Irish Events Galore in April!

A chairde, bhí ócáid den scoth againn ar Lá Fhéile Pádraig in Washington DC! Míle buíochas d’achan duine a tháinig le páirt a ghlacadh nó le héisteacht le Cór DC, agus go háirithe do na stiúrthóirí, Liam agus Carolyn. It was wonderful to see so many people singing and listening to Irish songs and music on St. Patrick’s Day in downtown Washington DC!
