Treble Reel Donation Update

We are so pleased to provide an update on the Treble Reel competition charitable donation. We had almost 50 participants in the Treble Reel competitions at the 2014 Gem City Feis. This allowed us to donate $450 to the Martin Richard Charitable Foundation. We appreciate your support of this deserving organization.

Prelim & Open Championship Schedule Change

***CHANGE to how the Prelim & Open Championship competitions will run on the day of the feis:

Due to the nationwide SAT test that will take place on the date of our feis, The Gem City Feis Committee has decided to change the competition order for our Championship Stages.  Competitions will run from YOUNGEST to OLDEST this year (due to the SAT test)  and Competitors will dance the soft shoe round first.

2014 Treble Reel Entry Fee Donation

All proceeds from the 2014 Treble Reel entries will be donated to the Martin Richard Foundation. The Treble Reel competition will take place during the lunch break this year.

Martin Richard was 8 years old when he was killed by a bomb at the 2013 Boston Marathon. His mother Denise and sister Jayne, an Irish Step Dancer with the Clifden Academy, were injured.
