It is with a sad and heavy heart that we announce the passing of Marge Dennehy. She and her  husband Dennis (whom passed in 2013) founded the Dennehy School of Irish Dance more than 50 years ago. She was an amazing choreographer and touched the lives of so many irish dancers over the years. She will be missed by all.
