Caitríona Perry

RTÉ Six One anchor Caitríona Perry has had a hectic few years, but she takes it all in her stride. She spoke to Klara Heron about the importance of being passionate about what you do, the legacy of her late colleague Keelin Shanley and keeping her family out of the public eye.

The Sustainable Christmas Gift Guide

Show your loved ones that you care about them and the environment with our guide to sustainably-made gifts. With lots of Irish-made, local ideas, you will find the perfect gift idea for everyone in your life.


Merry and bright

We have three handy recipes to have on standby this festive season from top chefs Rachel Allen, Mary Berry and Nigel Slater. Ciara Leahy meets the man synonymous with spiced beef in Cork’s English Market, and she also shares her guide to best Champagnes to enjoy this Christmas.  Plus in interiors, we have a guide to Christmas decorations from Irish-owned businesses that you will adore year after year.

In December, we love to dress up at home as well as on nights out, so in this issue’s fashion shoot we have fun party looks that will work with stilettos or slippers this festive season. Ruth O’Connor shares a gift guide for style lovers with picks to suit all budgets, and Sinead Keary gives an inside look at her eponymous label of wardrobe essentials.
