Ready, set, Lip-Sing!

The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - NEWS - By FER­GUS DEN­NEHY

FOL­LOW­ING up on their hugely suc­cess ‘Strictly Come Danc­ing’ event last year, Churchill GAA are back again with another huge fund-rais­ing event.

The club will host their very first ‘Lip Sing Bat­tle’ next month, a night which will see 11 con­tes­tants tak­ing to the stage for a night of singing and danc­ing. The event is all set to take place in the Bal­ly­roe Heights Ho­tel on the night of Sun­day, May 6.

Un­der the watch­ful eye of Jackie O’Ma­hony, the will­ing singers have all grown in con­fi­dence over the past few weeks and were full of beans at the launch of the event in the Oys­ter Tav­ern on Fri­day night.

“If it’s any­thing like last year, then we’re in for a good night. We have a fine crew of peo­ple here who are ready to put on a show,” said Noel Dil­lon, speak­ing to The Ker­ry­man at the launch.

Michael Healy-Rae TD and Ca­tri­ona O’Sul­li­van are con­firmed as two of the four judges for the night, which will be a strictly over 18s event – tick­ets for which are set to cost €20. They can be bought from mem­bers of the clubs or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee or by con­tact­ing the club’s Face­book page.

Hurry though; if de­mand for tick­ets is any­thing like it was last year, then you are go­ing to have to act fast to se­cure them!
