International Superstars At Collooney

Glitz and glamour were the order of the day in the Castle Dargan Hotel, when nine acts from all over the world descended on Collooney to compete in the first annual Owenmore Gaels got Talent competition. Such famous faces from the world of pop and rock entertainment, such as Britney Spears, Amy Winehouse, Jedward to name but a few, even Phil Lynott was reincarnated to once again front Thin Lizzy.

But it was the incredible talent of the world famous duo, Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton that won out in the end. RTE sports personality, Marty Morrissey was drafted in to

take charge of the nightís entertainment, all of which is in aid

of the new GAA pitch thatís currently been developed by Owenmore Gaels.
