The buzz words in Killeigh and Tullamore this week are ‘Jigs N’Reels’, everyone seems to be talking about the show and the dancers taking part in the fundraising event for Killeigh Community Centre Development on Saturday 17th November in Tullamore Court Hotel.
After several months of planning for the show by the hard working committee and 10 weeks of training in Fergie’s function room by the volunteer dancers it is now coming to a climax when the dancers take to the stage on Saturday night. The costumes and Glitzy Bits are all in place in the My Fair Lady suite of changing rooms for Strictly Jigs N’Reels show with thanks to the main sponsor Kevin Gorman Fastway Couriers.
It has been great fun seeing the transformation from the start of the training to get this far, the confidence and ability and commitment of the dancers is just fantastic and all credit to the chorographers Samantha Hughes and Ciana McGarrigle kindly sponsored by Cash and Carry Furniture.
The names of the judges, who are sponsored by Walsh Brothers, are still classified information so that there will be no canvasing. The judges, dancers and committee will enjoy the show hospitality kindly sponsored by Gerry Walsh Energy Superstore. The judges have 50% of the vote while the audience will have the remaining 50% with thanks to the Arramount Furniture voting cards which will be sold during the show. All this happens under the watchful eye of our Master of Ceremonies for the evening, the Glenisk sponsored, Mr. Brian Gavin who is kindly suited and booted by Guy Clothing.
The Jigs N’Reels show is probably being watched around Ireland and the world on Facebook [Killeigh Community TV] using the live cameras and being sponsored by ‘Tullamore Pipe and Drain cleaning’ and the overall photography sponsored by Paula Nolan.
Strictly Come Dancing theme shows are still one of the greatest fundraising events for local communities and clubs. Colm McCabe Events offer a wide choice of themes for fundraising shows which gives great entertainment value but most importantly it brings together a fabulous cross section of people and brings out true community spirit and friendships.
Doors open at 7pm for the show and show will start at 8pm. All guests are asked to be in their seats for 8pm as the dancers will be using the aisles in the venue as part of the show. There will also be a souvenir booklet available on the night which will also be numbered for a special raffle during the night.
