TopButton is in awe at the amount of work done by two people over at the Paisean le haghaidh Fashion headquarters. We have a large team here at TopButton and Shannon and Sarah are puttng us to shame with their amazing fashion blog. They seem to have thought of every aspect of fashion. Shannon has also started to make videos. We didn’t realise until today that they also update their different pages regularly at the bottom of each page. They even explain how to make homemade sprinkle nail varnish. How do they think of this stuff?

Law Day

This week all the fourth years experienced what it would be like to be in a court room drama. James Fahy, a barrister, came to Partick on Wednesday, Victoire on Thursday and Loyola on Friday. We talked about all the different types of courts and Mr.Fahy told us some stories about some of the cases he had to deal with. It was an amazing experience and everyone enjoyed it. At the end of the day we got to experience what it would feel like to be in a court case. We had barristers, solicitors, witnesses and the accused. Mr.Fahy was the judge. It was really enjoyable and a lot of people left the R.E room with a new career choice in their heads.


With the Christmas Carol Concert approaching, students should be encouraged to join the school choir. It’s a great, fun, enjoyable way to be involved with the school. It’s enjoyed by students from first to sixth year. The fourth year choir recently went to Glenstal Abbey where they performed with students from schools around Limerick city and also the boarders from Glenstal Abbey.We learned that the fourth years really enjoyed this opportunity and they would love to go again.Choir is a great way to experience a different side to school so have a think about joining.
