Gradam award presentation

Jan Berne, Maureen Whelan and Brendan Tiernan were just honoured with local recognition of the Gradam Award, which they were presented at Philadelphia this year. Jan Currie-Henderson made a heart warming speech outlining each of their contributions to Irish Dancing in Australia and they were each presented with a small token of appreciation.

It is only when one hears about this history that one can truly appreciate the commitment and hard work put in by teachers over 50 years.
