Margaret began Irish dancing in 1957. Bill and Margaret met in 1964 and were out dancing five or six nights per week including performing with the Sydney Irish Ceili Dancers. They married in 1970 and joined Sydney Colonial Dancers in the 1980s and Sydney Playford Dancers in the 1990s.
Irish dancing is their first love and since 1989 they have made twenty-one trips to Ireland, attending summer schools, dance workshops and Ceilithe, immersing themselves in traditional Irish dancing culture. Together they share their absolute love of traditional Irish dancing with as many as possible and have travelled extensively in Australia and overseas doing just that.
