St. Stephen’s Day Ceili

Annual St. Stephen’s Day  Ceili  Dec 26, 2018

wren-boys

As tradition has it in Ireland, St. Stephen’s Day, the day after Christmas, is the day the Wren Boys hunt a fake wren (king of the birds in Celtic mythology) and place it on top of a decorated pole. The wren boys or strawboys dress up in masks, straw suits, and colorful clothing and form music bands and parade through towns and villages – and we will gather and dance in Watertown  to keep the tradition alive!

Sally Harney
is hosting the annual
St. Stephen’s Day Ceiliholiday-image-notes

Wednesday, December 26th, 7 PM – 10:30 PM

Canadian-American Hall
202 Arlington Street, Watertown

Donation $15 at the door. 
Refreshments and live music provided.

Sally is and has been the  set dancing instructor for the Reynolds-Hanafin-Cooley Branch of the Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann for over 35 years .  What drives her is the urge to Keep the Tradition Alive.

There will be tea, coffee and a cash bar, goodies to feast on, and great Irish traditional music live for your listening and dancing pleasure.

Come join in the fun. It’s always a popular event !
