A SEVEN-year-old had Irish eyes smiling as she won a dancing competition.

Rebecca Marshall was crowned winner of the north east regional championship for Irish dancing, at Newcastle’s Walbottle Campus.

Rebecca, pictured, of Otley Close, Cramlington, is hoping to take part in the world Irish dancing championships in three years’ time.

Rebecca’s dad David said: “We are very proud of Rebecca, who is a very bright and determined little girl, who through hard work and constant practice has achieved a lot.”
