Preparations are underway for a sparkling show as Coláiste Ailigh does Strictly Come Dancing.
The staff and parents of Coláiste Ailigh will host a glittering night of dancing in The Mount Errigal Hotel on Saturday the 1st of April.
The event is being run as a fundraising initiative to stock the beautiful new school with library resources, sports equipment, drama props, music and art resources in the school.
Eleven couples, made up of parents, teachers, past pupils and friends of the school, will take to the floor to compete for the overall prize.
Host Lee Gooch will be accompanied by local television and radio personality, Caoimhe Ní Chatháil, who is a past student of Coláiste Ailigh.
Príomhoide, Michéal Ó Giobúin, said that he has been overwhelmed by the level of support and the enthusiasm of the school and local community. “Coláiste Ailigh is famous for its school productions and this event will be no different. The committee is made up of teachers and parents and we are looking forward to an entertaining and fun event, which will hopefully raise some much needed funds for the school.”
“We are grateful to everyone who has offered sponsorship and support so far, and are especially indebted to our “Diamond Sponsors”: Gallagher & Brennan Solicitors, Rushe Fitness, Watson Tool Hire, Brian Mc Cormick’s Sports and Leisure, Murray’s Pharmacies, Marley’s Coaches, County Seat, Castlegrove House and The Mount Errigal Hotel”, he added.
Under the direction of professional choreographers Shiela Conway and Oliver Wilson, the couples have already begun their rehearsals and the competitive vibes are flowing.
