Hundreds of Set-Dancers to descend on Enniscrone

Set-Dancers from around Ireland and the UK will travel to the Diamond Coast Hotel in Enniscrone Co. Sligo this weekend for a special set dancing weekend in aid of Mayo Cancer Support Association. 

The weekend hosts a number of céilís with the Neily O’Connor, Duntally, and Johnny Reidy Céili Bands. The busy schedule includes workshops in Jive, Sean Nós, Set and Two-Hand dancing. The three day event finishes with a country and western dance with renowned singer, Pat McKenna.

Now in its 11th year, the weekend has raised over €10,000 for Mayo Cancer Support Association. The service provides support to those affected by cancer and their families at Rock Rose House.

The popular weekend is organised annually by Oliver Fleming, who will also lead the jiving workshop on Friday evening. The Diamond Coast Hotel has some special offers on room rates available. For more information contact Oliver Fleming on 087 6368834.
