An Idea was Born over 40 years ago

Folkorama  is the largest and longest-running multicultural Festival of its kind in the world.  Folklorama began in  1970 and the Irish Association boasts to have been involved within 3 years of its conception.  You just can't beat the hospitality of the Irish Pavilion . We showcase the McDonnell School of Dance, Traditional Music and brilliant talent directly from Ireland.  Our cultural centre enlightens all to life in Ireland,  past and present. Your senses will be perked to the aroma of homemade Irish stew, soda bread, colcannon and much more to tempt your taste buds. Sure, it will be fun and you can't leave the Pavilion without raising a Pint of Guinness and tapping your feet to the amazing music and dance.  See you all in August for some Great Craic!
