Limerick Macra News

Limerick Macra are preparing to host the infamous MacraVision competition, which will take place on 4th October at the South Court Hotel, Raheen, Limerick. Last year it was a great success. The present members of Macra will turn out in their glamour, coming from all corners of Ireland and it is also a super opportunity for people to come along and see what Macra is all about. It promises to be a fantastic event and has often being mentioned as a stepping stone to “You’re a Star”. The competition itself is very similar to ‘Stars in your Eyes’, where competitors dress up as their favourite act and sing, karaoke style. Prizes are on offer for the best group and solo singers and a special award will go to the best dressed act. It will be a fantastic night of entertainment with the best singers and impressionists in Ireland present and many surprises. Lisa Cahill will be running an exciting community dance workshop during the day. All are welcome to this event and you are asked to register your interest for this dance event by emailing or text 086 4085877.
