Anna Geary with Ryan McShane - "I hope he can handle me!"

Anna Geary and professional dancer Ryan McShane have been paired for Switch-Up Week on Dancing with the Stars.  

The Cork camogie star, who has impressed the judges with regular partner Kai Widdrington, said Sunday's show on RTÉ One would be "exciting but also nerve-wracking" as she dances the Viennese Waltz with McShane. He is usually paired with Erin McGregor on the show.

"It's a new way of learning," Geary continued.

"I've spent two months with Kai getting to know him, but now you have to trust someone new almost immediately."

Geary described her Viennese Waltz with McShane as her "most emotional routine to date".  

"It's going to test me as we need to get comfortable with each other fast!" she added. "But I'm looking forward to the challenge and the fun that lies ahead this week.

"I hope he can handle me!"
