“What a Culture Night we had here on Inis Oírr last Friday (September 23rd, 2022). Áras Éanna hosted ‘Cúirt Cheoil na mBan’ which involved a band of nearly 20 women Traditional Irish musicians, singers and dancers going from house to house playing sessions. A house in every village opened up for us and musicians and audience travelled together in Wanderly Wagon. We had dancing at the ‘Leic’ and finished up with a stunning concert at Áras Éanna. It was all live-streamed on our Facebook and Instagram (”
