On our way to It's A Knockout!
We started our morning with a visit to The Angle Day Centre where we had a fantasic time dancing and singing with everyone!thanks for a great time and being so welcoming!

We then headed to the Main Street where met with Radio Na Gaeltachta's Michelle. Elis (Gaeltacht Mary) and Carrie (Dungloe Mary) had a lovely chat with her on air. We then watched some great Irish dancers who were performing on th main stage as part of the Lá Gaelach.

We then popped into the local businesses of Dungloe for a quick chat and hello, then we where in the  SuperValu and The Cope to help the shoppers pack their bags. Lunch in the Midway was well overdue at this stage.

We are all looking forward to meeting our escorts tonight when we will all take part in Its A Knockout. Hopefully we won't get too wet and messy!

The King Come's To Dungloe - He Is Alive!

Liam Murphy: It's Elvis Tour Come to Dungloe
It is believed that there are in excess of 85,000 Elvis Impersonators in the world today! (Source experts.about.com)

In the USA the top impersonators from around the world compete in the “Elvis Idol” Competition for the title.

In June 2006, an Irishman named Liam Murphy WON the competition beating off all his competitors from around the globe and catapulted him to international acclaim.

Not only is Liam’s voice identical to Elvis, his show is exhilarating and action packed. The two hour show features most of Elvis’s big hits and also Elvis songs that most impersonators would be afraid to attempt, like Bridge Over Troubled Water, and You’ve Lost that Lovin’ Feeling to name a few and he's coming to Dungloe.

Here's a link to watch him performing Suspicious Minds LIVE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxa4EhThCtI

Liam Murphy's : It's Elvis Concert starts at 9:30 pm Friday 30th July on the Main Street Stage and it's absolutely FREE!!

Our Day Today - Wednesday 28th SuperValu Fun Day, Leo's Tavern & Introduction

2009 MFD Kate Ferguson,  Áine Sweeney & Edinburgh
Mary Gemma Ferry at Leo's Tavern
Hi everyone, another hectic day today for us after the great night we had on the Main Street doing a bit of line dancing to the country and western singers Elaine Boyle, Lisa McHugh and Shaun McMonagal! We all collapsed into bed after all the yesterdays events!

Today we where up early and first call was the SuperValu Fun Day where we meet so many lovely people and the kids where amazing, we where like celebrities for a few hours! We all joined in on the fun, a few bruises now from the bouncing castles but nothing Sally Hansen won't cover!

Then we went to Leo's Tavern in Meenaleck, home of the famous Clannad, Enya and also Leo Breanann himself. The food was great and was well needed after the jumping about earlier. We met some more locals there, everyone is so friendly here in Donegal.

We are just getting ready to take to the Main Street stage for our introduction to the crowd, we're all shaking like leaves, hopefully we all do well and we don't get to many tricky questions!

We hope we get the opportunity to meet more great people tonight, come along and support us, if not tonight some other night.

Talks to Us all Soon!
