Committee branch meeting of upcoming events March 2015

Branch Meeting
At last week’s well attended branch committee meeting once again the enthusiasm of our members was very evident. With a busy few months behind us and a hectic schedule ahead, progress on the various projects was reported. We had our plans for St Patrick’s festival which started for us at the Co Board event on Sunday afternoon and continued on Monday evening with the stage entertainment before the fireworks and then our usual involvement in Grattan Square and our float in the parade.
 The plans to host the French group from Alsace on the last weekend in April will be finalised in the next couple of weeks as well as the accommodation for the children and their teachers.  We will be providing a number of workshops introducing them to Irish music and culture as well as some joint events with our own members.  It was decided to have a registration evening for members who intend competing at Fleadh na nDéise.  This will be in Cuil na Sméar on Friday March 27th during the music classes.
  Our branch will host one of 5 regional song concerts in Cúil na Sméar Hall on Saturday May 16th. This will be the Munster provincial concert with the other 4 based at venues in Connaught, Ulster, Leinster and Dublin.  This is part of the annual Bealtaine projects promoting activities for over 55s.  Details of participants will be available shortly.  As we are hosting Fleadh na nDéise over the June Bank Holiday weekend details of entertainment, adjudicators and funding of the festival were discussed.  The collecting of sponsorship for the Tradfest and the annual fundraising draw will commence shortly.  There was good news for the huge crowd who have booked tickets for the trip to Riverdance with a good final deal, thanks to Mary Jean Tiimmins our Projects officer.  The revised price structure is being made known to members as we go to press.
