The Hahn barn.
BANKS - Two local Irish heritage groups are combining efforts to put on an authentic Irish Ceili (pronounced Kay-lee), a community dance event similar to square dancing, at Shirley Hahn’s barn, located on her family’s fourth-generation homestead in Banks, on September 28 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
While the Hahn Family is hosting the event, the organizers are two local nonprofits. One is The All-Ireland Culture Society, a volunteer, nonpolitical, nonsectarian organization that has promoted social opportunities, and Irish entertainment and cultural events, in Oregon and Southwest Washington for more than 75 years, according to a press release.
The Second nonprofit is the Michael O’Domhnaill Oregon Branch of Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann (CCE), an international organization headquartered in Dublin . . .
