IT’S gonna be another night to remember!

The Austin Stacks club has revealed the dancers who will take to the boards of the Dome in over two weeks time for their annual  Strictly Come Dancing fundraiser.

It’s a huge night for the Rockies with hundreds of people attending every year and this time a record number of couples are taking part.

As this year Austin Stacks are celebrating the centenary of the club, the theme of the night, “Dancing through the decades” will reflect this.

The audience are in for lots of surprises, as the event will showcase dance styles and music from the last 100 years.

Last night, the 14 couples were officially revealed at Austin Stacks clubhouse in Connolly Park.

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

Each dancer has been sponsored by a local business and the club are extremely thankful to them for their support.

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 are available from Garveys, Supervalu, Rock Street. Ticket price includes entry to the Locals Night at The Dome which takes place after the event.

There will be a prize for the best dressed male and female on the night, so put on your best attire and be in the Dome on August 26 for a night to remember.
