Another amazing community event Strictly Claregalway on the 27th of January resulted from the efforts of a very active and productive committee and the commitment of our 26 dancers who gave a tremendous performance following months of preparation. We thank everyone involved including all our loyal sponsors and the local community who came out in strength to support the event. The positive atmosphere in the Claregalway Hotel on the night was heart warming and resulted in a great night out for all. Thanks again to all who contributed.
