Irish World Academy Lunchtime Concert Series

Wednesday Feb 24th  

Performing Arts Centre, Foundation Building 1.15 pm



Lunchtime concert featuring UL's traditional music and traditional dance ensembles.   

Cruinniú (meaning 'Gathering') and Céim (meaning 'Step') are the titles of two Irish World Academy outreach initiatives which have seen staff from all walks of university life engaging in weekly classes/sessions of Irish traditional music (Cruinniú) and set-dancing (Céim) each Tuesday Wednesday from 1 - 2 pm in music room B, on the lower ground floor of the Foundation Building.  These sessions are open to all, with beginners especially welcome.  The sessions are facilitated by a number of people within the group, as well as by some students and staff of the Irish World Academy.  Cruinniú launched an album of the same name in October 2007, the proceeds of were donated to St Vincent's School, Lisnagry.  The group also took part in a 'Wren Day' fundraising drive on the UL campus in December 2009, raising further funds for St Vincent's. New members are always welcome.
