Having asked Bridie what her most memorable moment was – this was her reply; “Every time I see my pupils perform, is a memorable moment, whether it is their first class feis, or display, or competing at the Great Britains or at the Worlds. One former pupil is currently tasting success whilst touring the globe with Riverdance. I still get a wonderful feeling knowing they are all there because of me, that I’ve touched their lives in a small way”.
