Get the Gladrags on for Fómhar Fashion

Tickets have gone on sale for a major fundraising event to help secure funding to develop sports facilities at Gaelscoil Mhíchíl Cíosóg in Ennis.
Fómhar Fashion, which will feature pop up shops and a catwalk parade showcasing the latest Autumn/ Winter trends from a number of outlets across Clare, will take place at Treacy’s West County Hotel in Ennis on Thursday, October 22 from 7pm.
Among those talking to the catwalk on the night will be Clare hurler John Conlon and school principal Dónal Ó hAiniféin, Gaelscoil staff and parents as well as guest appearances by other Clare hurlers
Commenting on the background to Fómhar Fashion, a spokesperson for the Gaelscoil fundraising committee said. “The Department of Education and Science have already committed funding to Gaelscoil Mhíchíl Cíosóg to the tune of €698,000 for five standard classrooms, two special education classrooms and a lift for the next phase of our development. The school is involved in ongoing talks to secure further funding to complete the development. Proper Indoor Sports/Drama/Music facilities are vital in the view of the board and a large Halla must be provided at this point. The Department finance for primary school sport facilities is limited so we have no option but to raise the extra finance ourselves.”
The spokesperson continued, “The Board of Management has also applied for the maximum Sports Capital Programme (SCP) Grant of €200,000. If successful this will still leave a shortfall of approx. €100,000. This is a big challenge and we need everyone to play a part in realising Gaelscoil Mhíchíl Cíosóg’s potential by supporting the Gaelscoil Mhíchíl Cíosóg, Halla Fund through their attendance at our upcoming fundraiser.” Among the businesses displaying on the night are County Boutique, Sinead Madden Millinery, Kymari, Pamela Scott, Vermillion (Communion wear), CD2 (Communion wear), Mods & Minis, Carrig Donn, Willow, Mannix, Ela Maria, Brass, Cornucopia, Binsin Luachra and Fiona Mangan Millinery.
A number of pop up shops will also be hosted by Seoidín, Little Green Fingers, Sinaire, NC Paint Christmas Shop, Stella & Dot, Eye Candy amongst others.
