The last major Irish dancing championship of 2011 and the second oldest major Irish dancing championship in the world, the Great Britain Irish Dancing Championships were hosted by the Southern England Regional Council and took place at the Butlins Resort in Bognor Regis Saturday through Monday.

Reels, slip jigs, hornpipes and treble jigs were performed on stage with live music to determine those Irish dancers who qualified for the third and final recall round. During the recall round, Irish dancers scoring in the top half of their age group danced individual contemporary sets. Adjudicators from all over the United Kingdom and the United States traveled to Bognor Regis to select the very best Irish dancers from among all the competitors. ADCRGs Doreen O'Connor, Finbarr Conway, Brendan Lynch, Anthony Murnane, Mary Kay Heneghan, John Carey, Marie McGuigan, Ann Byrne Gibbons, Gerard McQuaid, Margaret Cleary, Liam Harney, Margaret Robinson, Mona Roddy, Kathleen Murray and Russell Beaton surely had their work cut out for them with the level of dancing exhibited on three stages.
