Letter from the Editor

Welcome!

Kim Kelly
Managing Editor

You get to meet a lot of fascinating people as the editor of a magazine - but sometimes the most interesting people are closest to home.

This month I was delighted to meet a very special teenager, Amy-Louise McKeever from Crossmaglen.

Amy-Louise agreed to be our cover girl and talk to us about what it’s like to have Alopecia.

The 19 year-old lost her hair three years ago but, with the support of her loving mum Michelle and hair loss specialist, hairdresser Bridgeen King, she has found a self-confidence and resilience within herself that she never knew was there.

Amy-Louise wants to let everyone see just what it is like to have no hair and she hopes to help other people who are going through similar experiences.

Hair loss, for a variety of reasons, is a massive problem these days and it is lovely to see Amy-Louise proudly showing off her beauty and letting the world know that she is ok.

Also in this month’s magazine, alongside our usual mix of local social events and fashion, it’s the last chance for you to enter the Firmus Energy/Local Women Awards.

We want as many of you as possible to enter these awards and get the recognition you deserve. This year everyone’s favourite local woman May McFettridge will host our gala event on April 13 at the Europa Hotel – so get entering!

Until next month,

Kim Kelly, Editor
