Members provided live entertainment with traditional or contemporary Irish music. Traditional Irish instruments were played, Irish costumes were modelled, singers collaborated and dancers shared their Irish footwork.

We provided a fun (dress up) family oriented environment, with a range of ages performing. Our Master of ceremonies was an Indian actor who returned from Britain, spoke with an Irish accent, recited Irish poems and modelled military gear and Irish costumes.
