Dundalk Gaels Lip Sync

A large crowd gathered in the Fairways hotel for a night of entertainment


Lip Sync Winners 003

A large crowd of over 600 filed into the Fairways hotel for a hotly anticipated night's entertainment. 11 acts had been working hard over the previous six weeks under the guidance of Dancing with the stars professional dancer and choreographer Laura Nolan to battle it out for the crown of Dundalk Gaels Lip Sync champions and raise funds for the club. Their hard work really paid off as each performance had the four judges and attendance on their feet with roars of approval,

MC Olly Turner kept the night flowing with laughter while introducing and interviewing the acts. The F'n'Karens were first on stage and set the tone for what was to come, the Screams in the room by the time the three finalists, 003, The Dundalk Dolls and Bay City Teachers where announced had reached fever pitch. All three acts performed one more time before the judges, Blackstone motors Sandra Waters, Tom Doonan actor and performer of musical theatre, Tara Gill of SONG Dundalk, and dancer Adam Fogarty who featured in the 2023 blockbuster Barbie crowned 003 as worthy champions.



Dundalk Gaels chairperson Ciaran Culligan " I’d like to start by thanking the lip sync sub committee, five months of planning, phone calls, emails, meetings. Yous left no stone unturned to deliver a spectacular evening. I have to mention one man in particular Niall Morgan who lead the group with utter dedication, he must be going to sleep at night just muttering the words lip sync. Thanks to all 11 of our acts, your time, commitment and fundraising efforts are massively appreciated by everyone and without yous the night would not be possible. Special mention to the Bay and Dife acts from outside the club, our club will be forever grateful". 

"Thanks to our wonderful choreographer Laura Nolan who whipped the acts into shape in a few weeks, to events 54, our MC Olly and the fairways hotel.

Thanks also to granted productions who’s expertise and knowledge helped to deliver a night to remember and made it the success it is. Thanks to our 4 Judges, Tara Gill, Adam Fogarty, Tom Doonan and Sandra Waters. I don’t envy your job after watching the acts. I would also like to thank our headline sponsors Blackstone motors, thank you to all of our act sponsors whose names you have seen listed on the screens this evening and also all of those businesses who have donated to our acts and you the Gaels community that have bought tickets or supported acts.Your continuous support of the club is greatly appreciated”. Continued Culligan

"Our club caters for boys and girls starting with our nursery group where 4 year olds put on the blue and white for the first time right up to our adult teams, as well as running an all star programme designed for kids with additional needs. Everyone of the kids, teenagers and adults that walk through the gates to be part of our club on a daily, weekly basis make up the fabric of what our is club based on, friendships, loyalty, community, togetherness, GAA for all. Off the field our state of the art floodlights near completion and like our pitch will be the envy of the county. On the field I’m very excited for our teams, the underage looks very healthy both boys and girls have lots to look forward to in 2024. At adult level our Male and Females teams will fancy a good crack at their respective championships or should do after this". He went on

Before concluding "Our club committee is made up of a great mix of male, female, young and vibrant sprinkled with experienced wisdom and our aim is to deliver success both on and off the field. As we approach our 100th anniversary in 4 years time we need and want everyone of yous in attendance tonight to help us achieve that. immerse yourself in club activities, go out and support our teams, volunteer at club activities, participate in club activities. It’s your club be part of it".
