Who’s Got Talent’ in Community College

Published

on

Killarney Community College was buzzing with excitement this week as students showcased their incredible talents at the annual ‘Who's Got Talent’ competition.

With a mix of singing, dancing, comedy and other impressive performances, the event was a huge success, thanks to the dedication and hard work of everyone involved.
“Huge credit must go to participants, presenters, helpers, and teachers who contributed to making this event truly fantastic. Special mention to Ms. Joanna Hughes, Ms. Denise O' Sullivan, and Ms. Mary Fuller for their tireless efforts in organising and coordinating the competition,” said teacher Brian O’Leary.
“The competition was fierce, with eight outstanding acts vying for the top spot. Judges who were made up of both teachers and students, had the difficult task of choosing winners amongst the talented pool of performers. After much deliberation, the results were finally decided.”
Taking the coveted first place spot was Maya Basel, a second-year student whose captivating performance wowed the audience and judges alike.
Maya's talent and dedication shone through as she performed a Billy Eilish cover, earning her the well-deserved title of ‘Who's Got Talent 2024’ champion.
In second place were the dynamic duo of Mischa McCarthy and Wiktoria Gluza from Transition Year. Mischa sang and played piano while Wiktoria captivated the audience with her modern dance and interpretation of Mischa’s self-penned song.
“The atmosphere was electric throughout the event, with cheers and applause ringing out in support of all the participants from all students and staff. Each act brought something unique to the stage, showcasing the incredible diversity of talent within the Killarney Community College community,” added Brian.
Principal Stella Loughnane noted it “was a lovely way to round off the term,”

“I'm in awe of everyone who got up on that stage and put themselves out there. Not alone were we impressed by their various talents but their stage presence, confidence and aura on stage was truly remarkable,” she said.

“The annual event celebrates the talents students have that they don't necessarily get to show case to their classmates and teachers. They are all winners in my eyes."
