The Galbally Club version of Strictly Fun Dancing turned out to be a fantastic success with a huge attendance at the Aherlow House Hotel on Saturday night last.

And, all those that were lucky enough to secure tickets for the sold out promotion were treated to a feast of talent from start to finish making this very much a night to remember.

Each of the dancers looked fantastic and did them-selves proud with an abundance of talent on display from Galbally and surrounding parishes.

The Right Mood

Master of ceremonies, Willie ‘Bun’ Ryan got the crowd in just the right mood with his wit and repartee right from the start at an event that represented an outstanding triumph for the hard working organising committee that managed to come up with a programme to cater for all age groups.

Jonathan Scully and Tom Cussen also helped set just the right mood for the occasion with some appropriate upbeat music.
