Harold Cassidy would be in his glory if he were alive to see his great granddaughters performing in Irish Dance competitions. All three daughters of Harold and Nicole (Fitzgerald) Kertes are involved in Irish dance in Mechanicsburg at the McKinley School of Dance. Hannah, Sydney and Isabella are the granddaughters of Mary (Cassidy) and Mike Kertes. 

Eleven year old Hannah Kertes who attends school in Cumberland Valley recently competed nationally in the Irish Dance solo in the Washington, DC suburb of Alexandria and took first place in her age group. She is now qualified for the spring competition in Dublin Ireland and then in World competition at Wexford, Ireland in June. Her sister, Sydney, took first place in regional’s in October and received the Bunghrad Award . She took 6th place in Nationals and is also qualified for the World competition at Wexford. This Saint Patrick’s Day should see a lively celebration at the Kertes home.
