Muckross House Dance Scholarship

The Trustees of Muckross House, Killarney, Co Kerry, generously donate a scholarship which is available to students of the MA in Irish Traditional Dance Performance programme at the University of Limerick’s Irish World Academy of Music and Dance.

Dr Catherine Foley (Course Director MA Ethnochoreology and MA Irish Traditional Dance Performance programmes at UL) has been instrumental in setting up this Scholarship through her links with Muckross House since 1980.

The recipients of the scholarship for the academic year 2012/13 are Michelle Enright from Limerick and Betlem Burcet from Girona, Spain. This is the ninth year that the Trustees of Muckross House have awarded this scholarship to the MA Irish Traditional Dance Performance programme.
