Breaffy GAA Club and the Irish Heart Foundation are looking forward to Saturday November 9 when Strictly Come Dancing Breaffy style returns to the Breaffy House Sports Arena. Ten couples are in serious training to see who will be crowned the 2013 Strictly Come Dancing champions following in the footsteps of last year’s deserving winners Brendan Cunningham and Celia McDermott. This year’s show is expected to meet the high standard of last year’s inaugural production, and behind the scenes months of preparation and planning will soon come to fruition. The judging panel consisting of Walter Donoghue, Brendan Cunningham, and Ivanka Nikimov, along with the hilarious Frank Forde as compere are definitely going to live up to expectations and leave us with a night to remember.
The 10 couples taking to the stage are Gordon Ryan and Sinead O’Donoghue dancing the charleston, Kevin Beirne and Fiona Heneghan stepping out to the merengue, Pat Tonra and Katie Casey dancing the paso doble, David Loftus and Sinead Hughes have a few tricks with their charleston, Henry Gavin and Pauline Jordan get up close and personal for the salsa, Michael Hall and Ellen O’Malley raise the tempo with the jitterbug, Ciaran Rice and Toni Bourke have taken on the cha cha, Joe Lawlor and Sharon Tolan will delight with a cool and sensual tango, Frances Carter and Julianne Hennelly will get the crowd going with their salsa, and Colm Kelly and Riona Gallagher end the competition with a lively jive.
Tickets costing €10 for adults are now available from competitors and members of Breaffy GAA Club executive and local businesses Little Angels, Moneen, Castlebar, and Name it Children’s wear store, Hopkins Road. Children under 12 €5 on the door. The doors will open at 7pm and the show starts at 8pm.
Rosaleen Ivers and Angela Irwin who are part of the organising committee are delighted with how the show is coming together. They have thanked choreographer Colette Hastings for her dedication once again, and all the dancers for their commitment, as well as the sponsors, organising committee, and the many people who have helped out in staging this massive production. With a sell out show last year and the massive interest so far, it is advised to arrive early to avoid disappointment. For further information contact Rosaleen Ivers on 087 9443624.
