A LIVELY line dancing session kept 200 members of the Luton Irish Forum (LIF) well entertained at their annual Christmas Party.
The event, which took place at the Celtic Club, also saw guests Rachel Ingersoll from the Irish Embassy in London, Lord and Lady McKenzie and representatives from LIF partner organisations in attendance.
They enjoyed a festive lunch accompanied by some traditional music by John Devine, Robin Hodge, Paddy Curtain and Brian Burke.
Then they danced the afternoon away to tunes from the members’ favourite Eamon’s Country Sounds, led by lively dance teacher Eamonn Cunniss.
The subsidised event also included a fundraising raffle with prizes donated by Gerry Taylor Irish Butcher and Grocer, The Pines Hotel, Debenhams and the LIF art group and welfare team.
“A great afternoon, food, dancing to Eamon’s Country Sounds and the line dancing…thank you Irish Forum,” one of the members said.
A representative for LIF told The Irish Post: “We wish to extend our thanks to LIF volunteers for their tireless support and the staff and committee at Celtic Club for hosting such a memorable occasion.”
