Aglish does it again in Celtic Style

The ever active community of Aglish, near Borrisokane, have over the past number of years worked very hard to enhance their community and are now getting ready to add another string to their bow.  This Saturday night, 3rd May 2014 they will bring Celtic Style to the Clarke Hall in Borrisokane.

Celtic Style are a group of people from various Comhaltas branches in Kerry, Tipperary and Kildare who have combined their love of Irish music and dance to create a traditional show like no other. The spectacular ‘back to basics’ show produced by Breda Cody and Anna Pegley from Chraobh Bheartla Ui Fhlatharta in Leixlip, Co. Kildare, features All Ireland Fleadh winners showcasing the best they have to offer.  Included in the show in Borrisokane are local dancers from Aglish, Ciara Duckett and Claire Starr. Ciara is a leaving cert student in Borrisokane Community College and Claire is well known in area.  With a mix of lively music, sean nos dancing, step dancing and the most energetic of set dancing, it promises to be a night to remember. The event is being organised by Aglish Old School Project with the performance taking place in The Clarke Hall, Borrisokane.  The night will also feature the very best of traditional talent that North Tipperary has to offer and if  ‘Britans Got Talent’ allows, the now famous Ollie Moroney from Ardcroney will make a special guest appearance with his Bush Dance.

Celtic Style Group AglishCeltic Style were invited to Maui,  Hawaii to celebrate St. Patricks Day and show case Irish culture on the Polynesian Island.  They performed nine shows over ten days to packed audiences with the Maui Times describing the show as a “breath of fresh air and the best show to perform on the island in a long time” .

By the time you leave the Clarke Hall, Celtic Style will reignite your enthusiasm  for Irish music and dance and the cover charge of €10 per adult and €5 for children/pensioners is well worth it. With an 8.30pm sharp start it would be wise to arrive early with doors opening  at 8pm as a packed house is expected.

Aglish don’t do things by half and is a hidden gem,  with its playground listed in the top 10 list of things to do in North Tipperary, the recently refurbished village hall, and the hugely successful Stepping Stones Feile  held on the August bank holiday weekend 2013.
