Teenagers show the way at ‘Youth Factor’

Teenagers from West Limerick were the big winners at Limerick Youth Service’s ‘Youth Factor,’ which was held last Friday at the University Concert Hall, Limerick.
‘The Youth Factor,’ which is growing in popularity every year, saw more than 20 acts take the stage to showcase the very best of Limerick’s youth talent in four categories: dance, performance, song and music. After careful deliberation, Foynes native Sarah Moynihan from St. Senan’s Youth Club was awarded first prize in the highly competitive song category with her acoustic version of Birdy’s ‘Wings,’ while Shannonside Trad, which features members of Cappagh/St. Senan’s Youth Clubs, emerged victorious in the music category. Fedamore Youth Club wowed the judges with their comic classroom sketch and won the performance category.  The winners will go forward to the national finals which will take place on Saturday, July 1st, at the Millennium Theatre, Limerick.
