The Hooked on Tal­ent com­pe­ti­tion saw 13 lo­cal acts take to the stage, rais­ing money for the hall.

MC Pat Kent wel­comed the full house of 200 plus peo­ple.

He said: ‘It was a great night: a to­tal mix of X Fac­tor, Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent and The Voice. There was every­thing from sing­ing to mu­si­cians play­ing, to dog acts and hoola hoops. Peo­ple were sur­prised by how good it was and the va­ri­ety of the acts.’

Fethard man An­drew Whe­lan won the com­pe­ti­tion, fol­lowed by Aoife Good­i­son in sec­ond place and hoola hooper ex­traor­di­naire Moly O’Leary. Money raised is go­ing to­wards the up­keep of the hall.’
