Forever in Blue Jeans


One of fashion’s most iconic and versatile pieces of clothing – denim – was celebrated in style at Listowel Races this afternoon (Monday 18th September) with the return of the ‘Forever in Blue Jeans’ competition!

It was generously sponsored again by O’Connor’s Hardware & Farm Supplies and judged this year by top model and actor, Timmy Dowd. The overall winner in the male category was Paul Scanlon and the overall winner in the female category was Shauna Russell. Each received a cheque for €200.

For the dedicated followers of fashion, there are still 3 more super stylish events to go! Men get the chance to strut their stuff on Thursday at the Ryles Menswear Best Dressed Man, Friday is the McElligotts Kia Ladies Day with a trip for New York for the best dressed and the closing day features Sustainable Style Saturday sponsored by Listowel Tidy Towns and an Taisce.  Tickets for Listowel Harvest Racing Festival can be purchased online or at turnstiles on the day for €25 Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday, with a 20% discount for groups of 20 or more.
