A cultural evening between Ireland and Ukraine takes place this Saturday at Cois na hAbhna in Ennis.

Clare has been to the forefront in welcoming displaced Ukrainians by offering them peace and security following the trauma and suffering they have endured in their native country at the hands of the Russians.

As part of the welcome, the Comhaltas resource centre in conjunction with Ireland Poland Ukraine Refugee Relief (IPURR), will host an Ireland-Ukraine cultural event in Cois na hAbhna, Gort Road on Saturday May 7th at 8.00pm.

This event will feature musicians, singers and dancers from Clare and from amongst the Ukrainians who have recently come to Clare.

Mícheál Ó Riabhaigh is among the organisers, he said, “It will be an opportunity for us to share and appreciate our cultural traditions, and to demonstrate our solidarity”.

Among the Clare performers will be Joan Hanrahan, the Lyons’ Aisling, Seán and Ann, Oliver O’Connell and friends, young musicians from Clarecastle Ballyea Comhaltas and a number of dancers. They will be joined by pianist and singer Kseniya Doroshenko and Ukrainian musicians, singers and dancers currently staying in Ennis and North Clare.
