McMahon Irish Dancers win big — again!

posted by Philip Anselmo in entertainment, McMahon, Irish dance.

Congratulations are in order — again — for everybody's favorite Irish dancers: the young ladies and gentlemen of the McMahon School of Irish Dance.

On July 12, dancers from the McMahon School of Irish Dance competed at this year’s Rochester Feis (pronounced fesh), along with 1200 others from schools in the United States and Canada.  Long hours of practice paid off for the McMahon dancers, who brought home 60 medals, including 17 first place awards.

Binghamton will host the Southern Tier Feis in a couple weeks on August 16. In the meantime, The Batavian hopes to get over to the McMahon dance studio here in Batavia to capture some of the action on video, so be sure to check back with us for that.

Visit the McMahon School's Web site for more information about enrolling in classes or learning more about the art and sport of Irish dance.
