Our photo today is from the Strictly Come Dancing Bantry semi final on Saturday night in West Cork. I am sharing an action shot of Edel and Shane in one of the many beautiful dance moments that were part of the whole night. I was honoured to be asked to be one of the three judges on Saturday night and I was touched by the lovely atmosphere, the mighty dancing and the sense of fun present on the night. Well done to everyone involved!
