There’s the Mayo Ball, an Irish dance competition, Mick Moloney’s concert at St. Malachy’s, a tribute to Duffy’s Cut, an event from Celtic Brittany, and two Irish officials will be in town this week, including the new Irish Minister for the Diaspora (that’s us).
Happy Samhain! Wear your costume to Saturday’s Halloween Beef-and-Beer fundraiser in Havertown for the Philly St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Check out what’s coming up in the next few days.
This week,the Cavan Ball takes place, a unique guitar trio from Dublin is performing at Longwood Gardens, singer Mary Black is in Phoenixville, and the Glenside Gaelic Club is inviting you to “wine and dine” with them. More inside!
Lots of Duffy’s Cut events to choose from, plus a trio of humorous plays by Irish playwright Lady Augusta Gregory, some John Byrne Band music, ceili dancing, and yet another Irish play, this one more contemporary, by Conor McPherson.
The brand new GAA fields in Limerick will finally get broken in by a day of games on Saturday. Irish freedom will be the topic of an AOH Div. 87 symposium, while the author of a new book on the collusion between British regiments, the Royal Ulster Constabulary and illegal paramilitary groups will be speaking mid-week at AOH Div. 39. Two top trad performers are also in town.
Big doings this Sunday at The Irish Center–the end of the fundraising campaign celebration, all day! Big doings in Bethlehem too–Celtic Fest is this weekend. And look for the opening of the new GAA field in Limerick on October 4!
