IT’S one of the highlights of the year off the playing fields for Austin Stacks and this year’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ event is promising to live up to past successes.

The 12 couples who are taking part at the Dome on Saturday, August 27 were unveiled at the launch night at Connolly Park on Thursday night.

The couples are currently busy rehearsing with choreographer, Jackie O’Mahoney, who has already noted that the standard is incredibly high this year.

Jackie’s creativity and innovative ideas ensure that each year the night becomes bigger and better, and this year is no exception. The dancers are enjoying the experience immensely so far, and apart from the inevitable nerves, they are very much enthusiastic and determined to give it their best shot.

This year, Austin Stacks are delighted to welcome Audiology Medical Services on board, as main sponsors of the event.

Based in the Bon Secours Hospital Tralee, AMS are a family-run premier independent gearing healthcare practice, who offer professional advice for patients and their referring specialists. Charles Lewis, Director of AMS, will be one of the judges on the night.

Each dancer has been sponsored by a local business and all of the funds raised on the night will go towards the Nun’s Field development at Connolly Park. The dancers have each chosen a charity, and the winning couple will receive a cash donation of €500 for their chosen charity.

Tickets for the night will be available shortly from Garveys, Supervalu and Kevin Barry’s Newsagents, Rock Street. Ticket price includes entry to the Locals Night at The Dome which takes place after the event. Scroll down for the contestants…
