Event Description

The Polish Community in Letterkenny brought their culture, traditions and food to the local community through EDIC Donegal and Gaeltacht in Letterkenny. This was a wonderful evening of sharing Polish Culture, drama, music and food with local people and deepening connections and understanding between EU communities.

The Hazels Polish children’s folk group, from the Polish School in Errigal College, Letterkenny provided entertainment and brought the Choir from the Church of the Irish Martyrs in Letterkenny as their guests on this truly magical evening.

It is important, especially at this time,  to deepen understanding and connections between European Union members while celebrating the differences which make our Union so exciting and colourful.

Music, poetry, drama and games for children took place in a festive atmosphere with great Polish food. This was an occassion where people celebrated Christmas together and gained a deeper understanding of their shared and different cultures.

60 people from the general public attended.
