We are home from a whirlwind week at the World Championships 2024 in Glasgow. A week that brings with it so many emotions, the highs, the lows, the laughs, the tears, but nothing is more important than the memories made with our MCGL family.
We couldnโ€™t have been more proud of every dancer who stepped foot on that prestigious stage and to see our dancers coming together from across England, Poland, Czech Republic, Hong Kong and Australia is something we will be forever proud of, you really were one team ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฟ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ฐ

McGL Hong Kong

McGL Hong Kong 2048 2048 Isabel Yorke

Following on from our announcement in October of last year with McGL Europe’s expansion into the Ukraine, we are super excited to announce that McGL Europe (established in 2014) will now become McGL Europe and Asia.

With immediate effect, McGL will now have classes in Hong Kong. This expansion will see McGL take over classes previously hosted by Goggin Stewart (Carroll) cementing the relationship with our Toronto based workshop which has now been in place for 24 years.

As a result of this expansion, Katherine Toong (TCRG) and Melissa McDermott (ADCRG) will now become members of the McGL teaching team.

With RCCEA’s expansion into Asia a couple of years ago, this amalgamation made sense. Most recently our dancers from both Europe and Hong Kong competed against one another and all the other RCCEA schools at their 2023 Oireachtas in Dubai, winning 5 Oireachtas solo titles, 1 winning ceili team and securing 17 qualifying places for Oireachtas Rince Na Cruinne 2024 in Glasgow.

This also provides an amazing platform for our European and Asian based dancers to attend workshops alongside our dancers in England, all sharing the love of our wonderful art-form.

Celebrating over 8 years of success in Europe.

McGL CELEBRATING Over 8 years of success in Europe.

Classes now held inโ€จCzech Republic, Poland & Ukraine


For over 8 years our McGL Europe contingent has been growing and developing, with classes across Czech Republic and Poland.

During this time we have seen an accolade of achievements from beginners working through their grades to Aishling Award winners, European Oireachtas Titles and Top 10 World Championship placings.

We could not be prouder of the progress our dancers in Europe are making and their achievements are a testament to their hard work and dedication.

Fast forward to 2024 which saw the exciting expansion of our McGL Europe family with the opening of our newest McGL branch – McGL Ukraine. This will be the first active CLRG dance academy within the Ukraine and we hope we can bring a bit of normality on what are still extremely difficult times for their Nation. We cannot wait to see what the future holds for our newest group of dancers.

As members of RCCEA, we are proud to host our annual McGahan Lees Prague Feis and CLRG Grade Examinations, welcoming dancers from all over Europe which always promises to be an excellent display of dancing. Check back here soon for details of our 2024 feis!

We are so proud of how far we have come and canโ€™t wait to see what the future holds for McGL Europe.

Classes now held in Poland (Warsaw, Krakow, Gliwice, Gdaล„sk, Jastrzฤ™bie Zdrรณj, Pobiedziska), Prague and Ukraine. For more information on our classes in these locations please enquire here.
