The Lip Sync Challenge is on

Preparations are underway for the Kilcullen GAA Lip Sync Challenge, writes Orna Whyte. All ten teams have been busy digging out those dancing shoes and rehearsing every Sunday for the big night on 29 October in Killashee House Hotel.

The teams range from 80s Icons to Popmania so every genre is covered which definitely will give everyone something to sing along to.

The teams are busy selling tickets and getting sponsorship so if you would like to purchase tickets or wish to sponsor a team or individual, don’t hesitate to contact any of the teams mentioned below.

If you can’t make the night there are other ways you can contribute — by sponsoring the teams via Go Fund Me links or getting in touch with the team members listed below.

The night is a fundraiser for Kilcullen GAA with all dancers and organisers volunteering their time to raise much needed funds for the development of a growing club. Participants are from both the club and community which will make for a great night for everyone.
