Irish Dancing World Championships 2012

Loop Pomp from Inishfree Irish Dancing Shoes

Our INISHFREE Irish dancing shoes are polished and ready for their performances of the year as April 2012 is one of the busiest months for competitions in the Irish Dancing calendar.

An Comhdhail are hosting their first ever World Championships this year in Citywest in Dublin and An Coimisiun (CLRG) are in full swing at their World Championships at the Waterfront in Belfast.

These events are a celebration of the success and appeal of Irish dancing and they serve to unite the World’s finest dancers under one roof.  Such is the large interest in these international competitions, that live streaming, photography and commentary is now in serious demand for friends and family unable to make the trip!

We wish one and all the very best of luck in the World’s this weekend.

 

 

TG4 Déanta in Éirinn

We were recently delighted to host TG4 – an Irish language station – to shoot the making of our Inishfree Irish dancing shoes in Cootehill for their upcoming documentary series entitled ‘Made in Ireland’.

As a four part series the producers were a 3 week road trip around Ireland, highlighting the best of  the goods and services that we have to offer, and no doubt we were only too delighted to be asked!!

Presenter Manchán Magan (who arrived in an impressive DeLorean!)  interviewed Mr Martin Whelan on the step to step process of how our Irish Dance shoes are made.

It was a great day for all and after a factory tour the team retired to our local pub for a session of music and learning how to Irish dance in Manchán’s brand new Inishfree Irish heavy shoes.

We’ll keep you posted when the programme gets aired!!!
