2.15 - 3.30  Céilí Dance Instruction

Resident set dancing teacher in The Cobblestone Pub Louise O’Connor has been on a mission to keep alive the céilí dances as a way for people to meet and build community, bringing a piece of the west to the big smoke. Lasta Dance means ‘alight’ or ‘aglow’ and relates to keeping the old traditions ’alight’ as well as to the glow that Irish traditional music and dance can ignite in people.
