Subject: AD’s need to be beyond reproach - see inside for more.
In reply to: Don't see what the problem is. 's message, "Yes this is true. No problem with hosting feis. The AD's dancers can't attend Worlds anyway." on 12:32:33 04/04/17 Tue

The current system where World/Major judges are allowed to host Feiseanna in advance of a major event erodes confidence in the system leaving it wide open to abuse. Why else do schools travel long distances - across a vast county - to support the Feis of a World Judge? It is simply to garner influence and favor for their school & their dancers. The impact may not be obvious, but where the decision is a marginal decision (as is the case for a lot of competitions at Majors), because of human bias, a dancer/school that attends a feis of a World judge will always get the “nod” over one that doesn’t.

Lets see if this school AD and the AD (King/O'Sullivan) that held their feis in January manage to rise above their natural human bias and remove politics from their judgement. Only time will tell!

As for the schools that blatantly seek to influence in OH and in other parts - shame on you. Your actions are deplorable, transparent and degrade this wonderful cultural activity. If you need influence politically, you have implicitly accepted that your dancers are not good enough to compete against the best.
