Irish dancers bring home silverware from London competition

A pair of young dancers added to their school’s trophy haul at a competition on Saturday.

The Glendalough School of Irish Dancing in Windsor was set up in 2014 by Fiona Havord.

Two girls, Anna Wadley, 10, and Ava-Grace Kersen, seven, travelled to the City of London Feis competition in Bethnal Green.

They both came away with two first places and moved up a level in some of their dances.

Their new trophies add to the host of awards the school has won in its limited spell of competing.

Fiona is a social worker in Maidenhead and started dancing herself 25 years ago.

The school has grown since starting and now has about 20 dancers.

The 31-year-old said she hopes the school continues to expand and more pupils are able to compete at the next feis in May in Hemel Hempstead.

She added: “They do so well at the competitions even though they have only done it for a year or so and I’m really proud.”
