The call out for entries for the all Ireland secondary school competition will be launched this tomorrow by style guru Pippa O’Connor and Louis Walsh.

They will be joined by the four 2018 winners, who will showcase their fabulous junk outfits giving future entrants a taster of what can be achieved and is expected.

The event takes place Tivoli Theatre, Francis St, Dublin 8 and Pippa and Louis will be on hand for comments.
