Felling Irish Association Supports Local Irish Dancing School Feis

       

The Felling Irish Association were proud to sponsor a trophy for the 1st Annual Kelly Hendry Feis, held at the Lancastrian Suite, Dunston on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th February. The Irish Dancing competition was open to schools from all around the world judged by an international team of adjudicators. There was a fantastic buzz of excitement throughout the venue as the place was bursting with competitors, parents, teachers and spectators from across the world. Cups and Trophies were awarded to the winners of each category across a variety of age ranges. The Felling Irish Association’s Youth Officer, 16 year old Rebecca Rutland, was delighted to present their sponsored cup to the winner of the Over 15 Intermediate and Preliminary category, Erin McLaughlin from the Boyle School in Glasgow. The whole event was a tremendous success and Kelly was keen to thank all who had made it such a momentous occasion. Further information and photos from the Feis can be found on the Facebook page, Kelly Hendry Feis.
