At the Annual Meeting it was discussed whether or not the Portland Ceili Society should continue to exist and hold dances, there now being so many other local & regional options for both Irish and other kinds of dancing and activities. We decided to put it to the best test of all, a dance! The September ceili (usually not well attended) will be our litmus test to see if there is sufficient interest to continue with monthly dances, continue on a more limited schedule, or gracefully close the doors.
We are asking you to attend this dance as a vote saying "Yes, I want the PCS dances to continue."
Regardless of the outcome, we will be holding a grand (costume) ceili for October, with special guest, Andrea Wild.
