Bros of Tralee – Review

Davitts GAA Club staged a very successful “Bros Of Tralee” fundraiser in The McWilliam Park Hotel, Claremorris recently. A large crowd attended what was a most entertaining “beauty pageant”. The contestants looked stunning, with the make-up girls playing a blinder, leaving no stone unturned in transforming thirteen macho men into rather credible looking ladies (with one or two exceptions!). Galway Bay FM’s Ollie was a superb MC for the night doing his usual ultra-professional job.

Thomas Waldron (Tamara) collected the coveted tiara and there were emotional scenes when he was announced the winner just pipping Ronan McNamara (Roseanne) and Lawrence Daly (Laura). Indeed any one of the thirteen contestants could have won as they all put on wonderful performances. A huge thanks to all thirteen lads who worked so hard for several weeks to perfect their hilarious routines. The other ten contestants were Gabriel Prendergast, Tommy Clarke, Lawrence Daly, Liam Kearns, Keith Prendergast, Padraig Moran, John Kean, Joe Ryan, David Mitchell and Luke Ronayne.

The organising Committee would also like to thank the generous sponsors of the event, The McWilliam Park Hotel, Michelle Rattigan (a brilliant musician who accompanied the singers), madcap DJ Michael Burke and Eamon Kelly, Billy Freeley, Noel Macken, Lucy Daly, the make-up girls (Sarah, Darina, Roisin and Rachel), the ticket sellers, everyone who attended and of course Ollie Turner.
