Croom G.A.A. Club Notes:

Strictly Croom Dancing Official Launch:

Our Strictly Croom Dancing Event will be officially launched this Thursday evening from 6.30pm in Croom Primary School. We have 34 dancers, who have been paired up into acts by our choreographer Bridget Harte, and she is putting them through their paces, as they prepare for the big night on Friday April 7th in The South Court Hotel. Tickets are available from any dancer and are €20 each. Voting is now open, with each dancer looking for your support, so please support them if you meet them, or you can contact them to pledge your votes. This is our biggest fundraiser for our new dressing room development which is currently under construction. We really need your support for this event, so we would encourage you to buy tickets for the night and also constribute some votes for the dancers of your choice. The club would like to thank each dancer for all their effort, and cannot wait to see the performances on the night.
