Preparations are on in earnest for ‘LIP SYNC BUCCS FIZZ STYLE’ which takes place in the Sheraton Hotel, Athlone, on Friday week, February 17th. The show starts at 8 p.m. and doors will be open from 7 p.m. It promises to a great night’s entertainment with participants from many sections of the club.

Acts from our Womens, Under-20’s and Youths teams will also perform as will local characters such as Nino Magliocco and Nigel Lyster as well as dapper barman at The Bounty Kevin Griffin. Choreographer Niamh Donohoe is whipping them all into shape at rehearsals and comedian/impersonator Alan Short will compere the event.
