Dancer Eoin has world at his feet


WELL DONE to young 12-year-old Eoin O’Toole Car­rick, a 6th class stu­dent at Kil­macanogue N.S. who com­peted at the 2014 An Comhd­hail World Ir­ish Dancing Cham­pi­onships in Kil­lar­ney last Thurs­day April 17th. Eoin, who re­cently re­tained his Dublin Cham­pion ti­tle for the 3rd con­sec­u­tive year, was com­pet­ing in the Boys U-13 Cham­pi­onship.

He faced stiff com­pe­ti­tion from 23 of the world’s best dancers and placed 3rd in the over­all cham­pi­onship re­tain­ing the same spot he placed 12 month prior. This is such a great achieve­ment for Eoin, who broke his foot back in late Novem­ber and only re­turned from in­jury weeks be­fore these cham­pi­onships, show­ing great strength and de­ter­mi­na­tion.

Eoin dances for the Daw­son McDon­nell School of Ir­ish Dance in South Dublin.

All his fam­ily are said to be very proud of Eoin’s achieve­ment and also a spe­cial men­tion should be made of Eoin’s younger sis­ter Kim (age 9), who danced at her first World Cham­pi­onships in the un­der 10 team dancing and did very well.
