Producer Killian Fitzgerald said, “I’m absolutely so proud of the Limerick audience who came and supported the competition and the talent that was on display this year, everyone was a winner in my eyes”.

The talent on display this year came from dancers, magicians, singers and Limerick’s Hands in Harmony Community Deaf Choir who won Best Variety Act 2016. This year’s overall winner Orla Smith wowed the audience with her rendition of ‘On My Own’ from the musical ‘Les Miserables’ and received a €500 cash prize on the night.

Enable Ireland provides free services to adults with disabilities and their families from their centre in Quinns Cross, Mungret. They work in partnership with those who use their services to achieve maximum independence, choice, and inclusion in their communities. Enable Ireland focuses on the person, not the disability. They believe that access, inclusion, and equality are basic rights for all people and assert that society must recognize and accommodate individual needs.

The Limerick’s Got Talent 2016 crew are always on the lookout for more helpers and local businesses to get involved with the running and the lead up to every event that takes place for the competition which is now in its 8th year.
