  Annual Ceilí Cruise and Welsh Set dancing Group

The annual ‘Ceili Cruise’ to Cape Clear Island which is organised by Skibbereen Set Dancing Group which takes place the last Sunday in June every year should prove to be an ‘extra special’ event this year with the inclusion of the Welsh Traditional Music and Dance group "Dawnswyr ar Daith” in the program. This group is comprised of experienced dancers from all over South Wales. The name of the group means 'Dancers Abroad' and reflects the fact that the team was formed to participate in festivals. The repertoire encompasses various styles of traditional Welsh Dance, including fair and social dances, along with clogging. The team is glad of every opportunity to share Welsh culture with anyone who's interested and is even happier to experience other cultures whenever possible." We are all hoping for a fine day so that the dancers can perform in the open air in North Harbor, many will remember the fabulous performance by the Mendip Morris Dancers two years ago. On a fine summers day there is nothing better than music and dance against the backdrop of the picturesque harbor and the comings and goings of boats and ferries. The Welsh group will don traditional costume for the occasion and as can be seen form the photos this should be a colorful spectacle. Of course there will be plenty of opportunity to participate with a repertoire of set and céilí dances suitable for all levels as well as a number of set dance workshops for those interested in improving their skills. The event takes place on Sunday 30 June next with ferries departing both Baltimore and Schull at 11am, returning at 6pm. Passengers embarking from Schull are advised to book their tickets online at as there are limited places still available on this sailing.
