My Personal Message


I am a full-time student at Trinity College and an active member of the VDP Society. The Trinity VDP society hosts a kids' Christmas party every year in Ozanam House with the kids we volunteer with during the year so I know the amazing work they do. I used to attend weekly dance classes when I was in secondary school, however, I didn't keep them up when I got to college. Pity! I have many fears….If we're talking generally, I'm not the biggest fan of spiders, but with regards to this experience, I just hope not to trip over myself on stage! I hope to raise funds and awareness of the great project that is Ozanam House's summer youth programme and also have some fun along the way.


My name is David Kearney and I am a student in Trinity College. I remember playing ultimate frisbee in Ozanam House with my school when I was in transition year so it’s nice to see it from another angle. I have been involved in Trinity SVP since I came to college so enjoy helping out so was glad to get involved.

I have no dance experience, my uncle is an Irish dancing teacher and always tried to teach my stuff like the two step but I never listened. I hope to raise as much money as possible for the kid's summer camps and also to have a great time dancing while getting to know Máire and the other couples. There's nothing I'm very worried about other than maybe dropping Máire on her head during one of the lifts…HaHa!

Ozanam Come Dancing 2020

Date: 06 March 2020

Ozanam Come Dancing is the BIG annual fundraiser in aid of Ozanam House Resource Centre, a community centre operated by SVP in Dublin 1. This year, 11 couples have volunteered to take on the challenge. The show will take place on Friday 6th March at 7.30pm in Liberty Hall, Dublin 1 and will be hosted by television presenter and fashion designer, Brendan Courtney. Brendan will be assisted by our guest celebrity judges including Eilish O’Carroll and Katherine Lynch. This year, with your help, we will engage 280 children and young people from the north inner city on our summer projects in June, July and August. At this challenging time of the year for so many families in our community and with your support, we will give them a memorable experience in a safe, nurturing, yet fun-filled environment. Please support our volunteer dancers involved our BIG annual fundraiser, Ozanam Come Dancing.
