Glitz and glamour galore at Moat's 'The Well'

An evening of glitz, glamour, elegance and style, beautiful music and top class dancing was enjoyed as the Grand Finals of the Midland Dancing Competitions  took over the Well, Moate on Sunday, October 30.

Contestants from all over Ireland graced the floor for a total of nine dancing competitions, together with a children's section.

PRO Tom Farrell, Mayor of Athlone and Mary Flanagan, Secretary of Midland Dancing explained this week that the aim of this competition, which has been running for just five years, is to promote dancing in general and more importantly to raise monies for three very deserving charities: South Westmeath Hospice, the Irish Cancer Society and St Christopher’s Services Longford. These charities work behind the scenes and provide help and assistance to several people.

The committee would like to thank the various sponsors of the beautiful trophies and all other sponsors who will be acknowledged personally.

A special word of thanks went to competition organisers Pat and Nuala Seery of Cloneyheigue, Kilbeggan, who secured several trophies and prizes for the competition;  to the DJ who provided the music; to Tom Curtin MC; photographer John McAuley; Judge Lorraine Herne and to Declan Manton of the Well for hosting the competition.

The final thanks was reserved for all the competitors who took part, and particularly to the large number of spectators who attended on the evening.
