Cumann na Gaeilge i mBoston celebrated the end of its fall term with a pre-holiday party at the Irish Cultural Center of New England on November 19th.

After a successful 10 week run of Wednesday night classes, the students and teachers were ready for an evening of ceol agus craic and took over the ICCNE’s pub, with music provided by Patrick Clifford and Maureen McNally.

Society President Bernadette Ridge (Nic Con Iomaire) addressed the crowd with a word of appreciation, as well as a song, and as usual, folks returned the favor. It was a nice way to kick off the holiday season, indeed.
