Kíla Kirby

Age: 17

Hi! I’ve been really lucky to grow up in a community where performing and creativity is encouraged and supported. I’ve had music and dance around me all my life. I’ve been an active member of Bardic Theatre in Donaghmore performing lead and ensemble roles in musical theatre productions including Matilda, Mary Poppins and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Loved being Mary Poppins! I have achieved Advanced 1 Tap, Advanced Foundation Modern and Intermediate Ballet standard with the British Theatre Dance Association at the JLM Dance School, and can’t wait to compete and represent Northern Ireland in the Dance World Cup in Burgos, Spain in July 2021 in the Solo Song & Dance and Solo Tap competitions. Wish me luck!
I have represented my local GAA club in Scór na nÓg Ballad singing competitions, reaching the county final in 2019.
I play Gaelic football for my local club in Donaghmore at U16 and Minor levels, and played for the Co. Tyrone U14 team. On-screen credits include a Drink & Drug Awareness campaign for PSNI…but hope to add to that soon!
