Aine Cannon, 11, is a Year 5 pupil at Scoil Mhuire Gan Smal in Letterkenny.
A dancer under the guidance of Alison and Colleen Quigley, she has taken to the stage at feiseanna all over Ireland and Britain – as well as in the European Championships in Torrevieja in Spain!
And last month she bagged three gold medals at the All-Ireland championships in Killarney!
Proud dad Brian said: “Aine absolutely loves Irish dancing. She is always practising. It just means so much to her.
“We are so delighted that she will be competing in the World Championships.”
And Aine herself admits she’s really looking forward to it.
“Killarney was just fantastic. I was so happy,” she said.
“I’m really looking forward to going to Dublin for the world championships. It will be a dream come true.”
