Terry Rafferty did a super job as Chair Person at the Hall of Fame Ceili; as always! The music was terrific! We had the great pleasure of having one of the inductee’s Joe Burke at our February Ceili with his lovely wife Ann(not a sound in the house when they were playing their duet). What lovely music along with Eileen Goodman, Mike Rafferty, John and Gerry Kennedy, Dan Gibney, and also Lisa. Joe also told a few good tales.

A special thanks to Dan Dennehy for all his e-mails regarding our Ceili. Also to Ann for bringing her tea kettle along, and, to all the ladies for bringing the goodies!….thanks.
