Singing in Irish

Following on from their successful performance at last December’s Irish language Christmas concert, Ceolchoirm na Nollag in the Strule Arts Centre, the singing in Irish group will meet from 7 pm to 8 pm. The group is free to attend and is open to everyone, with new members especially welcome.  The singing in Irish group has proven to be an effective and enjoyable way of learning Irish.

Sean Nós Dancing

The popular sean-nós and set dancing class in Strule Arts Centre will also run for 12 weeks, from 6 pm to 7 pm.  This class is open to all levels of dancers and is a fun way to keep fit as well as being a very sociable activity. The 12-week dancing class costs £20 per person.
