These poor girleens fell in to a giant toilet trying to promote Ballygown Pink, so the least you lot can do is buy a couple of bottles to support Think Pink Week! The Marie Keating Foundation’s breast cancer awareness initiative is being celebrated this week and lots of Irish celebs have got on board to ‘Be part of it’.

The night usually starts out like this……..

“The search for true love begins outside the box…”

There’s a great pub in Kilkenny called Billy Byrne’s on John St. that shows foreign/indie/arthouse (random) films every Wednesday night. Last week was the turn of ‘Lars and the Real Girl’ starring Mr Chin, Ryan Gosling.

To say this is now one of my all time favourite movies would be to do it a disservice. I almost don’t want to write anything more on it, because due to the tiredness of my brain, I can’t think of enough brilliant words to put together all in a row that would in any way adequately profess my love for this film. 

…but I’ll give it a go - Set in a rural American town, Ryan Gosling (”It wasn’t over..it STILL isn’t over!”) plays Lars, a 27 year old recluse who was abandoned and abuse as a child.

Kate Moss’ celebrated her 35th Birthday party this weekend…all weekend. Festivities kicked off at London’s Dorchester hotel on Thursday and migrated to her North London home where she held an uber-exclusive  medieval themed get together for celebrity friends and rocker boyfriend Jamie Hince .

Rather predictably, little piggy up there wasn’t the only casualty on the night with an ambulance being called in the early hours to look after this wrecked looking chap.

The Police were also a regular presence outside the model’s door as they received a large number of complaints from Kate’s neighbours about the noise which went on until the following day.
