|Lip Sync Battles 2017 Rocks the Club!|
The club was rocking on Saturday night as the club's fundraiser Lip Sync Battles "Counsel Style" took place. The 12 Acts took to the stage and performed their hearts out and were judged by Philly McMahon and Louise O'Hara representing Dublin Football & Camogie and also Mary Boyne representing our Sponsors the Drimnagh Credit Union. Under the guidance of our superb MC Alan Shortt the crowd were entertained throughout the evening. The 12 Acts that took part were 3D, The Spice Bags, The Weekdays, Wrong Direction, The Drimnagh Posse, Sham, The Corner Boys, Hunrealz, The Chain Gang, Little Minx, Bad Habits and The Weather Queens. There were some fabulous props used on the stage but a big mention has to go to the brilliantly engineered Venga Bus that joined Bad Habits on stage. All the Acts were brilliant however there can only be one Winner so a big congratulations to "3D" who took the coveted Lip Sync Winners 2017 trophy. The winning Act were made up of Aisling O'Snodaigh, Noel Byrne, Mandy King, Tony Whittaker and Anto "Elvis" Farrelly. Congratulations to the Organising Committee in conjunction with StageServ for putting on a fabulous show and to everybody who supported it.
|Senior 3 Camogie beaten by 1 Point in Championship Final|
Heartbreak for the Sen 3 Camogie Team who were beaten by Faughs in the Championship Final by a point. Final score Good Counsel 4-1 Faughs 1-11. Superb performances from Jodi Roche, Giya Batacan and Suin Keating in goal, but all the girls should be hugely proud of themselves for the sheer grit and determination to get themselves back into contention in the second half. This team has made huge progress this year by winning the league and will compete at the higher level next season.
