Our Mission

“Failte” (“Welcome”) from the Lincoln Irish Dancers! Our mission is “to heighten awareness and appreciation of traditional Irish dance, and to celebrate Irish culture” here in Lincoln, Nebraska and surrounding areas. Our group began in March of 1997. We now offer a variety of activities such as holding Irish social dance classes from fall through spring in 5-week sessions; performing locally and regionally throughout the year; hosting a public ceili and workshops; facilitating periodic trips, e.g., to Ireland; and a number of member-only social events.

“Go raibh maith agaibh!” (“Thank you!”) to all who donated to our fund drive for the 2019 spring ceili! We were delighted to see such strong support from among our own members and alums and friends. Your contributions allowed us to continue hosting this special event.

May joy and peace surround you, contentment latch your door, and happiness be with you now and bless you evermore! May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields.
