O'Flaherty Retreat on RTE Ceili House
On the final evening of the retreat, Kieran Hanrahan recorded his show "Ceili House" which aired on RTE ireland Radio in two segments on December 7th and January 18th. To listen to the show, go to CEILI HOUSE and select "Saturday 7th December" or "Saturday 18th January" on the right side of the page. Both were fantastic shows featuring instructors and students from the retreat. Thanks to Kieran and those who helped with the production and those who performed! What a great way to end our first ten years!

Here is our "First Ten Years" celebration video.
