St. Patrick's Dinner and Céilí - 14 March 2015 - Family-friendly event

We Invite you

When: Saturday, March 14th, 2014. Céilí from 08:00PM to 11:30PM

Where: Blessed Sacrament Church, 194 Fourth Avenue, Ottawa Ontario K1S 2L5.

Tickets: $35, Please note that NO tickets will be sold at the door! Deadline for ticket purchase was 11 March. 

This is an authentic Irish, family-friendly (no green beer) event!

Last year's dinner and dance were a sellout and a HUGE success. In fact, last couple of years, we had to turn people away at the door. It will sell out this year, so you should get your tickets as soon as possible.

This year our dinner will be catered by the award-winning Bobby's Table chefs. The three-course dinner will include vegetarian, and gluten-free options! 

After a first-class, three course complete dinner, beverages available for purchase, there will be an Irish dance (Céilí), with the dances called. No experience or partner is required, and it is loads of fun and helps work the dinner off.

The excellent Comhaltas Céilí Band will provide the music and Sheila Scott will call the dances. At the intermission, Irish dancers from the Trillium Academy will be performing.

There will be a raffle, a 50-50 draw, and a multitude of crafts and items for sale, by Blakeney Designs from Kingston.

At around 10:30 PM, there will be tea and snacks.

A splendid time is guaranteed for all.

Come, join us  and have a good craic!
Ceol, damhsa, craic!

Notes from the CCÉ Ottawa Chair, February 2015

Many thanks to current PRO for teaching the Beginner level Irish classes at the start of the term. Bridget Gulich gas accepted to take the instruction of the Beginner class onwards.

Also we have received confirmation that Ottawa will be hosting four levels of the TEG this year: A1, A2, B1 and the new B2. Ottawa is the only testing centre for Canada!

We are encouraging students in the English Intensive program at Ottawa University to attend our ceilis.

I have confirmed that I will be running a language teaching workshop on basic sean-nós dance class and to call the ceili of the Hamilton branch on Saturday March 7th.

Respectfully submitted, Cathaoirleach

Until next time / Go dtí an chéad uair eile!
