Carla comes from the village of Caledon in Co Tyrone.
Her first love is dance. She began at 5 years of age and hasn't stopped dancing since! Before studying Journalism in Galway, Carla spent three years on a world tour with Riverdance. A World champion dancer, Carla has performed at the Pyramids in Egypt, on the Great Wall of China and in front of 80,000 people at the opening of the Special Olympics. She also danced for Queen Elizabeth II during her visit to Ireland in 2011.
