Kerry natives return to dance school


Kerry natives and Riverdance dancers Patrick O’Mahony from Ballylongford and Tomás O’Se from Dun Chaoin went home to visit the Irish Dance School they both attended as boys – Rinceoiri Na Riochta in Tralee for a visit last week. They chatted reminisced and danced with their Teacher, Jimmy Smith and with Teachers Honor Flynn, Triona Breen, Miriam O’Sullivan. Patrick and Tomas spent time passing on some of their dancing skills and techniques to the young pupils and urged them not to give up on their dreams. Neither Patrick nor Tomás ever thought that they could be dancing and travelling the world with Riverdance but they are! The visit was ahead of Patrick and Tomás performing in Riverdance at at the INEC Killarney from 12 -16 September.
