   Longest Riverdance line-world record set in Rockland
  
 ROCKLAND, NY, USA -- The Longest Riverdance line involved 312 participants at the 35th annual Rockland County Feis and Field Games, at the Wayne Recreational Park in Stony Point July 20, 2008.

   Crowds cheered and clapped while hundreds of mostly young girls performed the Irish jig in an attempt to set a record for the single longest line of dancers.

   The previous record of 216 dancers, set in Dublin, Ireland, was meant to be broken, said William Lee, from Pearl River, organizer of the record attempt. (enlarge photo)

  "I thought it would be a great way to promote Irish culture and the feis," said Lee, 43, whose 9-year-old daughter, Brianne, took part in the event. "It's also just a fun time for all the kids who dance here every year."
   Thousands of Irish dancers from around the country competed at the daylong feis, Gaelic for festival, which was held at Anthony Wayne Recreation Area of Harriman State Park. (enlarge photo)

  "Everyone did an amazing job, it feels unbelievable."

   The event, sponsored by the Rockland County Ancient Order of Hibernians, is considered one of the largest in North America, said Pat Dwyer, chairwoman of the festival for more than 20 years.

 Previous world record: 216 dancers, set in Dublin, Ireland.
