21 pictures of TDs and Senators taking part in a fashion show

A hat shaped like a flower, an illuminous golfer and a Minister’s strut. The Shelbourne Hotel had it all last night.

A GROUP OF TDs and Senators gathered in the Shelbourne Hotel last night.

Nothing new there, you might think. However last night was different. Very different.

The politicians had come together to host a charity fashion show in aid of Motor Neuron Disease. The results were spectacular.

Michelle Mulherin’s massive hat, Richard Bruton’s strut and Eamon Coughlan’s sexy golfer pose are just some of the highlights.
