Bollinger Best Dressed Lady of the day is Helen Murphy from Clare originally but living in Douglas, Co. Cork. The stunning secondary school teacher and proud mother of four was enjoying a day away from the classroom at Punchestown. Judges Blathnaid Treacy and Sybil Mulcahy were unanimous in their decision when they deemed Helen today’s Bollinger Best Dressed Lady Competition. She wore a Michelle Kearns Headpiece and Siobhan Daly necklace which really set off her Niamh O’Neill Dress beautifully. She teamed her core outfit with a Marks and Spencer Coat, Faith shoes and Olga Berry bag. Helen automatically is a finalist in tomorrow’s Bollinger Best Dressed Lady Competition.
