What an incredible show. Clonmel’s Got Talent, run by Clonmel Commercials, came to a rousing finish at The White Memorial Theatre on Friday night as 22 acts thrilled the packed venue.
Singing, dancing and playing their way through the show, these youngsters displayed talent of the very highest order.
From the opening act, as Caitlín McVicker delivered a beautiful rendition of “I dreamed a dream”, to the closing act when young Tommy Mullins sang “When I was your man”, the audience were left spellbound.
The first of the prize winners, Anna Morris, danced beautifully, displaying a natural grace. Secondary school winner, Rockwell’s Ben Sullivan, was outstanding with his version of “Radioactive”.
Molly Hogan from the Loreto danced her way into second place with a wonderful performance. Ellie Mackey is a tremendous singer and didn’t disappoint, singing her way into second place in the secondary schools competition with “Don’t rain on my parade”. Ballymacarbry’s Cian Smith, with a hugely impressive display on the Uileann pipes,played his way into second place at primary level. By the time Tommy Mullins from Kilcash took the stage for the final act the audience had been treated to 21 wonderful performances and Tommy ended the evening with a winning performance of “When I was your man”.
There was a case to be made for each and every young performer and all contestants can be well pleased with their efforts. Credit also goes to the organisers and George Barry as ever was wonderful as MC.
