A venue as magnificent as Lutrellstown Castle demands high-octane glamour, and the ladies who came together to support Pieta House did not disappoint. The luncheon, which the organisation committee hopes will become an annual occasion, was attended by 180 guests. A champagne reception was held pre-dinner before guests sat down to a three-course lunch of warm goat's cheese tartlet, salmon and lemon tart. An auction and raffle both helped to raise a total of €11,000 for Pieta House, a centre for the prevention of self-harm or suicide which hopes to one day have a centre within 100km of everyone in Ireland.
