They came from every corner of the county to Kill-ashee House Hotel on the Monday after Christmas as Kildare GAA presented the Broadway Challenge.
A fundraiser for the Lilywhite senior footballers saw nearly 1,000 supporters pack into the popular venue as 10 acts took to the stage after weeks of intense rehearsals under the watchful and guiding eye of Leah Moran.
Members of the Kildare senior football panel, along with family and friends entertained the audience in what was described as “one of the best nights of entertainment for many a long day.”
In the end and after some mighty banter, craic and great musical endeavours the winners came from the production of ‘Jersey Boys’ with senior players Mikey Conway, Eamonn Callaghan, Emmet Bolton, Eoin Doyle and Seamus Hanafin being joined by Ciara Gatley, Katie Brown, Leanne O’Rourke-Bolton, CJ Hogan, Grace Doheny and Sean Dowling.
Following the 10-act programme dancing got under way with Tammy Browne (wife Lilies boss Cian O’Neill) and Band providing the music.
The night was finished off with a lively disco which kept the huge attendance on their toes until 2.30am.
A night to remember!
