A MEMORABLE night of dancing and fun was had at the second annual St Brendan’s Hurling Club’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ in the Ballyroe Heights Hotel on Saturday.

Over 400 people attended the event with the crowds arriving from early evening, waiting to get a good seat to view the entertainment.

The 11 couples had been practising hard under tutors from the Cassie Leen School of Dance and it showed in their opening performance which was introduced by MC for the evening, Stephen Wallace.

The couples then had a chance to dazzle the judges — Mike O’Halloran, Toireasa Ferris, Danny Leane and Vicky O’Sullivan — with their individual dances.

In the end there were two winners with Orlaith Hussey and Bobby O’Regan taking the public vote, while Jerry O’Neill and Katie O’Riordan impressed the judges the most to be the outright winners.

The 11 couples taking part were Killian Wolff and Noreen Lovett; Bobby O’Regan and Orlaith Hussey; Eoin Porter and Morna O’Halloran; Jack McCarthy and Lynn Moriarty; David Fitzgerald and Lynn Moriarty; Eamon Kirby and Kathleen Finnegan; James Allman and Sarah Casey; David O’Mahony and Linda Hickey; Noel Lenihan and Michelle Lyne; Seamus Skinner and Joanne Lawlor and Jerry O’Neill and Katie O’Riordan.

A fantastic night then and loads of funds raised for the future development of hurling at the club. Scroll down for photos (we’ll have photos from the audience later)...
