Welcome to Website for Craobhacha Rince Náisiúnta na hÉireann (The Irish Nationals).

The committee would like to thank all regional councils, teachers, associations, dancing schools, dancers, teachers & parents who attended or supported the 2014 Craobhacha Rince Náisiúnta na hÉireann.

This year’s event will be held in INEC & Gleneagle Hotel, Killarney on Thursday 14th, Friday 15th, Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th May, 2015. Craobhacha Rince Náisiúnta na hÉireann will be a secondary qualifying event for Oireachtas Rince na Cruinne 2016.

There will also be a Priomh Comortas for all non-recalled dancers and Irish Language competitions held throughout the weekend.

This is our 4th year and the previous three years were a huge success and we look forward to seeing all teachers, parents & dancers again this year so we can repeat that success.
