Not one to rest on her laurels, she and her husband John are also building their dream home in county Clare.

3. What to wear now

Stylist Corina Gaffey demonstrates how to wear the trends of the season, whether you just want to nod to the look or take it full throttle.

4. Be inspired

As always the magazine is packed with features to pore over. Look abroad to learn more about the wellness practices and traditions of other cultures and learn how to introduce them into your own life. Our Community feature on the inspiring Galz Gone Wild, a hiking group led by women for women, will inspire you to rediscover a love of nature and to challenge your mind and body. We also have interviews on pioneering women, such as a Galway scientist who is determined to improve the lives of Parkinson’s patients, and a feature on Finn Ni Fhaolain and how she established her zero-waste, gluten free bakery in Donegal.
