Stars come out to play for Round­wood Lip Sync Leg­ends


THE stars were out in force in Round­wood on Satur­day night, in­clud­ing a typ­i­cally flam­boy­ant Fred­die Mer­cury and a swivel-hipped Ge­orge Michael.

The line-up of pop and rock and roll roy­alty were all lend­ing their sup­port to the Lip Sync Leg­ends fundraiser for Round­wood AFC held at Aras an Tochar.

The event was launched back in Au­gust and each fea­tured act has spent the past cou­ple of months busily or­gan­is­ing their own fundraiser in prepa­ra­tion for the big night.

Satur­day was a com­plete sell-out and per­form­ers tak­ing to the stage at Aras an Tochar in­cluded Lau­ren De­la­mare as Whit­ney Hous­ton, Damien John­son as Ge­orge Michael, Jackie Phibbs as Sia, Ea­monn, Der­rick and Ja­son as Fa­ther Ted and Dougal, Becky Mol­loy as Tay­lor Swift, Nikki and Rachel as Jessie J and Ari­ana Grande, Ja­son Byrne as Mark McCabe, Karen Kinsella as Cher, Lucy and Alan­nah as Snap, Shane Lan­grell as Fred­die Mer­cury and Una Stephens, Deirdre Smith, Ann Brod­er­ick and Na­dia Tuck­ett per­form­ing as the Gospel group Mary Mary.

Each act was judged on both the amount of fundrais­ing they car­ried out and on the votes re­ceived from the pub­lic on the night.

The per­form­ers were then whit­tled down to the fi­nal four acts – Becky Mol­loy as Tay­lor Swift, Shane Lan­grell as Fred­die Mer­cury, Ja­son Byrne as Mark McCabe and Una Stephens, Deirdre Smith, Ann Brod­er­ick and Na­dia Tuck­ett per­form­ing as Mary Mary.

It was then left up to the judges to de­cide the over­all win­ning act. Faced with a very dif­fi­cult de­ci­sion was the judg­ing panel of the­atre pro­ducer and writer of The Chee­rios Panto, Karl Brod­er­ick, Ciaran Dunne, Mar­ket­ing Man­ager of spon­sors Al­tura Credit Union Ltd Tom Brennan and drama and dance tu­tor Rob Mur­phy.

The fi­nal­ists per­formed once more be­fore the judges de­cided that Mary Mary were the win­ning act.
