Stars Of Our Bars County Final

Stars of our Bars County Final-The Ragg

The Vintners’ Federation of Ireland (VFI) in association with Smithwick’s, will host the County Final of “Stars of Our Bars” in The Ragg, this coming Friday .

Since January last, thousands of hopefuls will have the chance to showcase their talents in the “Stars of our Bars” pub talent competition, which took place in pubs and bars across the country.

But possibly few of our Licenced Hostelry’s have been as successful as Skehan’s Bar here at 190 Liberty Square, Thurles, who boast two contestants through to the County Finals. These two contenders are well known local soloist Ann Commins and new kids on the block, the band “Thicker Than Water.”  So get out there and give them your loudest support.

Proprietor of the well known historical ‘Skehans Bar,’ Pat Lineen, would not be drawn to-night on who his money was on, to win the final, but stated that judges would have major difficulty in deciding between both performers.

“Stars of our Bars” competitors are each in with a chance to win from a cash prize fund of some €50,000 and to be crowned “Smithwick’s Stars of our Bars” Champion 2011.
