We're called Sean Nos ar an tSionann and we're representing Daithi O Se and the West in The All Ireland Talent Show.
The 10 of us come from Sligo, Leitrim and Roscommon (with a blow in from Kerry!) and range from 8 - 26 years old.Between us all we have 6 all ireland titles, to world titles, an all ireland champion bodhran player and oireachtas sean nos champions.
On New Year's eve we took to the stage on the first of the live shows. We topped the Public vote putting us straight through to the semi finals in March.
Here's a link to our performance
On March 13th we take to the stage again to battle it out with 4 other contestants in a bid to win the All Ireland Talent Show.
We want to give €10,000 of the prize money to Our Lady's Hospital for sick children, Crumlin.
There are quite a few very special children who attend my sean nos classes every week that would not be dancing with us if it were not for Our Lady's Hospital. We want to do it for those children and everyone who attends that hospital. They receive no Government funding so it's definately a worthy cause. Doing it for sean nos, for Daithi, for our counties, for Our Lady's Hospital and FOR THE WEST!
VOTE SEAN NOS AR AN tSIONANN MARCH 13TH RTE 1, 6.30PM.
The public vote is what makes the difference so we need every vote we can get.
Thanks for the support
Edwina and Sean Nos ar an tSionann :)
