Hello and welcome
Rodeo Cats were formed in the Summer of 1999. It was basically started because there was an interest in Line Dancing in Kilkenny and nobody to keep it going. There was a group of 13 who came together and decided to get Line Dancing back on track in Kilkenny.
Line Dancing came into Kilkenny in 1995. It was based in Langton`s and was spearheaded by “Step in Line” which was fronted by Howard Dee and Skip Jennings. That came to an end approx. 3 years later. They were the first to run Social weekends and the venue was the Gleneagle in Killarney.
Our group banded together and decided to keep it alive in Kilkenny. We needed a name for the Club so we put it to all involved to put their thinking caps on and see what would come out of it. We needed a connection with Kilkenny and a connection with Line Dancing. After many names the name “Rodeo Cats” came into being.
