My mum Eliza Conway was from Co.Wicklow, Dunlavin, and she told me when she was a young girl, she did Irish Dancing, and won Medals etc., for her dancing. this was a very long time ago, in the twenties. I never thought to ask her when she was alive, about her dancing. she learnt me to dance as a young girl, and to speak the.Irish language. but sadly all i can do now is count to 6.! Anyway what I want to ask is "Where or how could I find out the records of the dancing from the twenties, Did they keep records of the people who won cups and medals etc., I am doing the family tree, and should love to put all the info into my book. " I hope that someone will answer me.
I live in England. way down in the south west.
