'Reely' big crowd for major dance event 13.11.13

AN estimated 14,000 people are expected to descend on Letterkenny for the upcoming Ulster Irish Dancing Championships 2013 (Oireachtas Rince Uladh 2013).
The event will take place from November 20 - 24 and will attract Irish dancers aged four years to 21 and their families from all over Ulster and further afield.
Letterkenny's stint follows on from Buncrana's successful hosting of the major cultural dance event in 2011 and 2012. Letterkenny mayor, Cllr Paschal Blake, said it was "an honour" for the town to host the competition.
"I extend a Céad Míle Fáilte to everyone...Letterkenny has a great range of facilities to cater for everyone and I hope that everyone will enjoy their stay in the area," he said.
County manager, Seamus Neely, added that the local authority was "fully aware of the cultural, social and economic benefits that such an event would bring to the community of Letterkenny and County Donegal".
The event is a Donegal County Development Board lead initiative under the auspices of Donegal County Council and is supported and funded by the Letterkenny Town Council.
The event will be held in the Mount Errigal Hotel.
