Ireland’s rich storytelling tradition and lively dance and music were brought to life in Luxembourg this week when youngsters attended a special summer school.

Organised by Irish cultural group Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann, the school spanned five half days during which 32 children aged 6 to 14 learned the tin whistle, step dancing, singing and drama based on Irish mythology.
“As many of the children have been attending the school several times, we have had to stream the dance and tin whistle classes to cater for beginners and experienced--that's a good sign, it means they have retained what they learnt previous years!”, coordinator Fergal O'Hannrachain told Delano on Wednesday.
To round off the Irish music summer school week, the group is organising a free outdoor ceili on 4 August. It takes place at The Blackstuff, 15 Val de Hamm, 1721, Luxembourg-Pulvermuhle, from 8pm to 10pm and is open to all.
