Donegal’s first BE YOU event is taking place this March and is set to be a wonderful day out with a difference.

This health, wellness, fashion and beauty event places a special focus on self-care, overcoming challenges and feeling good. Talks will feature some of Donegal’s most inspirational women.

The event, which gained roots on the west coast, will be brought to Donegal by Megan Durkan from Mayo – Makeup with Megan D.

It takes place in the Central Hotel Donegal Town on Sunday 29th March from 2.30pm. Tickets would be a great Mother’s Day gift idea.

Here, Megan gives us a flavour of the fabulous plans for BE YOU:

As a makeup artist, busy mum and woman in her thirties, I am always on the go rarely having time for myself, most women I meet no matter what age are facing the same battles. We are the last on our lists and look after everyone else first.

When my Mum died three years ago I had to start from scratch, as a young single mother, we were super close all my life, we were our own partnership and as it happens ended up being in partnership in business years later. When she got sick my whole world changed after she passed away. I was different, I wasn’t the same person anymore and I needed to come to terms with that. 

I meet women everyday of the week in similar circumstances, we chat, compare and really just vent… 

This has given me a passion to help others and help other women find out who they really are and embrace it….
