The Triquetra Award is an annual, perpetual award to recognise and honour an individual or group who has contributed to the Australian Celtic Festival and the understanding of Celtic culture.
Molly Armstrong has performed at the ACF as a member of Cape Byron Celtic Dance since the age of 7, amounting to an impressive attendance of 22 years. During those years, Molly has been an integral part of the performance team, not only as a dancer, but also as a choreographer and costume designer. Her creative and innovative routines led the dance team to win the title of “Australian Celtic Dance Champions” three times, in 2016, 2017 and 2018. Molly also won ACDC Solo Champion in 2016 and 2017. Molly displayed her interest and passion to support another initiative of the Festival when she entered and won the Australian Celtic Fashion Awards in 2018.
As well as dancing competitively in Australia, Scotland, England and the US, Molly has assisted with teaching for many years, qualifying two years ago as a Teacher of Irish Dance through the Australian Irish Dancing Association.
Molly’s life is consumed by her dancing and all the aspects that go with it. Her dedication and commitment to her students and their families to educate and provide opportunities for development through dance is impressive in a young person.
Molly is a true Ambassador for all things Celtic, with the Australian Celtic Festival at the pinnacle of her many years’ work and preparation. She is a positive role model and inspiration, displaying what the essence of the Triquetra Award is all about.
