Strictly Come Dancing
The Abbey Court Hotel was bursting at the seams on last Friday night for the spectacular Strictly Come Dancing fundraiser. As well as being a resounding financial success, it was one of the great social nights in the club’s history. Thanks to the twenty-four participants, in their exotic costumes. who entertained the appreciative audience with a fantastic variety of beautifully choreographed dances. The fruits of their long hours of practice work were evident for all to see. The witty Seamus Costello was outstanding, as usual, in his role as MC. Thanks to our impartial judges Muirne Hurley, Claire Loughnane, Seamus Hennessy and Johnny Looby who were very gracious in appraising the performances. The juvenile and camogie clubs are to be commended for all their hard work in organising this mammoth venture. They would like to thank everybody who helped or supported in any way.
