We’ve just about recovered from our Club Fundraiser second edition of “Stars in Their Eyes” on Saturday November 18th and on behalf of the Club we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped to make not alone the night happen but proved once again what a wonderful and generous local Community and surrounding parishes can do.,
The night was a massive success, with all 12 acts showcasing their immense talent and treating a packed to the rafters Asdee Community Centre to an incredibly high standard from our organising committee to our many generous sponsors both locally and from surrounding parishes, vote sellers and everyone who gave up their time or equipment to get the place ready.
And of course, a big thanks to all who gave their support prior to, or on the night for creating such a lively atmosphere which showed the marvelous community spirit that exists.
Our judges Timmy Moynihan, Frances Kennedy & Ger ‘Flash’ Walsh were mighty entertainment value throughout the event & really added to it, while Eoin Kennedy presented the show in the guise of Donald Trump.
The ‘Stars of the Night’ Prize winners were Tom Kennedy & Tracy Long for their fantastic rendition & perfect choreography for Meatloaf’s Anything for Love.
The Judges Prize winners were ‘North Kerry Tools for Hire’ for their outstanding Beach Boys medley, which had the hall bouncing.
The Popular Vote Prize was won by Sinead Carr, who showed she was a star in the making with her song ‘Cén Fáth?’
The ‘Best Act Manager’ Award was won by Ivan Tydings, which was well deserved for his trojan work not forgetting of course all the remaining competitors who were duly awarded with an individual prize each.
Special mention to Beale GAA for their immense help & support, to Mike Breen for the mighty flooring job in the Marquee, to Richard O Brien, Jim Quinn& Martin Houlihan for their great help & technical support. There is one man who deserves enormous credit and the Club are really indebted to Eoin Kennedy; who in fact was the brain child of this event and who organised the whole evenings entertaintment with the help of a very willing Committee.
The hall was hopping from start to finish, with the bar, run by Joe & Gemma, & Marquee buzzing with life as the very popular Ger ‘Flash’ Walsh provided the excellent entertainment afterwards, the village really couldn’t have asked for a better night out.
