Molly MaGuires Party

Join Carrigaline and the Seattle Irish Dancers this Saturday evening in Molly MaGuires on 65th in Ballard from 9.00 to after midnight. Last time we played at Molly’s we had to clear the floor, there were so many people joining in the dancing. Bring a friend and come celebrate with us – do you need an excuse….)

Gt up the Yard!

  • Ould Triangle

Ould Triangle

Carrigaline plays the Ould Triangle in Greenwood Saturday evening January 12th at 9.00 pm. Come enjoy fine traditional music and song as well as witness the charm of the Seattle Irish Dancers.

Thanks everyone for a fabulous ceili on Sunday in Fremont at the Doric Lodge. The best thing about the new monthly ceili for us is that the children continue to learn and have great fun while immersed in Irish tradition and culture. I am adding some of the Irish language prompts to help people stay tuned.

Get up the Yard!!
