Dance troupe bring anti-fracking message to World Irish Dancing Championships

A cross-border dance troupe is poised to take the World Irish Dancing Championships by storm with an anti-fracking performance.
The Tahany Academy of Dancing is heading to London over the Easter break, hoping to bring its powerful dance drama to a global audience.
The central theme in the dance is of a rural community led by its farmers standing up to the threat of fracking and is entitled 'My Farm I Adore'.
The 20 dancers bringing the message to London, ranging from 5 to 21 years of age, represent communities on both sides of the border, coming from Leitrim, Fermanagh and Cavan, all areas where fracking has been proposed by Tamboran Resources.
The dance school is run by Kathleen and Jemima Tahany.
