MICHAEL Jackson, Queen, Tina Turner and Lady Gaga were just some of the stars impersonated by contestants drawn from all over north Kerry at the ‘Stars In Their Eyes’ fundraiser for Kerry Camogie on Saturday night.

Taking the format of the well-known ITV show, 10 acts took to the stage at the Ballyroe Heights Hotel and nailed their performances with lavish costumes, sharp moves and some very funny twists.

The night got off to a lively start with an opening dance from members of Kerry Camogie and all the acts were well trained for the night by Cassie Leen and Ciara Powell.

MC for the night was Radio Kerry’s Brendan Fuller while the judges John Brassil TD, well-known sports journalist Murt Murphy, Caroline McEnery of the HR Suite and Cllr Toireasa Ferris were captivated by the performances.

In the end there had to be a winner and ‘Queen’ featuring Adam Guerin, Darren Barrett, Gerard Leen and Nathan Dineen were the judges pick while the public plumped for The Proud Marys — Jane Behan, Carmel Quirke, Amy O’Sullivan, Kathleen O’Sullivan and Lorraine Hobbert.

One of the organisers, Fiona Flynn, was overwhelmed with the success of the event.

“It’s been fantastic, there’s over 550 people here for the night. We just want to thank them for coming, the acts, my fellow committee members who organised this and especially Jonathan Collins and all the team at the Ballyroe Heights Hotel who were fantastic all along.”
