There was a fantastic turn out, and a generally great night was had by all at the recent Adults Halloween party. Not to be outdone by the children’s fancy dress, the parents did us proud with a fantastic array of costumes including Witches, Vampires, Ghouls, Zombie Bride, Black Swan, Day of the Dead Sugar Skull, WWII Pilot, Batman, Wolverine, 2 Wallies!, Cowboys, Nuns on the Run, and even a Debt Collector! Just to name a few.
The camera bulb was flashing all night with Lucy Warren taking some fantastic photos (copies can be purchased – details below). The heads and tails game was a great success and together with the raffle and admission ticket sales we were able to raise over €1,000. There was a great selection of music by Mark Feighery, delicious food by Sarah and Noel Thompson, and there was even a Candy Buffet, styled by Jill McDermott, with a selection of retro sweets. Some new friendships were forged and old ones renewed.
Many thanks to everyone who came on the night and made it such a success, and also a big thanks to those who couldn’t be there but supported the event.
It has been agreed that it was a great way to get together at the end of the longest school stretch, for the new junior parents to get to know the older ones and generally have a bit of craic…until next year where hopefully we can surpass this year and make this a much anticipated event.
In only a few short weeks the organising committee, led by Sam Gallagher, did a fantastic job organising such a great event and raising such an impressive amount of money. Huge thanks go to Sam Gallagher, Susan Laughlin, Anne French, Sandra Lawlor, Michaela Phelan, Serena McCoubrey, Janet Fletcher, and Jill McDermott.
