We're glad you had such a great time at the Irish Dancing competition, and an equally incredible time visiting your family in Ireland. There is no doubt that our country is so family orientated, and you'll even find that many communities here live together as close knit as a family!
As a massive fan of both Irish dancing and Irish traditional music, I loved reading your write up. Feel free to share any pictures or videos you took while at the championships!
