Just for the Craic at St Wilfrid’s Centre

Posted on April 11, 2012 by


St Wilfrid’s Centre celebrated St Patrick’s Day in style this year with a wonderful mixed bag of entertainment. 

The celebrations included Irish Reel dancing and community singing of ‘When Irish Eyes are Smiling’, ‘Danny Boy’ and the ‘Wild Rover’.  Monsignor Willie Kilgannon gave a virtuoso performance on the tin whistle which was complemented by volunteer Jim Hogan’s accompaniment on the drum and mandolin.  Somali client Prak was overjoyed with the celebrations and put on his own solo drum and song performance. 

The event was attended by Daughters of Charity Sisters from St Ronan’s Road whose table also were victorious in the St Patrick’s Day quiz.  Kevin Bradley Director said “It is good for our clients to enjoy celebrations because it helps them learn about other people’s cultures and brings them closer as a community.  This also follows on from successful Pakistan, Chinese and African Caribbean days at the Centre.
