I was very impressed with the way things were run this year. I've been going to the Oireachtas for a long time and this was one of the best run in recent memory. I loved the Twitter updates and the periscope, made it much easier to view the awards on the days we didn't have to be there. I also loved not having to fight the crowd to see the trad set recalls. Congratulations to the committee and volunteers who worked so hard, you did an excellent job.

My child is a U 10 prize winner who has been dancing for several years. If you are at a school where practices are closed (no windows and parents are not allowed in the room), how and when do you get feedback from your TC? Is feedback just given to the young dancer or do parents ever get feedback throughout the year? Are most classes closed, or can parents watch and listen? ID is fairly new to us and we don't know what is normal. Thanks!

I find it disappointing that women and men that are dancing professionally come back and dance at these competitions. Most other sports ,once you are a "professional" you aren't allowed back into comps at this level. No, there is no rule against it but 20 years ago there wasn't this many Irish dance shows either.

If after 7pm we are fined 200?? You receive the trophy at 715 due to traffic how is that fair? There will NO delay in the next recipient receiving the award. Just wondering why you are drawing a line in the sand and not extending the prior to the teachers meeting. We have sent the trophy with others in the past as we didnt dance till Saturday. I am worried that we will not make it in time again and the fees and time line are not helping working parents.
