Celia pays her respects
FORMER Fianna Fail stalwart Celia Larkin made a rare public appearance at Brian Lenihan's funeral.
But she is no longer the blonde businesswoman who accompanied ex-Taoiseach Bertie Ahern on State visits.
The one-time Drumcondra beauty salon owner now sports a fiery red bob and wore an on-trend neutral suit and nude shoes to last night's removal.
Her look, which stood out from the majority of the mourners dressed in black, has no doubt been influenced by her dramatic life changes.
Having left the political circuit she is now finishing a degree in politics and international relations in the University of Limerick.
Celia (52) who has lived in Killaloe, Clare for six years, is also reported to have found love again in the arms of John McNamara, a farmer from Ogonnelloe, Co Clare.
