TRALEE Rugby Club will be hosting its first Strictly Come Dancing in the Ballyroe Heights Hotel on Friday, June 29 and the 11 couples are more than halfway through their two month training programme.

This event, which was officially launched at their base in O’Dowd Park on Saturday night, is being held to raise funds for the redevelopment of their pitches and to support their rapidly expanding juvenile section which has seen big increases year on year.

The four judges tasked with choosing a winner on the night are Siobhan Fleming (Munster Captain), Ciara Griffin (Irish Captain), Mike Keane (Incoming Munster Branch President) and local celebrity and strictly fanatic Kevin Finn.
