Three Co Armagh siblings to represent Ireland at World Irish Dance Championships 2019

North Carolina beckons for Middletown trio who have enjoyed incredible success to date

Pictures show, Deirbhile Mack with her world championship winning team and teachers Mona, Dearbhla and Ciara Lennon, and Sorcha and Tighearnan Mack.

Three members of a Co Armagh family will be travelling to the United States next year to represent Ireland at the World Irish Dancing Championships.

The Mack family from Middletown dance for the world famous Scoil Rince Mona Ni Rodaigh.

And, between them, they have brought home an incredible 11 world ceili globesĀ  – top three finishes – over the past 10 years.

In addition to that, they have also secured multiple All-Ireland, Irish National and Ulster titles.

They will be hoping that good fortune will favour them in North Carolina next April.

Twenty-year-old Deirbhile Mack is hoping to defend the world title she won in Glasgow earlier this year.

Meanwhile, sister Sorcha (19) will be aiming to repeat the world title she gained in London in 2014.

Brother Tighearnan (15), a pupil of St Patrick’s High School in Keady, will also be aiming for more silverware with his team, whilst his sisters have both also qualified for the world solo dancing final.

A huge ‘good luck’ to the Mack family representing their county and country at the highest level!
