My names Edwina Guckian from Drumsna, Co. Leitrim. Im am writing to you about my Sean Nós dancing group in the All Ireland Talent Show. Heres a quick bit of info about us.
 
Were called Sean Nós ar an tSionann and were representing Daithí Ó Sé and the West in The All Ireland Talent Show.
The 10 of us come from Sligo, Leitrim, Roscommon and 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 Years 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.
 
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.
If we win we want to give €10,000 of the prize money to Our Ladys Hospital for sick children, Crumlin.
There are quite a few very special children who attend my sean nós classes every week that would not be dancing with us if it were not for Our Ladys Hospital. We want to do it for those children and everyone who attends that hospital. They receive no Government funding so its a very worthy cause. Doing it for sean nós, for Daíthí, for our counties, for Our Ladys Hospital and FOR THE WEST!
VOTE SEAN NÓS 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.
 So if you could pass the word on to all your club members or publicise us in anyway we would really appreciate it.
 
Heres a link to a promo video i made including our performance. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VddYKGMG_p0
 
Thank you for your time.
