Ceili Dance: Ceol Aneas Irish Music Festival 2017

Saturday 3rd June 2017

A Ceili (traditional Irish dance) is from the Irish (and Scots) Gaelic word for a gathering or a dance.

As part of the Ceol Aneas Irish Festival weekend, a Ceili Dance will be held on Saturday evening. Live traditional Irish music is provided by a variety of musicians and creates a lively atmosphere.

While it is helpful to have some experience in ceili dancing, you don’t need to know what to do before you get there.  The dances are called, which means they will be taught on the night so you will be able to learn as you go and is part of the fun. This is dancing at its best - a fun filled community activity and great exercise too.

Come on your own (you don't need a partner to join in) or bring your friends, family and children for a rousing good time.

Tickets at the door on the night - cash only please.

Everyone is welcome.
