Getting Here ktdcshuttle

Saturday April 30, 2016; 3:00 – 6:00p

This Saturday, April 30, come and celebrate Irish culture and history. This free event will feature several artists showcasing Irish song, dance, theatrical performances and more. Enjoy the musical stylings of Grammy-winner Susan McKeown, the Murphy Beds, the Solas an Lae dancers and many others. An exhibition, Labor & Dignity: James Connolly in America, will also take place.

Hosted by CualaNYC and funded by the Cultural Immigrant Initiative Fund of the City Council, this is the first of dozens of cultural events across New York City now through June 2, commemorating the Easter Rising in Dublin – the turning point which led to Ireland’s independence from Britain. As a proud Irish-American, Council Member Elizabeth Crowley is humbled to recognize this anniversary and hopes you will join her.
