Lady Hibernians Host Family Ceili
The Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians held their first Family Ceili at St. Francis de Sales on Saturday, February 24. A large turnout of young and old enjoyed a fun-filled Irish dancing night. Dances were called by Maureen O'Malley-Byrnes TCRG of Rockaway and Breezy Point's O'Malley Irish Dancing Academy. Some of the Irish dances performed were The Waves of Tory, Walls of Limerick, Rakes of Mallow, Bridge of Athlone, Gay Gordon, The Hay Makers Jig, Stack of Barley, Shoe the Donkey, The Siege of Carrick and a few more. Maureen Logar worked hard in the kitchen, making 25 Irish soda breads for all to enjoy.
