Stars of Kil­flynn Bars to hit high notes

The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - NEWS - By STEPHEN FER­NANE

THE fi­nal count­down is on to the 2018 ‘Stars of the Bars’ in aid of St Teresa’s Na­tional School in Kil­flynn which takes place this Friday, April 13, at 8pm in Parker’s and Her­bert’s bars.

The event is be­ing or­gan­ised by the Par­ents’ As­so­ci­a­tion and the Board of Man­age­ment at St Teresa’s Na­tional School who have come to­gether to se­cure fund­ing for a WIFI net­work at the vil­lage school.

Each con­tes­tant will get to per­form two songs on the night and they will be spon­sored by a lo­cal busi­ness or or­gan­i­sa­tion. Judges will op­er­ate be­tween both bars and it prom­ises to be a mem­o­rable oc­ca­sion. There will even be a ‘judge’s choice’ and a ‘pub­lic vote choice award’ on the night.

The judges en­trusted with de­cid­ing who reigns supreme in the singing stakes are Coun­cil­lors Toiréasa Fer­ris and Aoife Thorn­ton, and for­mer Min­is­ter Jimmy Deeni­han.

A fourth judge will be added to the panel in the com­ing days said the or­gan­is­ers.

It’s also a great op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to pro­mote their busi­ness and or­gan­i­sa­tion.

To date 14 lo­cal busi­nesses and orgin­i­sa­tions have come on board and there’s room for more.

So if you fancy your­self as a singer – or you al­ready know some­one who does – then a chance to be a ‘star of the bar’ is a must op­por­tu­nity.

“We’re look­ing for­ward to what prom­ises to be a fun night. It’s also an op­por­tu­nity for us, as a com­mu­nity, to make a pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion to our school’s fa­cil­i­ties,” said Ide Bros­nan, Prin­ci­pal of St Teresa’s Na­tional School.
