The Field Dancers performed a jig in the rotunda.

We had a fantastic sold-out Tower After Hours celebrating the beauty and traditions of Ireland! We sang, we ate, we laughed, we danced, and we learned a thing or two about Irish culture. Who needs to wait for St. Patrick’s day to dance a jig to the sound of bagpipes when you can do it February 11th instead?

Several talented dance troupes showcased Irish dancing, wowing the audience with their energy and expressiveness. Our green-lit stelae loomed as the Sheela-Na-Gig and Band filled the Museum with Irish sounds between dance sets like an audible taste of Celtic culture. 

The Sheela-Na-Gig and Band.

Speaking of tastes, several local Irish pubs and restaurants served traditional Irish dishes, including corned beef sliders, shepherd’s pie, bread pudding, and apple crumble. Guinness also served pints of their different drafts, from a signature stout to a nitro IPA.
