The success of Fermanagh Irish dancers continued at the recent Irish and British National Championships.

The Gilmurray sisters, Chloe and Charley competed in the Irish Nationals held at the City West Hotel, Dublin at the end of June, and the British Nationals in July.

Charley competed against 128 girls at the Irish competition, beating off stiff competition to finish second.

Chloe was up against almost 180 dancers, finishing fifth.

This was a qualifier for the World Championships in Dublin in 2020 which both girls have qualified for, with Charley making her debut in the global competition.

At the British Nationals in Southport, England Charley was crowned Under 10 Champion while Chloe was runner up in the Under 12 category.

Proud parent Kerry said: "Mark and I are absolutely delighted for our daughter. All their hard work and dedication is definitely paying off.

"We would also like to thank the traching team behind them at McNelis Cunningham Boyle for without their time, dedication and effort with the girls these awards would not be possible."

And Irish Dancer who continues to excel is Belcoo's Colum Higgins.

He followed up his second place in the World Irish Dancing Championship with victory at the Irish Nationals for the second year running.

Coming up against some very tough competition Colum, who dances out of the McConomy Bradley Doherty Academy, outshone his opponents to pick up the Boys 14-15 trophy.
