Karen was hand-picked by Suzanne, Caroline and Eamonn for her elegant dress and the overall finish of her chosen look.
The crowned 2014 winner not only won a €5000 Marshes Shopping Spree, Karen also took home a bespoke hat courtesy of Millnery-by Mairead (www.facebook.com/mairead.traynor.9).
Suzanne Jackson of www.sosueme.ie said: ‘Karen upped the fashion stakes this Ladies Day. All bets were off, when I spotted her amazing ensemble. A true thoroughbred fashionista…’
Emma Meehan, Marketing Manager of Dundalk Stadium said: “Dundalk Stadium were once again, delighted to have Marshes on board sponsoring Ladies Day for the seventh year running. Lady luck was with us on the day; with a fantastic crowd and all in high spirits.”
