The most talented county by far

WELL we asked and by God did you deliver!

Everyone at the Clare Echo office has been absolutely blown away by the amazingly talented youngsters of the Banner county.

From beatboxing to poetry, sean nos dancing to gymnastics and everything in between, we received your videos by the dozen.

Every single performance was unbelievable and we especially loved to see families coming together to perform as a group.

Our youngest contestant was four year old Sheamie Garrihy from Kilfenora with his mighty rendition of ‘Tell Me Ma’, while 13 year old Saoirse Garrihy from Kilrush was the oldest.

Videos came pouring in from all over the county, with a fairly even split between East Clare and West Clare (no surprises there then!).

It takes great guts to put yourselves out there for the world to see and we applaud every single one of you.

We will be announcing the winner on Monday so keep your eyes peeled and your fingers crossed!
