IRISH dancer Shauna Rock was so captivated by the scenery she couldn't help herself breaking into a reel at Ladies' View in Killarney.

Shauna's mum, Majella O'Dwyer captured her daughter mid-flight as she got a quick practice in ahead of her competition at the Comhdhail World Irish Dance Championships in Killarney on Friday.

Shauna, who turned 18 on Sunday, is taking part in the under 18 category of the competition.

The teenager from Swords in Co Dublin has been dancing since she was five and is one of about 3,000 competitors taking part in the event which will close on Saturday.

She and her mum were enjoying a trip around the famed Ring of Kerry to visit friends in Waterville when they stopped at the beauty spot to admire the view.

“When you have an Irish dancer in the family they can start dancing anywhere and I was just lucky that I captured her mid flight and with such an amazing backdrop,” Majella said.
