The Vintners’ Federation of Ireland Stars of our Bars talent competition, in association with Smithwick’s, got off to a flying start last week with aspiring stars queuing at the doors of pubs across Mayo to showcase their talent and claim their stake on the fabulous prizes on offer. Competitions took place in pubs across Mayo last weekend with a wide selection of entrants such as dancers, singers, choirs, bands and comedians all vying for a spot in the county final.
In The Broken Jug, O'Rahilly Street, Ballina, Co. Mayo last Sunday night, Grace O'Neil singing ‘Heaven Help My Heart’ and Danielle Hunt singing ‘Footprints In The Sand’ went through. The second heat will take place tonight, Friday February 26, and a great crowd is expected to turn out to support their favourite local entertainers. Entry to the competition is free and aspiring entertainers can enter through their nearest participating pubs. A full list of participating pubs can be found at www.vfi.ie
