It is great to see our member organisations not only putting on great events but also sharing them for others to see.
Gymnastics Ireland’s headline participation event – ‘The Floor’, took place for the third consecutive year on Sunday 3rd June in the National Indoor Arena.
The flagship display event comprised of 22 teams from 15 Clubs with over 400 gymnasts participating and a great crowd of spectators out in force to support.
For this event, Gymnastics Ireland brought the X-Factor to ‘The Floor’ and created a show with increased investment in stage lighting, video recording, sound production and a fantastic MC in the shape of Shay Byrne from RTE.
Four main Merit Awards were presented on the day by Gymnastics Ireland Chairman Ger Rellis. The awards showed special appreciation for some performances that stood out and celebrate participation, personal achievement, fun, friendship and teamwork. The awarded display teams were as follows…
- Best Costume: Gymstars GC
- Best Theme/Concept: Finesse GC & Carrigaline GC
- Best Choreography/Content: Douglas GC & the Display Squad from Arabian GC
- Best Entertainment: Cork Acro GC
Gymnastics Ireland has a resident media company Hello Deer Media who capture the events in memorable fashion without having to rely on parenbts iPhones.
The Floor was a proper show in every way and saw a wide variety of performances from some of the best display teams in the country.
A video playlist of all the individual team performances from this year will be released in the coming days in the Gymnastics Ireland website and YouTube Channel.
Attention now shifts to the flagship competitive event the ‘National Series Super Championships’ that will be held on 30th June & 1st July in the National Indoor Arena.
