Donegal Mary

 

I’m 18years old from Falcarragh.

My favorite hobby is dancing.

I’m currently a dancing teacher in Donegal I teaching Jiving, line dancing and waltzing. I love dancing and I love teaching. I went viral in 2016 Jiving and got over 1.2 million views and appeared on various tv shows and from that it inspired me to teach it. Dancing has always been my passion since I was 3 years old !

I’m also studying holistic therapy. My Mammy who passed away a few weeks ago was a holistic therapist so I’m following in her footsteps and continuing on with her business.

I also organize events and fundraisers for different charities. This year I had a team in relay for life and last year I organized a fundraiser in memory of my auntie and raised over €3000 for the Donegal Hospice. I was also involved in the Falcarragh festival for a number of years along with my dad organizing loads of different events / fundraisers and off course the festival too.

I would like to give a special thank you to the cope for sponsoring me.

I feel very honored and proud to be representing Donegal at this years festival.

I am so excited to meet all the Mary’s from all over and to make amazing memories!
