Strictly a big success

Last Friday and Saturday night Cahir GAA held their version of Strictly come dancing Cahir 2018, and what a show the public and club members were treated too on both nights, the high standard from our thirty dancers was second to none and if you did not know you would think it was a professional outfit that took to the stage, on behalf of our club we would like to thank all thirty dancers for the work they put in over the last twelve weeks, practicing every night of the week and then some, we are very proud of this bunch and we will always remember those two great nights, we would also like to thank the strictly committee, all club members who helped out doing all sorts of jobs, well done people, our panel of judges on both nights, our sponsors the main one being Woodview Service Station( we want to wish them the best of luck on the opening of their brand new shop and food court next Tuesday) Cahir House Hotel for putting up with us for the last number of weeks, Supervalu for their beautiful hamper, John Quirke Jewellers for sponsoring the winning trophies on Saturday night and Irwin's in the square for sponsoring the winning trophies on Friday night, thank you to the choreographer Ruth Quinn who done a great job, our MCs for both nights The 2 Johnnies who were brilliant as usual (see picture 3 below), on the 2 Johnnies we would like to wish them the best of luck on their upcoming nationwide and indeed international tour in 2019, we must say thank you to all our other sponsors over the two nights for their kind donations, one person who was a great help to both the dancers and committee members and who we forgot to mention on any of the nights is Miss Leah O'Donoghue who was brilliant over the weekend so thank you Leah, we hope we have included everyone but if we have missed anyone we say thank you. The Friday evening winning couple were Collette Kiely and Davy McEniry (pictured below no.1) and the Saturday night winners were Gillian O'Keeffe and Kieran O'Dwyer (picture 2 below) and what great winners they were, congratulations to you all.
