Junk Kouture

Junk Kouture Grand Final

Congratulations to the Transition Year team Deirdre Dolan, Ellen Mannion and Eoin Greally who represented the school so well in the 3Arena in Dublin on Friday 24th April. Although the team didn't come away with any prizes, reaching the final 80 from almost 1,000 original entries was a huge achievement in itself. We would like to thank all the students that travelled to Dublin to support them on the night. Here are some images of a very memorable evening with entertainment provided by Hometown.
