The Conference is nearly over now after being held for one week and there are now two hundred people protesting the decision to end professional figure skating within Ireland. Parents of figure skaters, young woman and men in figure skating programs with hopes of being a professional figure skater one day and people connected to the Ireland Figure Skating Industry all protested the possibility of Figure Skating being banned in Ireland.

The International Skating Union did say the following earlier on this morning, “We now recognize that Professional Figure Skating within Ireland is something beloved by hundreds of people all around the country. We never realized that Figure Skating still had a loyal following in our country and with that said we have decided that we won’t be banning Professional Figure Skating in Ireland. This is all thanks to those who appeared before the ITS Headquarters and protested the thought of banning Figure Skating.”

Those protestors have now returned to their homes with a smile on their face, realizing that they were able to make a difference for those young skaters looking to enter the professional level.
