* CastlewellanCome Dancing returns for the second series with the first semi final thiscoming Saturday 16 November 2013.  Whilst the group have been lesstroublesome with fewer irritated texts and phone calls to the organiserscompared to last year’s crew, there has certainly been no lack of incident witha couple of girls sustaining bruised or cracked ribs and a Phantom RaspberryBlower even made an appearance one night.  Fingers were pointed at ChickerMcDonald but sources tell me Rory McAlinden was the culprit!  This weeksees Magiggs & Orla Boyle, Jason Croskery and Clare Cleland, CollieFlanagan and Nina Cairns, Chicker McDonald and Aisling Murray, Conor Cunninghamand Caoimhe Toner and Rory McAlinden and Shell Dorans.  Rumour has it thatCollie and Jason will have more make up on than the girls and that Orla will belifting Magiggs rather than the other way round!!  All couples are evenlymatched and it promises to be a close call as to which three couples go throughto the final on 6th December.  The second semi final will take place nextSaturday 23 November.  Dance Instructor Shane Berger has told us he isdelighted with the progress and he wants to put on an even better show thanlast year with a few surprises thrown in as well.  If this is the casethen we can look forward to a cracking night’s entertainment as last year’sshow was absolutely brilliant!!  Tickets are on sale in Walkers and areavailable from the club – they are going fast please get them early to ensureyou get entry to the club on the night.
