Dó Cairde School of Irish Dance
Middletown, DE and West Chester, PA Irish Dance School

Dó Cairde (pronounced doe car-jah) is gaelic for "two friends". Maureen Frail and Kathy Hanley, ADCRG encourage the students to enjoy and understand the art and culture of Irish Dancing. They believe that while dancing can be competitive, it should also instill a sense of teamwork and the ability to learn from mistakes. Maureen and Kathy hope that the students of Dó Cairde will develop friendships that will last a lifetime.

Classes are held in Middletown, DE. and West Chester, PA. If you're interested in Irish dance, please check the attending classes, tuition and fees and FAQ (frequently asked questions) pages.

Please email the school for class availability, or if you are interested in having Irish dancers provide entertainment for your wedding or other special event.

The final schedule for MARO is now available. This will help parents in determining when they may be available to volunteer (see below for more info).
The Coyle Feis and Feis Culkin have both closed registration.
The host hotels for the Mid-Atlantic Oireachtas are completely booked as of now. If you plan to stay but have not yet made a reservation, there are other hotels in the immediate vicinity of the Marriott.
Lots of photos have been added to our Do Cairde School Parents Facebook Group! Click here to request to join. It's a great place to ask questions of the more "seasoned" parents about feis registration, what to expect, upcoming events, etc.

Parent Volunteers

The MARO organizers are asking that each school provides at least 3 parent volunteers over the weekend. WE REALLY need your help in this matter. Below are the links for that parent volunteer slots for raffles, dress shop and journal sales.

The weekend would not be successful without the help of the parent volunteers and we can't thank you enough!

Any Questions, please email Heather McElligott Sparks at irldance@gmail.com.
