York Irish Association Cultural Event with the Irish Ambassador

logo2The York Irish Association will be hosting an Irish Culture Night at the York Barbican on Saturday, 19th September at 7.00pm. The event will feature a variety of performances including Irish singer and songwriter John Spillane as the headline act.

As well as John Spillane there will be an Irish dancing performance by the O'Connor Academy of Irish Dance and music performances from Paula Ryan, Steve Campbell and regulars from the York Irish traditional scene. We are also honoured that the Irish Ambassador to Britain, Daniel Mulhall, will give a talk on the night. Elly Fiorentini from BBC Radio York who herself has Irish ancestory will be the MC for the night.
Tickets for the event are on sale on the Barbican Centre Website and at the venue and cost just £14! Alternatively you can just email us at York Irish Association saying that you would like to attend and we will get the tickets to you. All proceeds will go towards making sure the York Irish Association can continue to make a difference to the community in York in 2016.
