Thanks to everyone who participated in, and attended, our Culture Night event. It was very enjoyable and a good atmosphere and that was down to all the people who were there.

We especially want to thank the musicians PJ Mongan and Francis Ward who travelled with Music Generation Galway City to be with us. And it was great to also have Davie Keenan and Annie Mongan. Everyone gave wonderful performances and the banter wasn’t bad either.

We were delighted also to have people take part in the open mic and heard wonderful songs from different traditions from young and older.

Earlier in the evening people were able to visit stands on tinsmithing, camps, flowermaking, wagons and watch videos on Traveller & Roma women and the history of Travellers and Roma.
