United Irish of Dayton’s Celtic Festival
McGovern Irish Dance has been performing at this festival from the very first year it started.  Many of our own MID parents are highly involved with the creation,  organization and running of this amazing festival.    We love having this opportunity to share our love of Irish dance with you and hope you come out and see us perform at the Key Ads Stage.   Our dancers love a lively crowd, so be sure to clap and cheer as loud as you want for our adorable, talented and artistic dancers.
