Trip to Wales

Trip to Wales

A trip to the CRN UK Championships in Swansea Wales was recently organised by the Mc Cartin SD. A group of sixty two people consisting of dancers and parents departed Drumreilly Community Centre destined for Fishguard Harbour. Staying in Swansea City Centre, the group had the opportunity to take in some sightseeing, shopping, and a trip to LC Indoor Water Park and a full day of competition! While the majority of competitors were UK based, a large number of Irish competitors made the journey which resulted in strong competition for all those competing. Following the event a grand total of eighty four awards including eighteen gold, twenty- five silver and forty one bronze were collected by the McCartin SD.
