Culture

The Irish Centre works to ensure that Irish Culture has a presence at the club. We strive to promote Irish food, dance, music and language in a variety of ways, one of which is our participation at the World Famous Heritage Days here in Edmonton where we host the Ireland Pavilion. Over the years we’ve served a variety of Irish food staples such as Irish stew, potato pancakes and soda bread and we partner with the dance schools in the area to showcase what Irish Dance is all about.

The Irish Centre has also been the Rose Centre for Western Canada for the past 12 seasons and hope to continue to host this event on a bi-yearly basis starting in 2021.

Our most recent cultural endeavor is partnering with Barra Scanlon of the University of Alberta who has offered to teach Conversational Irish to our members.
