We were thrilled to take part in the Carrick Music Festival last weekend in Carrick on Suir. We were honoured to perform on stage with two other great societies, Thurles Musical Society and also Carrick Musical Society.
We would like to thank the festival committee, the Strand Theatre in Carrick on Suir, the adjudicator Tony Finnegan and to also say congratulations to our competitors.
We were delighted to have won the Dick Meaney trophy for Best Overall Show, and were thrilled to bring home some individual awards also.
Congratulations also Tony Carty who won best male performer, Best Chorus, Best Musical Number – for Facade, and the Adjudicator Award for best technical
While we are absolutely over the moon about winning best overall show, this festival is about more than awards and to echo Tony Finnegan is so important for musical societies to come together singing and performing and entertaining audiences doing something we love to do.
We cannot wait to return to Carrick next year.
