Members of Clanbrassil Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann have danced their way to a top spot at the All Ireland Fleadh

The girls who all perform in the Ceili Dancing competitions recently took part in the Co. Armagh Fleadh, held in Lurgan at the end of June.

They won their way through the Ulster Finals held in Dromore, Co. Tyrone and will now head off to Sligo this weekend to compete with dance teams in the All-Ireland competition.

The group consists of Edel Oldham, Teresa Toman, Marie McCorry, Mairead Morgan, Fiona Vernon, Fionnuala McCorry, Ciara McConville, Una McMahon, Anne Breen, Caitriona Breen and Roisin Breen.

Fionnuala McInerney, who coached the team, speaking to the ‘MAIL’ said, “Over the past few weeks all of the girls have worked very hard and put a lot of effort into making their routine work. On behalf of everyone at Clanbrassil we wish them all the best in Sligo.”
