O'Rourke Irish Dance hosts 2nd annual Irish dancing competition
in Purchase, New York Saturday.

The second O'Rourke School Feis was held Saturday February 4th at State University of New York's Purchase Campus.  Competitive Irish dancers, teachers and families from the tri-state area and perimeter traveled to Westchester County to meet up with friends and for many, to test out 2012 Irish dance steps on a new stage.  Champion-level dancers showed up in droves looking for constructive criticism by adjudicators before heading to Dublin next week for the All Ireland Irish Dancing Championships.

Top Three results for girls and ladies in Open Championships are shown here with our thanks to Lu-Ann O'Rourke-Boyd, TCRG and Feis411. Full results will be available on FeisWeb soon.
