Model Michele bids Bucks a final farewell as she jets off to States

MICHELE McGrath has finished up her last weekend at Buck's Townhouse ahead of an extended trip to the US.

The nightclub hostess and model worked the door for the last time this weekend for the foreseeable future and is now concentrating on spreading her wings in pastures new.

Michele will jet off shortly with fellow model Hayley Ryan as the pair go coast-to-coast on a three-month stint abroad, starting off with a trip to the Big Apple.

The former singer, who recently released a new demo, will fly off this Thursday after bidding a final 'adieu' to Dublin.

But Michele made sure to go out with a bang first, combining her going-away with the 26th birthday celebrations of model Emily McKeogh.

The party was organised by Emily's best pal and co-owner of jewellery retailer Crystals & Co, model Leah O'Reilly.

Attendees at the Buck's Townhouse party included Lynn Kelly and Louise Kavanagh as the gang marked Emily's birthday in style. Meanwhile, the party was also in full swing in Lillie's Bordello as they welcomed in revellers over the weekend.

Familiar faces included Westlife star Nicky Byrne, alongside wacky twins Jedward and socialite Virginia Macari, who was marking her 37th birthday celebrations.

Also spotted in the club was boxing star Bernard Dunne as well as former Mr Ireland Kamal Ibrahim, who's currently back in Ireland after a spell in Australia.
