Ómós Martin Byrnes
The second annual workshop and céilí will be held in Cois na hAbhna, Ennis on Saturday 7th March 2009 in memory of Martin Byrnes who gave a lifetime of service to Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann and to Cois na hAbhna. The weekend will include a workshop with Gerard Butler and a céilí with The Four Courts Céilí Band. Gerard Butler and Brian Cunningham team up to teach their different styles of Sean Nós dancing on the Sunday.

Gerard Butler, who is a very popular instructor all around the country, will conduct the workshop. He is patient and uses humour to fill the difficult spaces in the learning process.

A set dancing competition will also take place for juvenile, junior and senior sets with a perpetual cup in Martin’s memory presented to the winning senior set. A perpetual cup will also be presented to the winning junior set and medals for the juvenile sets. The evening will conclude with a céilí with music by The Four Courts Céili Band.

Set entries please to Doreen Norris at Cois na hAbhna by Monday 2nd March 2009. For further information contact 065-6824276 or e-mail
