Some spirited dancing was found in April 2000 at a ceili with the Gleann an Iolair Ceili Band in Sligo.

It was a very special occasion - the first visit of the Tulla Ceili Band to St Joseph's, Drumcondra, Dublin, April 2000. Here the band and some members of the club pose after the ceili.

P J Hayes, leader of the Tulla Ceili Band, and Mairéad Casey were in a festive mood after the Millennium Ceili in St Joseph's, Drumcondra, April 2000.

Paddy Neylon, the sean nós dancer from Liscannor, Co Clare, celebrated his fiftieth birthday at a surprise party at Vaughan's Barn, Kilfenora, in April 2000. Paddy's mother Susan (centre) sadly passed away in May.

When Michael Sexton found he was booked for the Spanish Fleadh Malaga longer than expected, he had to rearrange a couple of ceilis. The substitute band that played for a ceili in the Armada were said to be better than the original - Pat Curtin, Caroline O'Dea, Tom Barry, Micheál Sexton (Michael and Betty's son) and Pat Walsh.

Pat Murphy and Aidan Vaughan went to Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island to teach workshops during Easter week. Here's a scene of Pat in the Fleet Club, Halifax.
