The second annual Oireachtas Charity Show takes place in the Shelbourne Hotel on November 12, and stylist Marietta Doran has been very persuasive in encouraging politicos “to walk”, as they say in fashion parlance.

When Deputy Nicky McFadden was diagnosed with Motor Neuron Disease in 2012, her Oireachtas friend and colleague Jimmy Deenihan asked Doran to organise a fashion show to generate funds for Motor Neuron Disease research. More than €20,000 was raised last year, and this year’s event, sponsored by Newstalk, hopes to bring in even more.

Read here for more information on those who will be strutting their stuff on the night in support of motor neurone disease research. We really hope you can be there on the night too!! Tickets are €50 each, available from 01-631 3806 or [email protected]

The politicians will be joined by models Rosanna Davison and Roz Purcell.
