Sunday, June 1, sees Mayo’s biggest outdoor ceili - Dancing at the Crossroads - kick-off at 5pm at the junction of New Antrim Street and Tucker Street.
Local traditional group Rolling Waves, under the musical directorship of fiddler John Kilkenny, will start the evening off.
They will be joined on a specially constructed dance platform by students from the Cresham School of Irish Dancing.
Also performing will be John Kilkenny and Tom O’Toole, The 4 & 9s, Chris and Dave (the duo behind last year’s popular GAA anthem ‘Mayo for Sam’ ), Dessie O’Halloran (’Say You Love Me’ ), The All Star Ceili Band, featuring Stephen Doherty, and headline special guests, Leo Moran and Anto Thistlewaite (formerly of The Sawdoctors ).
The exciting line-up of musicians will be joined on the platform by world champion sean nós dancer, Liam Scanlon, along with his colleagues, Cathy Scanlon, Laura Ganley, Charlene Morrison, Sandra Ganley and others.
All events are free and a dance floor will be constructed on the ground so spectators can join in.
For those who are unsure about their Irish steps or want to brush-up on their learning of years ago, Mr Scanlon will be hosting a workshop in the Linenhall from 2 to 5 pm on June 1.
Admission is €10 and registration takes place on the day. Contact Liam Scanlon on (086 ) 394 1007 for more details.
