Troupe Performances

Our troupe of dancers regularly perform at events across the region from St Patrick's day parades to weddings and corporate events.  

If you are interested in hiring the troupe, we can tailor our performance to meet the requirements of your function whatever the size. 

Please contact Kate for more information.


"The O’Malley School of Irish Dance attended our Black Tie Ball at the Holiday Inn Filton-Bristol last week – they were a fantastic opening to the ball and really kicked things off with a bang! The dancers were fantastic and were a really special addition to the night.Thanks"

"We booked the O'Malley Dancers to perform at our St Patrick's event in Bierkeller, Bristol. They were unbelievable. We haven’t stopped receiving requests to book them for next year! The dancers were professional and really good on stage. We'll definitely be booking them again…"

Big Days Team


"Bristol Rotary Club are delighted that they asked the O’Malley School of Irish Dance to appear as part of their Concert for Senior Citizens at a packed Colston Hall on a Sunday afternoon in October 2013. The children were absolutely marvellous – they were so enthusiastic about taking part and they looked splendid in their beautiful costumes. It was delightful that the troupe included children at different levels of ability, some quite minute, but all fired with an obvious love of their dancing. Their finale was every bit as good as anything River Dance could offer. They wowed the audience and I cannot recommend them highly enough."

"'We were delighted that Kate O'Malley and her troupe of young dancers came to our event to showcase their talents. Our event was particularly memorable as it was a European championship and the troupe did some wonderful Irish dances that gave a flavour to the Europeans of Ireland's wonderful sounds and movement. We were particularly thrilled that they took it upon themselves to dress up in our team colours. A wonderful night made very special by the girls..'!"

"The O’Malley School of Dance was the highlight of our wedding. Kate and the troupe of dancers were fantastic. All our guests loved it and commented on how good it was. Thank you so much for adding to the special memories of our day!"

Jo & Darren


"We wanted to say a massive thank you to your Irish Dancers on the night of the event. Each and every one of them was absolutely amazing and all behaved so well back stage. The comments we received on our evaluation sheets about the Irish Dancers were all extremely positive and most couldn't believe the level and standard the girls had at such a young age. So please, if you get the chance, give them a big thank you from me and the group at Downend. Also, thank you so much to you for being able to organise it."

Downend Charity Event


"You were wonderful. You made the evening for us, absolutely.  Thank you so much for agreeing to come and entertain us, we were all so impressed by the expertise shown even by the little ones, and you made a tremendous spectacle.  Your costumes are all so beautiful too.  Everyone, without exception, thought you were all marvellous. Please pass on our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to everyone involved.  My very best wishes to you all.  Thank you again."

"'Kate O' Malley Runs a very succesful Irish dancing group here on a Saturday morning at Emersons Green Village Hall. It has been a delight to see the progress that the group has made and they have had great success in competitions. A very energetic and successful group here at Emersons Green Village Hall.' "

"The troupe of Irish dancers who performed at the Harbourside festival on Bank Holiday Monday looked charming in their attractive costumes.  The older members danced with great skill and grace, and all the younger ones performed with enthusiasm and obvious enjoyment.  The event was much enjoyed by the spectators, and the display was a tribute to the dedication and professionalism of their teacher."

Bristol Irish Society has been building up a relationship with The Kate O'Malley School of Irish Dancing for the past two or more years.     Kate's young and thriving Dancing School has performed for the Society for the past two years at our St. Patrick's Week-end Celebrations entertaining audiences at The Council House and St. Bonaventure's Parish Hall. We have found them to be reliable and entertaining. For such a young Dancing School they are progressing very well and their membership is ever increasing.

We will certainly be booking the school to entertain us again at another function and would like to take this opportunity to wish Kate every success for the future.
