It was a late night and a great night for the 2015 Debutantes of Saint Mary’s Holy Faith Convent, Glasnevin this week.

The past pupils chose the picturesque setting of Dunboyne Castle and Hotel for their glitzy Debs Ball.

Pale purple, blue and green hues proved popular with the ladies while gents cut a dash in razor sharp suits.

Having posed for pictures, and admired each other’s ensembles, guests sat down to a delicious three course dinner before hitting the dance floor with a vengeance.  

There was plenty of excitement when Chloe Dobbyn was named Ultimate Drama Queen in the ‘Debs Awards’.

Meanwhile,  Holly Roccliffe took home the Funniest

Person title.

“It was such an amazing night,” Stephanie Ryan of the Saint Mary’s Debs Committee told the Herald.

“It was good fun but also quite sad as it was the last time we were all going to be hanging out together.

“It was lovely to catch up everyone, hear what they’re doing now and relive some old memories”.

Trigger happy guests ensured a constant stream of selfies were taken. 

“I think there are hundreds of photos on Facebook,” Stephanie said laughing. 

The party continued into the small hours but things started to slow down when breakfast was served at 4am.

“In the morning we all crowded on to the bus and made our way back to the school,” Stephanie said.

Having reached the school gates, debutantes called patient parents and taxis  and started making their way back home.

“We were all pretty tired but I think most of us were ready to carry on,” Stephanie said. “I don’t think we wanted the night to end.”
