General Announcements

Christmas Dinner,December 15: Order Forms Now Available

For the 34th consecutive year, we'll gather in mid-December for a meal, some tunes and songs, and the awarding of our traveling trophy. This year the event will be held on Monday, December 15, at Kieran's Pub in Minneapolis.

Reservations and pre-ordered meals are required, and the form is available here. For more information about the dinner, menu, prices, location, etc., visit our events page.

This is a tradition for not only our students -- whether the new ones who jave just joined us, or those who have been with us a long time, or even "lapsed" students -- but for our friends, family, and supporters is our annual Christmas Dinner. We regard this as one of our most important activities of the year, as it is a time to celebrate the hard work our gang puts into learning the language all year round.

Hope you can join us!

Yay, Laura MacKenzie!

Every year the Irish Music and Dance Association honors one individual for her/his contribution to the community, and this year it is the highly deserving Laura MacKenzie. Laura is a brilliant musician, master of multiple instruments, teacher, and longtime keeper of the Celtic music tradition in the Twin Cities.

Laura has also been kind enough to come along with Marty and Pete and Dáithí to play for us at our annual Christmas Dinner.

Laura will be honored on the evening of Saturday, November 22nd, at The Celtic Junction. Your $5 donaction goes to the IMDA educational grant program. More details at the Junction site.

Weather cancellation procedures
