10 Year Anniversary
It is hard to believe that The Star Search Competition started 10 years ago. We have had 10 very talented winners, a few coming back a few years in a row before they won it but they followed their dream and got there.
It is the young people who have auditioned, performed at the semi and finals over the last nine years that have made this Competition the success that it is and we are truly grateful to you all and sincerely hope we will see some of you back at Star Search 2016.
Once again, we are also very grateful to our Sponsors Charlie Madden’s Bar Timoleague and Lettercollum Recording Studio as without your generous support, this wonderful event would not happen.
Please spread the word folks and tag anyone you know that may be interested.
