Family Céilí at IMMA
Thurs 15 Aug

Join us for a free outdoor Family Céilí in IMMA Courtyard with brilliant live trad music and Céilí Caller Louise O’Connor who will put you through your paces. 

We will have simple two hand dances, a waltz or two and circle dances which will be suitable for all ages and dancing abilities. Music will be by Eibhlín Ní Bhaoighill and Séamus Byrne, who will have songs and tunes for all tastes. We will also have some sean nós dance performers on the day.  

Whether you’re tapping your feet to a reel or joining a céilí, Irish traditional music and dance bring people together, celebrating culture, community, and the joy of movement.   

Louise O’Connor is a fiddle player and sean nós dancer from County Clare and teaches set dancing at The Cobblestone Pub and regularly runs live band Céilí nights at the Teachers Club. She has been immersed in music and dance since the age of 7.  She has performed and taught at festivals around Ireland and internationally, including the London Irish Centre St Patricks Festival and Tonn Nua festival in Berlin this year. 

The Ritz Brothers
Sun 18 Aug

A Dublin based sound-good, feel-good, musical, theatrical band … with hats. 

The Ritz Brothers Café Theatre Band perform musical antics, from room to room, table to table, and courtyard to courtyard.
These theatrical troubadours have residency in Bewley’s Theatre Grafton Street, where they enchant their audiences with song, stories and theatrical charm.

Join The Ritz Brothers in the IMMA Courtyard, for a magical musical evening of surprises and stories from the juke box of your heart, where every song will stir a memory, and a new moment of emotion and laughter.
