This year's Talent Show took place over the nights of Wednesday the 10th & Thursday 11th December. Six acts performed each night and were followed by the hugely successful & very funny TY panto- "Snow White & the Seven Dubs", written, as well as ably directed by our own Ms. Magin.

The talent proved to be very varied indeed, ranging from Irish dancing to singing, more dancing, more singing, guitarists, a pianist, a drummer and even a bit of rap! The judge's decision was final though and three well-deserved winners emerged-

  • 1st place went to the musically gifted twin sisters Melissa & Sarah Ryan (3rd year), with Sarah on drums and Melissa on vocals/guitar performing The Script's "Man Who Can't Be Moved" and making it their own!
  • 2nd place was awarded to Angelica Javier (2nd year) singing her beautiful version of Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud" whilst
  • 3rd place went to the the very talented dancing duo of Niamh Reid and Kim Trimble (2nd year) with their excellent "Michael Jackson Remix"

Well done to all performers and congratulations to our worthy winners!
