In March, Jessica O’Hara (Year 9) travelled to Glasgow to take part in the World Irish Dancing Championship, along with her sisters, Aisling (Year 10) and Erin (Year 7), a wonderful experience for all three.
Jessica’s family was very proud and delighted to see her do extremely well in her age group. Out of 203 dancers, she was one of 50 to be invited back to take part in the set dance.
Jessica was eventually placed 44th in the world, 7th in the UK (excluding Ireland) and 2nd in the Southern region of England, having only started dancing four years ago and competing three years ago. Many congratulations, Jessica – a fantastic achievement.
