11th June 2014 All roads lead to the Brandon House Hotel on Saturday where the rivalry between New Ross Celtic and New Ross Rugby Club again took to the dance floor in front of a packed audience who were blown away by the sheer talent that was put on show by the ten contestants. And what contestants they were. All dancers on the night did both clubs proud.
On numerous occasions on the night Mr Des Maloney had to ask the audience to refrain from over exuberance of their favourite dance couples.
When it came to the public vote for the top two couples in each club to face each other in the dance off, the audience dug deep in their pockets to put forward their favourites. With Sean Sutton, Claire Bolger along with Rory Hannon and Sarah Bennett representing New Ross Rugby Club and Ger Feeney, Annette Quegan along with Ethan Butler and Elaine O Connor Representing New Ross Celtic and what a Dance-off.
When it came to choosing the winner the pressure went back onto the three female judges who were Bernie Sinnott, Anne-Marie Cooney and Carrie McCracken who found it very difficult to separate first from fourth, but separate they had to. Sean Sutton and Claire Bolger along with Rory Hannon and Sarah Bennett came joint third, Ethan Butler and Elaine O’Connor coming in second. The crown for first place was passed to Ger Feeney and Annette Quegan who came away as Winners of Strictly Come Dancing, The Rematch 2014.
Both Clubs would like to thank all the dancers, sponsors and the public for their support in having a night to remember. We look forward to what lies ahead for 2015.
