The annual Breast Cancer Research Pink Afternoon at The Lodge at Ashford Castle takes place on Friday, June 16th at 12pm. The hugely popular event overlooking Lisloughrey Quay is the perfect way to connect with the important women in your life while supporting Breast Cancer Research (formerly NBCRI).

The afternoon will begin with a sparkling drinks reception followed by a three-course lunch with guest speaker Dr. Orla Smithwick. We will also have a fundraising auction hosted by Ollie Turner and live music afterwards.

A milliner showcase will feature headpieces by Majella Dalton of Crevation Design, Gillian Duggan Designs, Brid O’Driscoll Millinery, Mary White Millinery and Andrea Tighe of Tí Tighe. There will also be a “Milliner’s Choice” Competition on the day – each milliner will select a lady of their choice and the winner will receive a once off head piece, just in time for the Galway Races.

The Pink Afternoon has been a sell-out success for the past few years so get your tickets before it’s too late
