The only thing lurking in the dark this Halloween will be the 22
brilliant dancers taking part in Glenswilly GAA’s ‘Strictly Come
Tickets for the event, which takes places at the Silver Tassie on
Sunday, October 29th, are already booking out as fast as bats out of
Organsier and host Lee Gooch may not need much help with his horror
make-up but it promises to be a real fright night if he fluffs his
Lee admits that he’s under pressure delivering to his home community
in the Glenswilly area but he’s not getting too nervous.
“I know it’s going to be a great night because I’ve seen some of the
dancers in rehearsals and they’re real hot potatoes!
“I know we’re going to have an amazing night because so much
preparation has gone into this event.
“My only advice to people is to get their hands on their tickets fast
as this is going to be a sell-out night very soon,” he said.
Chairman of Glenswilly GAA Club, Eddie Crawford, paid tribute to the
organisers Paul Gallagher and Pauric Bonner and especially to the
three dance teachers Mary C Devine, Lorna Spratt and Jackie McAteer.
“It’s not easy to keep a GAA club running and Glenswilly GAA Club is
getting bigger and better every season.
“This is a very ambitious event but so many people have put in so much
hard work and it’s going to be such a great night,” said Mr Crawford.
No event would be able to get off the starting blocks without sponsors
and Glenswilly have pulled in ten of the best.
They include Inishowen Motors, DNG Boyce Gallagher, Tobin’s Service
Station, Gildea Traditional Farm Butchers, Kernans Service Stations,
Donegal Stationery Company, Larkins, The Grill, Letterkenny Glass,
McDonalds, Boyle Construction and James Doherty Buses.
The 22 brave dancers include Ann Marie Bonner, Cathal Gallagher, Niamh
Gallagher and Shane Mcdevitt, Breda Doherty and Manus McFadden,
Jacinta Walsh and Charlie Gildea, Eunan Mcbride and Marian McGarrigle,
Victor Wilkins and Mary McHugh, Tommy Daly and Aoife Godfrey, Paula
Mcbride and Stephen McDaid, Orla McDaid and Ronan Sweeney, Katie
Lapsley and Liam Gallagher, Janine McDaid and Gary Cullen.
The doors on the big night open at 6.30pm and the event starts at 8pm.
And with tickets costing just €15, the best piece of scary advice this
side of Halloween is – get your hands on some very quickly.
