We met up with teacher Meabh Felton and some of her pupils who were competing recently at the 3rd WIDA Irish Open on the 17th and 18th November 2012 at the Pillo Hotel in Ashbourne County Meath.

The McCarthy Felton School is led by Meabh who received  her TCRG in May 2012 and by  her mother Mary ADCRG .They teach in and around the Stratford upon Avon area of England.

Mary ,from Ireland originally has over forty years dancing experience and danced with the famous Rory O'Connor Dancers from Dublin.

Meabh's love of dancing brought her to County Limerick,Ireland to the University of Limerick where she  completed a BA in Irish Music and Dance in 2009 and graduated in 2010 with an MA in Traditional Dance Performance. In May 2012 she succcessfully completed her exams to become a TCRG , Irish dance teacher. Meabh is now dance tutor on the BA Irish Music and Dance programme  at the university and also lectures on the BA and video editing side of things.

Eight girls came over to compete at the 3rd Irish Open in November .Most of the girls have no Irish connections whatsoever and compete and enjoy the whole Irish dance experience . They compete at all levels and have danced up to European and World standard.They also take part in corporate shows,charity functions and perform in their own organised shows also. For more information about this or indeed any information at all contact them at their own web site  http://mccarthyfelton.wordpress.com/

While at the Open they were very pleasant and we thank them for posing for these photographs . They also allowed us to film them in an informal setting to help bring a taste of what they do to you, our audience . Please click on this link to see them dance and hopefully it will be a keepsake for themselves on their successful time in Ireland.
