Congratulations to 5th Year Lauren Bradley, who recently won the u17 Irish Open in Tralee. Lauren dances with Roscommon Academy of Irish Dance and has now qualified for The Worlds, to be held in Eindhoven in April 2020. She came 3rd in The Worlds last April and should be very proud of her achievements to date.

5th Year Áine Cassidy competed in the U19s section at the Connaught Championships in Sligo IT on November 27th. As a member of Shannon Academy of Irish Dance, she had a fantastic competition, winning the solo and team event. She finished 3rd overall in the Championship and is now looking forward to the All-Irelands which will take place in May.

1st Year Megan Flynn Kelly competed in the Leinster Championships. Megan, dancing against 80 other competitors, placed 6th in the reel, 6th in the hornpipe and 4th in her set dance. This performance saw her climb 4 places from last year, to finish in 9th overall. Well done girls. We wish all three continued success.
