The event was a smashing success, to quote "A really great night’s entertainment was put on last Saturday night in the Radisson by the young and old, male and female people of the club. It was a variety show that had everything - singers, dancers, comedy sketches with fun and laughter - all local and all amateurs, some never having been on a stage before. The winner was Hurling Holly, (aka Aileen Holly), who gave a wonderful rendition of the very funny monologue “The day I scored the winning goal”."

Chairman Michael Mannion thanked all who made the event happen, and as well as the organising committee, thanked the judges for their helpful and incisive comments delivered in a fun way – Ray Collins, Regina Bushell and Pete Casey. He thanked and made a presentation to Niamh Donohoe who put the whole show together as well as being the choreographer and without whom this show could not have happened. He also thanked the Radisson and all the sponsors and asked the audience to support them.

The event was launched in March at the Radisson Blu hotel
