St Mary's College debs a glittering occasion
On Wednesday night we headed for St Mary's College where the crowds were gathering for the Marist Debs and a huge crowd were there, all looking exceptionally well and ready to enjoy the festivities in Dunboyne Castle.
We weren't too long there when I met up with Sean Hoey from Blackrock who was there with Genevieve Smith from Bay Estate, Kate Vernon from Point Road and Cormac Gray from Louth Village, Conor Durnin from Kilkerley, Ciara Johnston from Crumlin and George Baran from Castlebellingham who told me they were all up for a major night of fun together and couldn't wait for the buses to get going.
Next I got a word with Hannah Murphy from Railway Terrace who had brought her friend Saoirse Kelly from Racecourse Road who told me it was going to be a mad night.
After this I headed over for a word with Padraig McGrane from Oaklawns who brought Estera Patriubaviciute from Muirhevnamor who were looking fantastic and were on for a mad night with all their friends.
Not too far away I got talking to Dean Creaney from Ballybarrack who was having a laugh with Tegan Rios from Dromiskin who was with her boyfriend Chris McGahon from Manydown Close and they assured me it was going to be an epic celebration and no mistake.
Next I had the pleasure of talking to Anna Yatskiv from Windmill Court who was with Eddie Saksons from Waterville Crescent who were sporting the matching dress and tie combination and were ready for a major party.
As I made my way through the crowds I then got talking to Pauric Cleary from Blackrock who was lucky enough to be there with Emily Cumiskey from Knockbridge who were having a laugh with everyone they met.
Next I got talking to Darren White from Bay Estate who had bought Nicola Gonnolly from Cedarwood Park who was wearing a sensational green dress and they assured me it was going to me a massive night.
One lady with rather special hair was Molly O'Donnell from Cooley Park who had brought Andrew Califf from Muirhevnamor who were looking forward to a major night but both had early starts in the morning and assured me they were going to have a quiet time, as if, as if!
Not too long later I caught up with Shannon Leathem from Muirhevnamor who was brought by James McCartney from Mourne Vale who were looking great and were ready to party the night away.
After this I headed over for a chat with Jamie Atkinson from Bay Estate who was with Lauren Slevin from Rockfield whom I was told was being brought by Rían McDonald from Broughton Street and Jordan McInerney from Cooley who were already in party mode and enjoying the evening.
Not too long later I had the pleasure of meeting up with Destini Doherty from Kilcurry who was with Eugene Mulrooney also from Kilcurry and they were up for a night of it with Siobhan Cooney from Blackrock, Stefan Morrissey from Greenacres who were receiving moral support at the start of their night from Stefanie Morrissey from Greenacres and her main squeeze Patrick Murphy from Dunleer who wanted to wish them all the best.
I then headed over for a word with Emma Walsh from Avenue Road who had brought Cíllin McMahon from Castleblaney specially for her graduation ball and it looked as though he was enjoying it.
I caught sight of two young ladies who were looking exceptionally well and went over for a chat with Emma Killeen from Dunleer and Emma Merry from Blackrock who had been abandoned by Conor Coleman from Kilkerley and Kealan McQuillan from Blackrock who had disappeared off to the shop but the girls told me they were on for a buzzing night anyway.
After this I had the pleasure of talking to Ciana Rogers from Bay Estate in a beautiful silver dress and she had brought Chris Casey from Finnabar Crescent who was wearing matching silver tie and they were up for a major night of fun.
Next I got a word with Leanne Woods from Dromiskin who brought Paudie Carroll from Tallanstown who said they were ready for a major night of celebrations. I then caught up with Amy Lee from Barton Park whom I'd met at the St. Vincents debs and she was with Jordan Flood from St. Nicholas Avenue and they were looking forward to a fantastic night.
After this I headed over for a word with Gary English from Dromiskin who was there with Johnny McKnight from Dromiskin, Ronan Lynch from Willow Grove who was with Roisin Breen from Knockbridge, Fergus English from Louth Village with Dearbhle O'Connor from Dromiskin, the man in the best suit of the night Cormac Callan from Louth Village with Amy Begley from Bellurgan, Ultan Larney from Louth Village who was with Andrea McNulty from Avenue Road, Dylan Lynch from Omeath, Adam Lynch from Willow Grove who was sporting a very impressive dickie bow, Johnny Minnock from Ard Easmuinn and Dylan Martin from Ashbrook who were already partying the night away and couldn't wait to get to the Castle.
Finally, before we departed I caught up with Danielle McKeown from Bothar Na Feirme who had brought Conor Byrne from Beechmount Drive who assured me this was going to be the night of the year!
