mullins and Caithriona King.

The Galmont Hotel & Spa, formerly the Radisson Blu, is paying homage to the famous fashion and style of the festival’s female friends by going in search of the ultimate #GalwayGirlSquad.

Fashionable ladies, along with two friends, will be invited to partake and be in with a change to each win 2 nights B&B, an exclusive dining experience, and indulgent spa treatments.

Furthermore, the winning squad will also receive an exclusive Galway Ladies Day package to include a Moët champagne lunch at The Galmont Hotel & Spa, tickets to the track, and a reserved table in the Moët champagne tent.

Of course, the always stylish James Patrice and his sister Vanessa Butler will be on hand to pick their odds-on favourite girl squads, and choose the overall winners.
