WEllington Irish Society
Spring 2015 at the Wellington Irish Society
Spring is in the Air and as the days lengthen there’s plenty to do both indoor and out.
There has been a lot happening at the club since our June newsletter. The new committee of the Wellington Irish Society are committed to ensuring the Society continues to connect the local Irish community, friends and family and provide a great place for all things Irish. We have been working tirelessly on producing a strategy plan which incorporated your feedback by way of an anonymous survey and will present to members very soon- further notification will be sent regarding this.

Family Christmas Picnic
Due to the wet weather, the planned picnic and activities will move indoors to the Wellington Irish Centre, kicking off at 11am.
CEILI AT THE CLUB
Come join us for a few tunes and a ceili with some of Ireland's best musicians and dancers. Normally found playing in dance halls up and down the west coast of Ireland, they've finally made it to our shores!
Featuring: Stephen Doherty (All Ireland flute and melodeon champion); David Doocey (All Ireland concertina and fiddle champion); Pat Coyne (guitarist with Sean and Dolores Keane bands); and Andrew Laking (double bass). Plus special guest dancers: Liam Scanlon (World Irish Dance champion) and Charlene Morrison (lead dancer with Altan).
Doors open at 7pm. The music begins with an open Irish music session at 7.30pm, followed by a ceili at 8.30pm, and finishes up with a traditional music session led by David Doocey, Stephen Doherty, and Pat Coyne, plus special guests.
Bring a pair of soft soled shoes for dancing!
