The Mary from Dungloe Festival had a fashion show with a difference last night as some unexpected models stepped out in the bridal showcase.

Rather than the Marys walking the catwalk in wedding gowns – the task was given to the boys instead, and they definitely worked the room in style.

Six brave men strutted through the room with some excellent poses and sent the crowd into a frenzy with their dancing.

The Mary from Dungloe International Festival fashion show at The Waterfront Hotel Dungloe showcased the latest trends of 2017 and ended with a big celebratory finale with the Marys and male models.
