Ahane National School Fashion Show


Ahane National School announces details of gala fundraising fashion show

A showcase of fashion and local craft will take place next month in front of a capacity crowd at the Castletroy Park Hotel for the inaugural Ahane National School Fashion Show which was launched this week by style queen Celia Holman Lee.

Produced in association with the renowned Holman Lee Agency, the event takes place on Thursday 13th October at the Castletroy Park Hotel and will feature new Autumn/Winter collections from a host of local stores and a shopping experience for guests with local craft, retail and jewellery makers in attendance. Limerick City and County Council has come on board to support local craft-makers from the ‘Made in Limerick’ collective who will display a range of handmade goods, fine art, design, ceramics, textiles, glass, jewellery, natural skincare, wood, painting and much more at the event.

A prosecco reception will also take place prior to the show at 7pm with the fashion spectacle starting at 8pm. Up to 300 are expected to attend.

Speaking at the launch, Ahane National School Principal Siobhan Kennedy said; "There's a great buzz of excitement in the school for the upcoming fashion show at the Castletroy Park Hotel and we are delighted to have a team of dedicated and hardworking parents who have organised what promises to be a fantastic night on Thursday, 13th October. We were successful in our funding application to the Department of Education and Skills earlier this year to upgrade our back yard in the school and now we're looking forward to enhancing this space with some new playground facilities for sports and yard games. We have exciting plans for the further development of our school grounds and we know this fundraising will go a long way to helping us achieve that goal."

Some parents, staff and pupils of Ahane National School will also have the opportunity to hit the catwalk alongside the professionals from the Holman Lee Agency at the Fashion Show and tickets are selling fast.

"We are very conscious of the cost of living at the moment but we know we've put together a great value evening and a superb night's entertainment so ensure you get your tickets before they sell out!” said Laura Ryan, Ahane NS Fashion Show Committee. "We know that every cent raised will be put towards developing the school grounds for our children and for generations to come. We'd like to thank the Holman Lee Agency, Castletroy Park Hotel, the Council and all of the stores and stall owners who are taking part and particularly those businesses in our local communities of Ahane, Castleconnell, Castletroy, Annacotty, Murroe and Newport who have been so generous with raffle prizes and sponsorship. We know it will be a super night that is open to all to attend and we're very excited about it."
