The 15th annual Canberra Irish Set Dancing weekend was held over the weekend of 11 – 13 October 2019 and attended by close to 100 people from around Australia. The weekend featured workshops with Margaret and Bill Winnett (NSW) and Matt Harriage (Vic), and three ceilis dancing to live music with The Friends Ceili Band.
The Embassy of Ireland has been a generous sponsor and supporter of the dance weekend in previous years, and was so again in 2019. The ISD group is very grateful to the Embassy of Ireland for its ongoing sponsorship and support.
