Midsummer celebrated with song and dance in Effrinagh as part of Creative Ireland's Cruinniú na nÓg

As part of Creative Ireland's 'Cruinniú na nÓg', a national day of creativity aimed at children was held at various locations on Saturday last, including a special event in Effrinagh.

What has now become one of the most popular events of the summer in the county, Edwina Guckian and her dancers, accompanied by wonderfully talented musicians and story tellers combined brilliantly.

The night was a celebration of midsummer and bonfire night with a dance around the fire at Effrinagh Crossroads with everyone invited to arrive on bicycles and dressed in 1930s style clothing.

Events celebrating Cruinniú na nÓg were also held in Carrick-on-Shannon, Carrigallen, Dromahair, Drumshanbo, Lurganboy, Manorhamilton, Mohill and Rossinver
