Donegal's Irish dancing sisters on TG4 tonight

The Gillespie sisters, Ruth and Katie who appear on TG4's An Ril Dil. tonight, Sunday at 8pm

Tonight, Sunday at 8pm two Donegal town sisters, Ruth and Katie Gillespie will take to our screens on TG4's An Ril Dil.

The girls travelled to the RTE studio's in Dublin this summer to take part in the show that celebrates all forms and traditions of Irish dance.

Ruth who is 22, is the current under 25 WIDA Irish Open Champion and a two time silver world medalist and Katie who is 21, is the current U21 WIDA World Champion, so to say that dance is important to the girls would be an understatement!

They dance for Scoil Rince Tir Chonaill in Donegal town, which is under the direction of their older sister, Sarah Gillespie, so dance is most definitely in the family.

While the two girls love competing, they really enjoyed the opportunity to work behind camera and enjoy the performance side of their art form.

Tune in this tonight at 8pm to see how the girls get on.
