A Message from Brian: “Dances are at the crossroads of all of the various communities within the Irish scene–musicians, dancers, spectators, socializers, drinkers–I’m always happy to help make a reason to bring these folks together.  Ní neart go cur le céile!”

Our wee pub will be open and you might just learn some Irish language while getting your cardio!
