LISTOWEL is set to become a set- dancing mecca next year as an annual Arms Hotel weekend teams up with the Gathering Festival.
The annual weekend, which was held recently, enjoyed a massive turnout with dancers arriving from all over the region over the three days.
The biggest set-dancing event in north Kerry, it is hoped to be even bigger next year.
"We're teaming up with The Gathering next year so we are hoping it will be even bigger than ever," Stepping It Out set-dancing club director Mary Philpott said. "This year's annual weekend, which was our tenth, was absolutely brilliant and Listowel continues to prove a fantastic location for everyone. The Arms Hotel put on a fantastic weekend too and people love coming here, overlooking the racecourse and the fabulous River Feale."
Such is the draw of the weekend that Mary welcomes return guests from as far as Italy and Germany to it each year. With the Gathering next year, it is unknown from where the dancers might hail!
