Gerard

My name is Gerard Hegarty and I am representing AIB in this year’s Ozanam Come Dancing Event and I cannot wait. The reason I got involved in this event is because I wanted to do some sort of fundraising but I didn’t know what.  I know people that work closely with Saint Vincent De Paul so I am very familiar with the great work that they do and I knew this was the charity I wanted to be involved in. The opportunity to participate in Ozanam Come Dancing arose and I found it too good not to. Great way to have some fun and raise some much-needed funds in the process.

 

Tori

My name is Tori Mooney, and I work in AIB. I heard about Ozanam Come Dancing from AIB’s involvement last year and knew it was something that I would love to be a part of! I would have had years of experience dancing when I was younger but after a year or two of not training I thought now was a good time to throw myself back in the mix and all for a good cause! I hope this year to make a difference and help raise as much as I can to help support Ozanam House in the great work that they do.

Sarah

Hi, I’m Sarah I’ve been working for SVP for just over 3 years now and I have seen the great work and dedication that goes into Ozanam House by the staff and volunteers, so I am delighted to be part of the event this year. On a personal level I am really nervous about getting on stage and possibly making a show of myself but at the same time, I’m extremely excited to perfect my Carlton Banks moves! Let’s hope we can raise as much funds as possible for this great service!

 

David

Hi there, I’m David! I am currently living and working in Omagh as a carer for Adult Learning Disability and have been coerced into taking part in the Ozanam Strictly this year by my better half who is from Dublin. Having seen the great work SVP and Ozanam House do, I am delighted to be a part of something so worthwhile and essential to the community. I am hoping that by the end of this we will have raised some well-needed funds and I will have found some rhythm and coordination in the process!

Áine

I’m very excited to be involved in Ozanam Come Dancing 2019. Ozanam House is such a fantastic resource and I’m delighted to be in a position to do my bit to help out. I work in the digital health industry as Head of Commercials for an Irish company, Two-Ten Health. I took part in a similar event 5 years ago, and after watching the recording of the show afterwards, I made the decision not to pursue my dream of going professional!  But now I hope to enjoy the amateur journey from start to finish.

 

 

Peter

I work as a sales representative in Symantec and having had the experience of being involved three years ago I jumped at the chance to do it again. I have some experience in ballroom dancing, as a non-professional of course and fundraising through dancing is great idea so I am excited to be involved again. I hope to win and have a lot of fun, meeting new interesting people and as long as I survive the judge’s questions after my dance I’ll be fine.

Orla

I was asked by a friend of mine to help raise funds for Ozanam House by participating in their Come Dancing Fundraiser. I live very close to the North inner city where SVP do their great work and I am well aware of the tough challenges the children in this area face. I work for a company called Global Vision as a retinal photographer. I have zero dance experience but I am always willing to try new things and I have no problem making a show of myself, so if I can raise money for a very worthy cause at the same time, even better. I hope to learn to stay upright in heels and if I could get some sort of rhythm into me that would be fantastic. If nothing else, I should provide some entertainment :-).

 

Declan

I work in Independent News and Media. Unfortunately, I have no dance experience and I have 2 left feet but I am up for the challenge. I have 2 colleagues who participated last year and they had a great experience and they convinced me to take up the challenge. I hope I contribute on a laughter scale as well as helping fund the Summer Camp in 2019 for a great cause. My biggest fear is that I will let my beautiful partner Orla down.

Olivia & Rory

Hi I’m Olivia and I work in property development and I’m Rory and I am a publican and own the Jug Pub on Francis St. We got involved in Ozanam Come Dancing through a friend who had taken part last year. We got married in October this year, and despite our first dance, we have no dance experience. We both have 2 left feet! For our first dance we literally just shuffled around the dance floor. Even though we can’t dance we thought it would be fun to do, and most importantly a chance to support a great cause. We hope that we don’t fall over on the night!
