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.
The popular Thailand bookie Hoos Yer Wan has just released the odds for the Davitts Bro’s Of Tralee Contest. They are as follows:

After weeks of auditions, the following are the successful candidates:
M.C. on the night is the wonderful Ollie Turner of Galway Bay FM while the music will be provided by DJ Michael Burke, in his own unique style.

Among the contenders for the tiara are a few prominent members of the Davitts Senior and Junior teams, a few avid supporters of the Club, a rock star/actor, one or two “mature ladies” and a couple of lads from neighbouring Clubs.

Gardaí are advising people in the Ballindine/Irishtown area to be extra vigilant as there has been reports of a number of items of ladies underwear disappearing from clotheslines in the past week. They are anticipating that this problem is only likely to escalate in the next three weeks…
