Stepping out in style for the Center.


The Irish Arts center presented the New York City Irish Dance Festival 2003 at Pier 63 on Sunday, May 4. There were performances, workshops, discussion forums, films, music & dance workshops, music seisiúns, and set and céilí dancing accompanied by live music. Taking part were Donny Golden, Mick Moloney, Kathleen Collins, Jo MacNamara, Geraldine Bergin, Darrah Carr, The Niall O’Leary Irish Dance Troupe, Jerry Mulvihill, Nial Mulligan, Louise Walsh, Clayton James, The Lynch-Mulvihill School of Irish Dance, The DeNogla School of Irish Dance, Bill Ochs and more. There was also Irish food, dance and craft vendors, and a fine time was had by all. Great credit is due to the Irish Arts Center, which under the direction of Pauline Turley is doing a stellar job of promoting Irish culture. ♦
