Irish tunes, step dancing and the Irish jig keep the energy flowing at this Irish Week Festival. Festival-goers may trace their roots in genealogy workshops, learn the Irish language and take in colorful cultural exhibits and contemporary Irish short films. Meet Irish celebraties; view Irish movies, cultural exhibits and demonstrations and have a "great craic" (gaelic for "a great times.").
