Coolmine Talent Show ’09 (Audition Results)

March 3, 2009

Well done to all who auditioned. For those who did not reach the next stage please try again next year. Remember practice makes perfect. The judges had a very difficult task, as the standard was very high.

The sixteen acts listed below have been successful in making it to the final taking place in the Draíocht Arts Centre, Blanchardstown Theatre.

Please note the following:

  • The results have been put in the running order of how you will perform in Draíocht NOT in order of merit. 
  • Meetings will be scheduled with all participants in due course. Attendance at these meetings is compulsory. Any act failing to turn up at more than two meetings will be removed from the competition and replaced with another act from the Audition heats.  (Notice of meetings will be posted on the Library window and announced on the intercom. It is your responsibility to check everyday for any notices)
  • Any Act that is using a backing track must give the backing track to Mr. Tully by Friday 5th December. Please put your name on them and clearly state if any edits are to be made to them. (Timings/ Cut offs) 
  • The results of the judges are final.
  • Best of luck to all competitors
