Success for our TYs at Trashion Fashion!

After months of preparation, more than a few fingers and thumbs glued together, and multiple battles with unruly straps, we were ready to showcase our recycled costumes at the Trashion Fashion Event

Local fashionistas were treated to an evening of glitz and glamour when the students of Louth showcased their couture creations at the seventh annual ‘Trashion Fashion’ event at the Carrickdale Hotel on Wednesday 23rd January. The fashion competition is open to all secondary school students in Louth. The challenge posed to students is to create a couture outfit of any shape and size made by the least couture of materials – junk! 

Six costumes were submitted by students from Transition Year in Colaiste Chú Chulainn into the event. The costumes which were made with a variety of materials including crisp packets, old examination papers, plastics, baby dummies and so much more!


We were delighted to have two winners in the event, and are ectremely proud of each and every one of the students who put so much work into getting prepared for the night.

The winners were:

Magdalene losses – best performance (Tara Woods, Mickey Doyle, Katie Farrell)

Standards set for young people – one of overall winners (Laura Jane Hearty, Sarah Hoey)


All of our costumes received very high praise. The team members include:

Sophie O’Kane, Ayo Adesanya, Ronke Amushan

Finn Duffy, Michael Dunne, Markuss Ogsts

Anne Reilly, Rose O’Brien, Alannah Murray

Hannah Reilly, Ly Dillon, Grace McEntaggert
