HUN­DREDS PACK INTO MOUNTHAWK GYM TO WIT­NESS STU­DENTS STRUT THEIR STUFF AS PART OF ‘NEW YORK’ THEME

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - FRONT PAGE - By FER­GUS DENNEHY

THE tran­si­tion year fash­ion show has be­come an an­nual tra­di­tion for the stu­dents at Mercy Mounthawk and as al­ways, this years event proved to be a huge suc­cess.

Last Thurs­day was the turn of this years batch of stu­dents to strut their stuff on the cat­walk and it was a role they took to with gusto as they em­braced this years theme of ‘New York, New York’.

Dressed to the nines is the only way to de­scribe the stu­dents on stage as they the lat­est fash­ion from lo­cal stores and de­sign­ers, in­clud­ing Jas­mine, Annburys, Aoife Han­non, Fas­ci­na­tors by Frances and Rita Zachar.

Now into its fif­teenth year, hun­dreds of peo­ple filed through the doors of the school to not only show their sup­port for the school, but to also sup­port the two cho­sen char­i­ties cho­sen by the stu­dents.

These were Mus­cu­lar Dys­tro­phy Ire­land, the Nano Na­gle School Lis­towel and the school’s own Tran­si­tion Year.

While it looked like the big­gest cheer of the night would be­long to the teach­ing staff who dressed up as ‘Sex and the City’ char­ac­ters, they were pipped at the end by the undis­puted stars of the show - the ‘In­spired’ group who al­most brought the house down with the ap­plause they re­ceived.

The stu­dents re­served spe­cial thanks to their teach­ers, Ms Stacey O’Leary, Ms Emma Nolan, Ms Karen O’Car­roll and Ms Shauna Wil­liams who were in­stru­men­tal in help­ing the stu­dents to or­gan­ise a great night out for all.
