Aisling jets in for Dome fashion show

TV3 star Aisling O'Loughlin has decided to drop her complaint to gardai over a vicious online Facebook campaign -- after the page was removed from the internet last week.

Aisling has just returned from a holiday to Paris, where she was attending a close friend's wedding, and said that she was delighted to hear from a pal that the page had been taken offline.

The entertainment reporter told the Diary how she is now concentrating on putting the hurtful episode behind her.

"As far as I know it's gone now so I want to just leave it at that," she said. "I'm trying to move on and forget about it as it still gives me a shiver down my spine every time I think about it.

"I have no regrets about speaking out about it. It was public anyway so it wasn't my decision.

"I'm on the box every day so I suppose it's just one of those things that you have to expect but I felt I had to stand up for myself.

"I've been away on holidays for the past week so it was lovely to just relax and forget about it all for a few days."

The Clare-born presenter was among those who attended last night's fashion show at the Festival Dome in Tralee, after being invited to cover the event by organiser Celia Holman Lee.

"We did it last year and had such a great time that I jumped at the chance to come again," Aisling explained.

"We were mostly backstage and it really was a laugh a minute."

The pair were spotted enjoying a couple of drinks after the show at the Carlton Hotel, where the Festival Dome is based.

It was a flying visit for Aisling, who had to return to Dublin this morning to edit the package for tonight's episode of Xpose.
