Calling all would be, could be and should be SET DANCERS. We have been plodding away at our weekly set dancing sessions every Thursday night in Kavanagh’s Lounge but we now need your help. Thanks to the loyal support of our musicians, we still have live music every night with the exception of one night per month. However due to fall in numbers, we cannot continue without your support. If you think you would like to try this we are giving lessons from 8.30pm before the session starts at 9pm so please feel free to join us.
