European Oireachtas

McGL Hong Kong

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.
