WHEN we caught up with the artistes set to take centre stage for Killarney's first-ever sing-off, we were highly impressed. A whole host of well-known faces will be gracing the stage of the INEC this Thursday, August 25, and the audience is promised a dazzlingly entertaining night out.

Timing and wiggles were being perfected over the past few weeks and organiser Jim Morris informed us today that all the superstars-in-the-making are set to deliver a show to remember and one that will have us looking at the artistes "in a whole new light"!

The event is being organised by family and friends of Jim's brother Anthony Morris, Killarney, who is being treated for chronic Lyme disease in the United States. “Anthony’s doctors’ big concern has been an obvious deterioration in his cognitive function and metal sharpness,” said Jim. "He has been really struggling to communicate, getting confused and lost for words. This is a result of the Lyme infection affecting his brain and fighting back against the antibiotics.”

Anthony’s fiancée Margaret and daughter Roisin are also have become accustomed to the support required of them every day, added Jim. “Seeing the outreach of love and support during this time through the different fundraisers keeps Anthony and his family in high spirits and drives him on to win his own battle,” he said.

Tickets for the Killarney Sing-Off can be purchased from Who’s 4 Shoes, 74 High Street Killarney, Charlie Foley’s, 101 New Street, the INEC box office, Gleneagle Hotel and the K Town Bar on Beech Road.

You can also contact a member of the Morris family or Jim on 086-0893466.
