Richie’s first introduction to Irish dancing was at the age of 7, when he attended a class at the Higgins Academy in Waterford, Ireland.

Since then, Richie has many accolades in Irish dance over the last 12 years, including All Ireland, British National, North American and World Championship titles. He has also won his regional qualifiers 11 years in a row.

Richie also enjoys Irish music as well as dance, and attended the University of Limerick to study the two, under the tutorage of Orfhlaith  Ní Bhríain and Niall Keegan.

Murphy’s Legacy will be the first international show that he will perform in and he is excited to be a part of this experience.
