The B Factor
All Roads lead to the Shannon Key Hotel in Rooskey on Saturday night next as the eagerly awaited “B” Factor takes place in the hotel. This is the club’s main fundraiser for the year and tickets are currently on sale from members of the club for €15 each.
It should be a great night’s entertainment with many parishioners appearing in a variety of guises on the night, including such world renowned acts as ZZ Top, AC/DC, Robbie Williams, The Spice Girls, The Pogues, Grease Mega Mix and many, many more.
Who’ll be the men and women behind these acts? Only one way to find out and that’s to get down to the Shannon Key on Saturday night for what should be an outstanding night of music, laughter and entertainment. Dancing afterwards with Feargal Mc Gill and friends and if you haven’t purchased your ticket in advance, any surplus tickets will be on sale at the door on the night.
