Ballymac Strictly Love Dancing
We salute all our dancers who gave us such a wonderful nights entertainment last Saturday night in Ballygarry House Hotel: JJ Bonn, & Veronica Heaslip, Seán Savage & Rachel Godley, Wayne Enright & Louise Devoy, Bobby Howard & Denise Kerins, Seán O’Connor & Elaine Jones, Tim O’Connor & Sinéad Joy, Nathan McDonnell & Edel O’Donoghue, John Farragher & Kay Cronin, Mort Murphy & Maura Joy, Christy Leen & Molly Regan, Pádraig Leen & Karen Harty, Terence O’Connor & Michelle Lynch.
For Strictly Love Dancing to be a success, we needed to have twenty-four dancers who were willing to give up their time to put in hours of practice having slips, trips & falls and they did it all with aplomb. Each and every performance was fantastic and everyone in attendance had a wonderful night.
Unfortunately, Stephen Reidy fell ill running up to the night and this was disappointing as Stephen had trained very hard. We thank Stephen for his valuable contribution and wish him a speedy recovery. Christy Leen who took part in 2016 took his place and danced and trained for a full week and on the night both he and his partner Molly Regan won the Judges Prize and Michelle Lynch & Terence O’Connor won the Audience prize.
This year Noelle O’Brien & Lorna Leen led the Strictly Organising Committee. They did a wonderful job and we thank all the committee members for their hard work over the past few months: Mike Sweeney, Bridget Leen, Maeve O’Rahilly, Nora Curran, Brendan Falvey, Sheila Ann O’Rahilly, Jer Lynch and Maureen O’Shea.
To all our sponsors too numerous to mention and everyone who supported us on the night your support is greatly appreciated & long may it continue with Ballymacelligott GAA Club.
