At Clare Crusaders, every person in the show is touched by a disability in some way. Children, parents, siblings, colleagues and friends – from every walk of life. The proceeds of both the show and donations really help get the support needed.

This year, the Clare Crusaders’ show is

‘So You Think You Can Dance’

We’ve been rehearsing for the last 6 weeks and choreographer, Marcella O’Sullivan has taken much of her inspiration from ‘The Greatest Showman’. The weeks of effort put into rehearsals and bringing such an amazing show together for such a good cause is one of the most rewarding things I have ever participated in!

This year the Bookkeeper is sponsoring the childrens’ T-shirts

At this stage, anyone who knows me - whether you’re my bookkeeping clients, family, friends; or my BNI and Slimming World friends - you must be fed up listening to me talking about The Clare Crusaders. No? Then let me fill you in properly… ---->>>

"I’ve been hooked on theatre since I saw Annie on Broadway"

I was 13 years old and I got to go backstage and meet Sandy, the dog and Mrs Hannigan.  Since then, theatre is one of my happy places to be.

So after I moved back from New York to the beautiful village of Clondra, Co Longford (then on to the bright lights of Ennis), I was introduced to the wonderful world of Clare Crusaders – Dancing with the Stars, by a friend I met at Slimming World.

I have just "Got to Dance"

For me, it was a chance to help out with a great cause, meet new friends, and to DANCE!

You see dancing is my other passion (as well as doing your bookkeeping); and you might not know this, but I was actually an all-Ireland Irish dancing champion and a tri-state champion in  New York, New Jersey and Connecticut in the 1980’s. Then in my beloved Longford, I was involved with St .Mel’s Musical Society and the Backstage Theatre Group.

Now there’s plenty of life in this girl yet, so competing in Dancing for the Stars last year- with partner Gavin Coyle - was just the most amazing highlight for me.



 if you can't make it, we would really appreciate your support with a donation.
