Eight from Scoil Chriost Ri in Portlaoise, and one each from Mountrath Community School and Mountmellick community School.

The Mountrath entry is called Mother Nature, and the Mountmellick one is called Sports Warrior.

The SCR dresses are called Daffodil Day, GAAtsby, Metallicana, Moulin Rouge, Rising Tide, Tea Soldiers, Vior Viking and Celtic Eclectic.

All of the semi finalists must next put on a choreographed stage show at the University of Limerick on March 10.

Just twenty out of the 80 stunning junk creations in the South region, will be chosen by judges to go on to the glamorous national final in the 3 Arena on April 14. There the votes may make the difference, as they count towards 10 percent of the judges' final decision.

Voting will remain open for one week, and can be done every 24 hours.
