Debs season was, like most things, completely new to the LaoisToday team when we tackled it.
Julie Anne Miller was on duty for most of them and she captured the Scoil Chriost Ri Debs brilliantly.
The lads are suited and booted, the girls dolled up to the nines.
Proud mammies and grannies are on hand with camera phones fully charged and at the ready and the excitement is palpable.
Yep, Debs season is well and truly upon us.
Scoil Chriost Ri in Portlaoise are holding their debs ball in Tullamore tonight and they were gathering in the Top Square in Portlaoise all evening.
We went along to get some pics and sample the feel-good atmosphere.
