Welcome to our 10th Anniversary year.

Well, that is it for another year, thank you to all who supported us in a difficult year. And looking forward to next year when we'll be bigger! Take care everybody and keep safe. Regards EFoI

Feile: Comhaltas in Britain

Hi everyone and here we are months into lockdown and maybe feeling a bit starved of live music, well Comhaltas na Breataine are having a virtual festival from 26th to 28th June and here is a link to it on their Facebook page.
