Pippa makes the most of bank holiday with son Ollie at the beach
The sun was shining yesterday and model mum Pippa O'Connor made the most of it by spending the day at the beach with her young son Ollie.
Posting a picture with her two-year-old, she wrote: "Chipper chips and fresh air. Love Bank Holidays".
The model turned entrepeneur, who runs pippa.ie and her 'Fashion Factories' days out was relaxing after a busy weekend.
She spent Saturday afternoon in Merrion Square at the Cadbury Easter Egg Trail in aid of children's charity, Barnardos.
That evening she was interviewed on the Saturday Night Show and she wrote on her site that she was nervous about going on the show.
"I was looking forward to going on but I felt a little nervous too - probably because I was apprehensive about being asked about my mum," she said. He mum Louise Mullen sadly passed away in October.
But she was pleased with how the show went.
"The feedback online was so lovely - I feel very lucky that people take the time to write to me. I love reading all the comments and I'm so grateful that people are always so nice towards me."
