Bohemians –v- Cork City    7:45

Bohemians host title chasing Cork City at Dalymount Park.

Having not played since the 1-1 with St Patrick’s Athletic on July 13, Bohemians will be looking to get one over on their in-form opponents. Currently in seventh position, the Dublin side will be relatively pleased with their current form but will look to move up the table to as high as sixth by the weekend’s close.

Goals from Billy Dennehy and Mark O’Sullivan gave Cork City a 2-1 win against UCD last week. That win wasn’t enough to put them top as they sit second in the league on goal difference. The leesiders will be out for another three points in order to put pressure on league leaders Dundalk, anything but a win and significant momentum could be lost.

Prediction: Away win Continue reading

Failing Eyesight Helps Irish Woman Spearhead Vintage Fashion Range

vintadefinita

When it comes to beautiful clothing, exquisite style and excellent quality are perfect partners.  And the team at vintage-style clothing label – Vinta Definita – have an innate understanding of this. By adding the finishing touches to their very first collection, the Dublin-based brand has designed the perfect antidote to fast fashion. Their gorgeous capsule collection has been created by drawing inspiration from the grace and style of the 1930, 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s. And each garment has been created – in limited runs and often by hand – using exclusive, high quality fabrics from Italy, France and Spain.  These are luxurious investment pieces that make a strong statement about the women who choose to wear them. “Luxury is a concept with multiple definitions,” says Annushka O’Neill, Creative Director at Vinta Definita. “For us, luxury means beautifully made clothing with an emphasis on exquisite craftsmanship and exclusivity of design. For our customers, luxury is the sense of integrity that comes from sourcing fewer but higher quality garments.” Despite their Irish roots, the fledgling firm has a truly international flavour with their sights firmly set on the stars.  “Our textile designer is English, our pattern maker is Polish, our garments are made in Portugal and the face of our brand – Diana Morozova – is a Russian actress,” says Annushka O’Neill.  And O’Neill commissioned award-winning Russian photographer, Taya Nevskaya, to shoot the brand’s first look book. “Taya’s work has appeared in Cosmopolitan,” says O’Neill, “and that was good enough for us!”.
