A Strictly Come Dancing charity event was held at City West Hotel last week to raise funds for a soft surface playground at Divine Word National School.

The event featured fifteen couples competing against each other and was a great night of fun and entertainment for the community of Rathfarnham to enjoy. Twinkle-toed duo Gerard Whelan and Elisa Dempsey, who looked stunning in red, were crowned the eventual winners.
