Hopefully, it will not be the last title Donegal picks up in GAA headquarters this year,” he said. Mr Loughrey was joined at the ceremony by his daughter Lisa, also a director of the company. He dedicated the award to his wife, and Lisa’s mother, Mary, with whom he co-founded the company 35 years ago.Lisa Loughrey paid tribute to their hardworking staff in Crossview House, as well as their loyal customers all over Donegal and the north west.“Without the dedication and professionalism of our staff, this latest award would not have been possible.”Based at Crossview House in Letterkenny, John F Loughrey provides independent advice on a range of services including pensions, investments, savings and deposit and protection.Donegal businessman wins top broker award was last modified: March 28th, 2017 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BrokerdonegalJohn F Loughreylast_img read more

Shuttler PV Sindhu in this black dress deserves all your attention

first_imgPV Sindhu, the first Indian female badminton player to win an Olympic silver medal, is quite the fashionista in her unique way. No, she doesn’t post airport looks or event attires every day, but every time she walks her way to a glittery platform, she adds shine to it.A case in point is the ensemble she was recently spotted in. The Indian badminton queen was honoured at the recent Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year awards, where a cover of the magazine featuring her was also unveiled.Photo: Yogen Shah While Sindhu was clearly the star at this event, what caught our eyes was that black dress. The sequined sheer dress with self stripes was perfect for the evening. The shimmer in the dress added just the right amount of glamour.Also Read: What ace shuttler PV Sindhu does to stay fit might mould your health Also Read: You were going to miss how gorgeous PV Sindhu looks in this shimmery gown Paired with open-toed, black sandals and statement drop-down earrings, the dress accentuated the 22-year-old’s toned body. With barely any makeup on–apart from the maroon lip colour, kohl-lined eyes, and maybe a touch of blush–Sindhu looked like the epitome of summer night perfection in this ensemble.Picture courtesy: Instagram/pvsindhu1 The black nail paint on her fingers and toes might not be clearly visible, but we love this touch of Goth. And while we hope Sindhu continues to win glory for India again and again, we can’t help but wish she’d make more of these very fashionable appearances as well.advertisementlast_img read more
