Strictly Bray Emmets
Bray Emmets Strictly Come Dancing was a smash hit on the double at the Killiney Castle Hotel on Saturday night. Close on 900 people packed into the two ballrooms in the hotel in  a Strictly - Strictly night as first the couples performed in one venue and then dashed to the other to do a second show - almost at the one time.

The audiences at the two ballrooms got great value for money as the demand for tickets to watch the Bray Emmets competition was  sated in this manner. The organiser Kevin Rowe, the two MCs and the six judges - three at each ballroom- were  as one in declaring this a night to remember. Normally when there are 16 couples on display, it is only to be expected that parts of the show will sag.... not this time, as a consistently high standard was maintained from the first flash of   fleet foot to the last.

Just for the record Kelly Prunty  and Jamie Quiney  came first, followed by Rosemary O'Grady and Peter Kiely with Caroline Walsh and Dave Barry third. But those six people would be the first to agree that in the end there were 16 sets of winners.
