St Patrick’s Day celebrations

The Mansfield and Dukeries Irish Association is holding its St Patrick Day Celebrations at the Forest Town Arena again.

The festivities on 17th March will start in the afternoon and culminate in the evening with a local group of musicians and singers, The Dolan Brothers Band, performing traditional and contemporary Irish songs, ballads, laments and jigs.

Irish dancers from the O’Dwyer Academy of Irish Dance will perform in support of their forthcoming competitions.

The event is open to all and doors open at 5pm. Live music will start at around 7.30pm. The venue will close at midnight.

The association arranges a luncheon club for the over-60 at the Nags Head, Pleasley, every two weeks on a Tuesday, and it is available to new members. The club has excursions to the seaside and to other Irish clubs.

A series of events such as ceilidh dances, Irish history seminars, language lessons and Irish dancing classes are held to satisfy the social demand of local Irish families, in particular second and third generation relatives.
