Michael Flatley, with Julia Heinrich (9), Justina Nowak (7) and Kenneth James (8), launches the Variety World Conference, which will take place from May 3-6.LORD of the Dance Michael Flatley yesterday lent his support to Ireland's hosting of the 2012 Variety International world conference.

The event -- to be staged in Dublin from May 3-6 -- will see three Irish people honoured for their humanitarian work.

It will be attended by 250 delegates from all over the world -- including some of the highest-profile people within the entertainment industry.

Mr Flatley is a staunch supporter of Variety -- and expressed his delight that the organisation had chosen Ireland for their prestigious four-day conference.

The dancer -- who shot to fame with Riverdance -- is currently pursuing business interests in the UK and US.

However, he said he relishes the chance to return to Ireland as often as possible and relax in his €50m mansion on the River Blackwater in north Cork.
