An authentic Irish céilí

An authentic Irish céilí

The group gathers for an informal céiliThe first céilí (prounounced cay-lee) of the year took place, and it was a tremendous amount of fun. Typically, an Irish céilí is described as:

… a literary entertainment where stories and tales, poems and ballads, are rehearsed and recited, and songs are sung, conundrums are put, proverbs are quoted, and many other literary matters are related and discussed.

Often, as is the custom in Ireland, the tradition involves guests performing music, song, story telling and poetry. The tertians and the directors had a great evening involving laughter, a few drinks, and a lot of stories and music.
