Irish Night Gallery

The Felling Irish Association presented a fantastic event displaying the best of Irish Culture at the Holly Hill Social Club on Saturday 16th Mach 2019.

The highly talented Emerland Thieves band treated the audience to wonderful Irish music. The Kelly Hendry School of Dancing showcased the talents that have made them world champion Irish dancers.

The event was a ended by all ages from children in push- chairs to some of our more senior members of the community. A big thank you goes to the National Lottery for their sponsorship, the Committee of the Felling Irish Association for their hard work and especially to Des Costello the Chairman who unfortunately was too ill to see all of his hard work come to fruition on the night.

The feedback was tremendous. It was a great night showcasing the best of Irish culture.
