Gorey Guardian - - NEWS - By SARA GA­HAN

There was some weird and won­der­ful trans­for­ma­tions at Bal­ly­gar­rett GAA Com­plex as Realt na Mara hosted their very own ‘Stars in their Eyes’ night.

Enya Finn was the over­all win­ner at the sec­ond an­nual Stars in their Eyes fundraiser hav­ing trans­formed into the bearded lady from The Great­est Show­man film, while Paul Smith came in sec­ond place for his in­ter­pre­ta­tion of Frank Si­na­tra, fol­lowed by a mas­cu­line look­ing Spice Girls band in third.

Com­mit­tee mem­ber, and one of the or­gan­is­ers, Shane Quinn said they raised a lit­tle over €8,000 that will go to­wards the GAA Club.

‘We de­cided to do it again this year be­cause it was so suc­cess­ful last year,’ said Shane. ‘It is a great night out for ev­ery­one and we look for­ward to do­ing it again next year.’

There were more than 200 peo­ple from across Bal­ly­gar­rett and be­yond at the fundrais­ing event and 11 acts took to the stage. The money was raised through ticket sales, a mon­ster raf­fle and the open bar in the Bal­ly­gar­rett GAA club­house.

Shane said Realt na Mara GAA club would like to thank all the spon­sors, to those who at­tended, those who do­nated money or prizes and to all the hi­lar­i­ous acts who took to the stage on the night of the show.

‘It was an ab­so­lute bril­liant night,’ added Shane. ‘Some­thing we will all look for­ward to for next year too.’
