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.
