Congrats to the 2017 National Youth Award Winners


2010 Youth Awards


The National Youth Awards 2010 were indeed a stunning success in every way. Over 930 people arrived to celebrate the night in style at the Lyrath Hotel in Kilkenny, and partied until the early hours of the morning.
The day began at the Hub with coaches arriving from all across Ireland, bringing excited young people together for a night of glamour and sophistication(…until the pyjamas came out later on!). The groups all changed into their ball gowns and tuxedo’s and each had their photo’s taken to capture the moment.  From there they moved down to the luxury and beauty of the Lyrath Estate.
The evening’s ceremonies were kicked off in style by No Name Club’s very own chairman John Donovan, and then handed over to the host and hostess for 2009 Kevin Lyons & Dale O’Sullivan who introduced each club in turn. The proceedings were then taken over by the effervescent talents of Fergal Darcy – DJ at i102104. Fergal introduced each of the 8 finalists and guided each of them through their on stage interview and “party piece” – not that any of them needed much encouragement! The wealth of talent was astounding, ranging from an unaccompanied solo, an unplugged version of The Cave by Mumford and Sons, and even a one man sketch from the D’unbelievables.
Once each of the finalists had performed, we were all then treated to a lovely 3 course meal to boost our energy levels ready to dance the night away. Before we could get our feet on the dance floor however, the main event of the night was announced – the winners of this year’s Host and Hostess of the year:
“…Ladies and Gentlemen this year’s winners of the No Name Club Host and Hostess of the year are…Holly McAndrew (Erris) & Joe Shine (Dungarvan).”
We would like to take this opportunity to officially give our congratulations to Holly and Joe on their success, and we will greatly look forward to working with them in the coming year.
It has to be said that all the finalists were a real credit to their clubs and to their communities, and all showed great team spirit in supporting each other leading up to and during the final event.
Following the celebrations the DJ’s took to the floor. The floor shook until 3am, when the sleeping bags came out in force and a vague attempt was made at getting some sleep…or not!
All in all, the whole event was fabulous, and if you were there we’d love to hear your memories of it so we can post it here for all to read.
