One of our spectacular Fundraising Events STRICTLY SHAMROCKS rocked the Park Hotel when the world was a different place.
This is what we wrote at the time and some pictures to jog the memories of the great night.
The Dancers …
We promised more than a fundraiser and that was exactly what we delivered as Strictly Shamrocks provided a spectacular night of quality entertainment with brilliant dancing from all fourteen combinations. While Casey McDermott and Tye Adamson, were the worthiest of winners they just edged out Shannon Daly and Gerry Mulligan; Helen Hassett and Ray Purcell finished in third place with Ciara Maguire and Tom Moore in fourth place.
However, the extravaganza would not have been possible without the superb performances of the other dancers. We thank Jordana and Pearse, Marie and Aidan (what a performance!), Niamh and Padraic; Emer and Peter; Anna and Shane; Sandra and Robbie; Claire and Killian; Niamh and Ross; Kyle and Sandra and Matthew and Jemma.
In addition to their eight-week long dedication to perfecting their dance routines they also engaged in some serious fundraising along the way that made Strictly Shamrocks an outstanding financial success. Many dancers organised their own events beginning with Marie Kiernan’s Hamper Raffle in Buckley’s SuperValu and ending with a night of high culture organised by Helen Hassett with the Choral Group of the Mullingar Variety Group topped-up with prosecco and pringles.
THANKS TO ALL
