Its Sunday Ceili time again. Bring your dancing shoes and your friends. Carrigaline and Seattle Irish Dancers invite you to join us for another fabulous cultural event. Irish dancing, Irish language, great music, food, lots of food, safe place for children, free parking….
Note: The image for this month is an old black and white of the Chieftains with Carrigaline performing at the Opera House in Seattle a few years ago. Sad to say, two of the Chieftains have passed on but their spirit lives on in Irish music and dance. O thuaidh! We had a good time playing and dancing when the Chieftains were in town.
