IRISH eyes are smiling on a group of girls from Gomersal Middle School.

The girls have formed an Irish dancing troupe and have held several performances recently, including at the Cleckheaton Christmas lights switch-on.

The group was formed by teacher Bernadine Sykes, who herself is an Irish dancer.

Mrs Sykes and the girls practised after school and recently performed at the Whitcliffe We’ve Got Talent competition, emerging as winners.

They have also performed in a school assembly and are keen to seek out new venues to perform.
