Strictly Fundraiser Raises €250,000 For New Clubhouse

24 couples took part in the event.

A GAA club is dancing with joy after raising over a quarter of a million euro. 

Over 1,400 people attended the Oldcastle GFC’s Strictly Come Dancing fundraiser, which was held last weekend in the Kilmore Hotel.

The committee says the standard of dancing was exceptionally high so it was difficult for the judges to pick a winner from the 24 couples. 

However, it was Oldcastle's Lee Healy, dancing with Castlerahan-Denn’s Eimear McEnroe who took the honours, with an energetic dance to “I’m so excited.”

The Meath club aims to build a new clubhouse at Millbrook due to increased player numbers, and hopes to get the project underway later this year.

“This is an amazing start to our project, and we are so grateful to all our dancers, sponsors, and everyone who helped us with Strictly” said Club Chairman Dermot Monaghan. “Our new clubhouse will really make Millbrook into a family friendly destination for all our members, and we look forward now to getting the project started!”
