Swinford Culture Night 18th September 2015
Swinford Culture night was held last Friday night in the Cultural Center Swinford as part of the national culture night celebrations. This is the 10th year of Culture night and I think the first one held in Swinford. Culture Night is an annual all-island public event that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts.
There were many local groups taking part on the night. We really have so many talented kids in our local community. They are a credit! Unfortunately I missed the first couple of performances as I was late getting to the event. I did still manage to record over an hour and a half of footage! Here’s some of the video that I’ve uploaded so far.
Here is Laura Cairns, Sarah Toner and David Friel Irish Dancing.
Here’s Meabh Hyland playing the fiddle.
