• They might be school uniforms selected by a committee.
  • I'm actually from Ireland and a lot of schools here have a kilt in the uniform for girls. They mostly go for the tartan design in them with green(naturally!), red, black and blue being the main colours used. It's actually argued from historical evidence that the preactice of tartan-wearing, and tartan-wearing denoting to which clan you belonged, began in Ireland rather than in Scotland. We've got a number of Irish saints, Saint Kevin, Brendan and Patrick of course(who was actually Welsh, English or French depending on which book you read) and I don't remember hearing any of them commemorated through tartan patterns. The short version of my answer is I really don't think so. Tóg bóg é! (Irish for take it easy!)
