The World Irish Dance Championship 2017 has finished on Easter Sunday in Dublin.

The World Irish Dance Championship 2017 has finished on Easter Sunday in Dublin, but not before two local dance stars took the floor in supporting large important charity event.

Cara Gaynor and Aideen O'Connell members of Scoil Rince Fingal have changed their pumps and hard shoes for the RNLI’s yellow wellies, in order to show their support for Mayday. It is the annual national charity campaign for collecting funds, that encourages people to ‘Do your bit, fund our kit’.

The talented team of Irish dancers that participated in the 47th World Irish Dance Championship, which was organized by An Coimisiún le Rincí Gaelacha, demonstrated their famous moves in bright yellow wellies right in the center of the city. That was made to encourage the public to contribute to Mayday.

The iconic yellow wellies, which have been worn by generations of crews to grab the deck in slippery conditions, still keep members of crews in safety and robust on rough seas.

Money that were collected during Mayday events will help to staff RNLI crew members, so that they will be prepared to meet the toughest conditions at sea. Its cost is € 2,168 to provide a lifeboat crew members with the essential set, which will be required during a rescue.

In Dublin, a D class lifeboat will be in sight in Grand Canal Square. While yellow welly pin badges will be on sale on Thursday and Friday, on 27 th and 28 th of April. It will last from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mayday badges also will be sold in Aldi shops on Monday, 1 st of May.
