2018 Thorn of Clashmore
Saturday night 27th October was the night for a fundraising event on behalf of Marymount Hospice Cork and ARC House Cancer Services Youghal which raised well in excess of Five Thousand Euro for the good causes, the fundraiser held at the Old Still in Clashmore village consisted of 15 All-Male contestants dressed in drag competing for the title of Thorn of Clashmore. An auction was also held after the contest in the bar and the night’s festivities ended with a street race from the top of the Village back down to the bridge between Donal ‘Underpants’ O Connor and Wally ‘Wellies’ Prendergast.
Patsy Fleming was Master of Ceremonies and at 7:30pm sharp the style made their way to the stage to be interviewed. James Fitzgerald knocked out a few tunes as the participants made their way to the stage and Patsy put all the girls at ease with his softly spoken voice and thoughtful questions but some of the girls wanted a bit more action and poor Patsy was assaulted on more than one occasion on the night, as the night rolled on the 15 gallantly dressed competitors who showed up in a variety of fashion from hippie to elegant to gowns that should have been left in the press.
