Last year Castleisland AFC’s running of Lip Sync Battle was one of the most talked about local events of the year.

A capacity crowd filled Castleisland Community Centre last April as 11 acts battled it out to be crowned Lip Sync champions.

Freddie Mercury’s and Shakira Steve wowed the crowd and were crowned winners on the night.

Astro Turf Pitch

The event raised vital funds for the joint Castleisland AFC and Castleisland Community College All Weather Astro Turf Pitch Development.

Castleisland AFC is delighted to announce that a second Lip Sync Battle has been given the go ahead for this coming March and an information night is being held upstairs in the River Island Hotel on Wednesday January 10th at 7.30pm.

Four More Acts

“At the moment there is space for about four more acts to participate so we are calling on any performers, club members or parents of underage players to come along to the information evening and put your name forward to take part in the event,” said club PRO, Neil O’Sullivan.

“Last year all 11 acts enjoyed the whole experience from start to finish and this year will be no different.

“This running of Lip Sync Battle will be the final push needed to begin development on the Astro Turf Pitch as we draw closer to the total needed to begin the process.

A Huge Benefit

“The pitch will be a huge benefit to the whole community as it will be available to all clubs to use all year round and it is a badly needed facility in the town.

“Last year we got tremendous support from the local community and businesses so we hope that with their continued support this year the development can get off the ground early in 2018,” said Neil.
