Are there any pics or videos from CRN majors? I'd love to see what the Irish Open looks like, I've only seen some CRN dancers at practice & a smaller feis! Do you have parades of champs?


Hi I have a bunch of pictures from the 2007 Irish Open, they are at www.barrylane.smugmug.com . . .

They are, mostly from my kids and their friends, of course. Last year it was at the Mansion House in Dublin as it was the 25th anniversary. This year it is at the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght May 1st through 5th.

We had a great time last year and are looking forward to this year!

'Solos are only permitted at mean grad and above'
You CAN wear a solo dress no matter what grade you are in I have been dancing in CRN for 12 years!!

^ you actually can't. i guess they changed the rule or something, but i have taken teacher training with some of the judges and danced in a recent competition and girls were told that solos are not permitted under grade 3 (mean grad)

The rule about solo costumes is 100% that only mean grad or higher can wear them. It was changed a good few years ago!

And also, please correct me if I'm wrong Celticfaery, but if you win first at regionals or worlds dancing in any level - no matter how many you competed against, you move to the next level.


If you win first in your Award at regionals, you move up to the next level only in the two dances you performed in the competition...i.e. ullmhuchán dancers will dance reel and hornpipe, so the winner will move up to mean grad in those two dances. at the irish open championships, the winner of an ullmhuchán award will move out of all the dances in that grade, regardless of which two dances they performed.

My teacher has just taught us a new heavy (hard jig) step after attending a workshop at the weekend. I was talking to her daughter and she said the dances were graded and mine was grade 3, but she couldn't remember the name of the Association who held the workshop, the only one I can think of with grades is CRN would I be correct?

What is the Lead-Around and Sidestep thing you do in the beginning of each step? How does it work?
Do you do it in the comparable Prelim level?
Also if your supposed to do 3 steps does that count as like your first two?

Thanks for the help!

I 100% RECOMMEND if your looking for CRN INFO or other Open Platform info to go onto the forum-
VOY.COM/226089/

Some CRN reps actually replied to my questions on there!!
It's hard(super hard sometimes) to find info on some of these organizations but that Open Platform Forum seems to always reply right away with great info!!
