Jump up and down for country legend coming to Quane's

IF you're one of the unlucky few who were unable to get their hands on tickets for country legend Garth Brooks' upcoming gigs in Croke Park then Quane's Bar in Blennerville is the place to be this Friday night.
As part of their ongoing fundraising efforts, the Parents Association of Blennerville National School have decided to tap into the national Garth Brooks frenzy by organising a Garth Brooks lookalike competition at the bar. The fun and games kick off at 9pm on Friday and entry is free. As well as the lookalike contest there will be a range of spot prizes including prizes for the best stetson, tightest jeans and highest boots.
You can dust off the old cowboy and cowgirl girl gear, grab a partner for the dance and even sing on stage and let the Thunder Roll to your heart's content. The night will feature all the maestros' hits, line dancing and some 'Ropin' the Wind'. So if you have Friends in Low Places, why not slip on down to Quanes' Oasis for a great night of Shameless craic.
Principal Terry O'Sullivan said they had the idea for the fundraising night when they saw the unprecedented interest in the country superstar's Dublin gigs.
"Some parents were disappointed not to get tickets for the gigs, so we decided that in case Tomorrow Never Comes, to make their dreams come true, kind of," he said. "This is for one night only, unlike Croke Park, there will be no extra gigs put on," quipped Terry.
