Talent 2017

On Sunday morning (Mother's Day, 26th March!) up to 250 children converged in Sixmilebridge for the stageing of the St Francis Credit Union Clare Community Games Talent competitions for u12 & u16. There was a large variety of events i.e. Solo & Group Modern dance, Solo Recitation, Solo & Group Singing, Solo & Group Music. It was coordinated by Mary Phelan with a team of helpers including Judges Mary Finnegan, Shauna Kerin & Mark Nestor who had a difficult job in most of the competitions as the standard of Talent in the County is extremely high. The first in each category now go forward to represent Clare in the National Finals in August.
