Ju­nior B sketch and disco danc­ing fea­ture in tal­ent show

Irish Examiner - Farming - - MACRA -

Glan­mire mem­bers had a busy week prac­tis­ing for the Na­tional Tal­ent Com­pe­ti­tion. The Cork County round took place on Good Fri­day in the Aghada Com­mu­nity Hall, and gave six mem­bers of the club the op­por­tu­nity to show­case their mul­ti­ple tal­ents. The com­pe­ti­tion con­sists of sev­eral cat­e­gories, in­clud­ing set danc­ing, disco/con­tem­po­rary dance, solo and bal­lad singing, in­stru­men­tal, com­edy act and Mas­ter­mind (gen­eral knowl­edge). Hav­ing suc­cess­fully made it through the Se­andún rounds in both the nov­elty and disco danc­ing cat­e­gories last month, mem­bers were feel­ing con­fi­dent and more pol­ished. Five mem­bers — Ais­ling Walsh, Karen Cashman, Gil­lian Ken­neally, Will Daly and Cathal Cashman — took part in the con­tem­po­rary disco dance.

They put to­gether a sharp dance that im­pressed the crowd and judges.

Will Daly, Cathal Cashman and Sea­mus Reid also showed their com­i­cal side with their hi­lar­i­ous Ju­nior B sketch. The side-splint­ing per­for­mance brought many laughs. The com­pe­ti­tion was stiff, with four acts com­pet­ing in the disco danc­ing cat­e­gory and three in the Nov­elty Cat­e­gory. Two acts from each cat­e­gory were cho­sen to go through to the na­tional rounds in Thurles which will be held later this month. The boys placed sec­ond in the nov­elty act cat­e­gory, while the disco dancers also placed run­ners-up, mean­ing both teams go for­ward to the next round. April is shap­ing up to be a very busy month with lots of events hap­pen­ing, in­clud­ing the Se­andún 60th an­niver­sary din­ner dance in Rochestown Park Ho­tel on April 14, and the Mr Per­son­al­ity Fes­ti­val on April 20 and 21 in the Springhill Court Ho­tel, Kilkenny (Glan­mire’s De­clan O’Hara will rep­re­sent the Se­andún re­gion).
