At the Oireachtas and Nationals, the top five qualify for competitions of 20 or less. If there are only five dancers, all five qualify. After 20 dancers, add one qualifier for every ten or part of ten dancers who competed on the day. If there are 21 dancers, there will be six qualifiers (five for the top 20 plus one). If there are 31 dancers, there will be seven qualifiers.
One thing to keep in mind at Nationals though is that many competitions are split. While the NAIDC committee is permitted to split competitions as they see fit, they are NOT allowed to create additional WQ spots. To get a better idea of how many WQ spots there will be at NAIDC, add the number of who danced for each split together to determine how many WQ spots there will be total and divide between the two splits for an estimate.
Most years, the World Championships will be held. In those cases, if there are any World Medal Holders from the current year's Worlds that qualify for Worlds again at the Oireachtas, those WMH are "skipped over" and additional WQ spots are awarded. So, in a competition of 41-50 dancers, with two WMH who again WQ, there will be 10 WQ (five for the top 20 dancers, three more for each ten or part of ten after the top 20 dancers, plus two more because the two WMH who were skipped over. Due to no Worlds, this won't be a situation to consider for this Oireachtas.
WMH are not "skipped over" at Nationals since they would have already been skipped over at the Oireachtas.
I hope this all helps!
