Roscommon Injury Unit supports TY students with Junk Kouture Project

Congratulations to TY students Aoife Canavan and Myah Gallagher from High Cross College, Tuam, who qualified for the Junk Kouture Regional Finals with their project ‘Magenta Monarchy’.

The design was created entirely from recycled materials, with the bodice constructed from Plaster of Paris generously donated by Roscommon Injury Unit.

Eoin McGinn, Advanced Nurse Practitioner at Roscommon Injury Unit said, "We were delighted to be able to support Aoife and Myah with their project. Instead of discarding the ends of our Plaster of Paris, the material has been put to excellent use in the design. I was amazed at the results they produced from using the Plaster of Paris for the bodice and the film for the skirt, it’s incredible what they have designed.

We wish the girls the very best of luck with their design at the Junk Kouture Regional Finals which takes place on 04 and 05 March in the Helix, Dublin and hopefully we will see them represent Ireland at the World Finals.”
