“Some say the very soul of Ireland is expressed most perfectly in the joyous exuberance of traditional music and dances,” reads the Hooley description.
“Others pine for the melodies and spring of the unmistakable music. But still more find that Irish identity is found intertwined in folk stories, which will be told for all to enjoy.”
In addition to the Hooley, the event features two different whiskey schools, which will impart in-depth wisdom on the flavours and tones of the Irish delicacy.
Get your legs warmed up for some jigs, and don’t forget to wear your #leprechaunbest because there will be prizes for best costume of the day!
