Portlaoise Library recently hosted a number of nights to celebrate Irish music and culture.

On March 1 they welcomed the Gabrielle Lynam School of Dancing; Gaelscoil Phortlaoise (with their teacher Muinteoir Dominic accompanying them on guitar); Comhaltas Phortlaoise; Portlaoise Library Ciorcal Comhrá (who read some Irish poetry) and Old Songs of Ireland with Maureen Culliton.

Then on March 9 they had two further events – ‘An Sceáláiocht’ (story telling) with former staff member Máirín Scully and two groups from the First Class of Portlaoise Educate Together.
