Rebel Acro, a team of 16 gymnasts – ranging in ages from 11 to 18 – came in the top three in the final of Ireland’s Got Talent.

The gymnasts – including Clonakilty’s Aisling Dooley and Grace Lyons – are all members of the Ballincollig Gymnastics Club, which was founded 30 years ago by head coach, Sandra O’Leary.

We were recently visited by Aisling and Grace at our studio in Skibbereen.
