THE 2017 Strictly Clon troupe can’t hang their dancing shoes up just yet. 

They are set to take to the floor for the very last time at the Strictly Clon Dancing Charity Night, which takes place in the local GAA Complex in Ahamilla on Saturday January 20th.

This year the dancers have selected the local charities they will dance for: West Cork Palliative Care, Irish Community Air Ambulance and CoAction West Cork. Last year’s successful charity event saw four other local charities receive €1,588.75 each and organisers are hoping that this year’s charity night will be as successful.

Prior to Christmas the dancers were also busy, with some of them paying a visit to Clonakilty Hospital where they entertained the patients and they also held a show in Rossmore Hall in aid of Marymount Hospice.

Tickets for the January 20th event are €15 and are available from Kevin O’Regan Fuchsia Footwear, Scully’s Butchers and Paddy Meade’s. Doors open at 7.30pm and the show begins at 8pm. See ‘Strictly Clon Dancing’ on Facebook for more information.
