Moldovan Traditional Dance
Moldova is a beautiful country with a rich culture, delicious wine, and hospitable people
Moldovans started to immigrate to Ireland in 2000. At the moment Moldovan community has around 30,000 citizens.
Moldovan Community in Ireland plays a significant role in the community’s life; it links the two countries, the two homes which each Moldovan citizen keeps in their hearts.
It also offers informational support to Moldovan citizens, promotes Moldovan culture and traditions and organises thematic events.
This is the third year that the Moldovan Community is taking part in The St. Patrick’s Festival and they are delighted to be part of this event, to celebrate it among the Irish people from Ireland and from all over the world.
While we cannot gather on the streets this year St. Patrick's Festival Community Arts are delighted to present a collection of videos featuring exciting performances of traditional and cultural song, dance and poetry from Ireland and all over the world, as participants perform pieces from their native lands.
All the performers come from the participating Community Groups who join us every year to enrich our pageant in the St. Patrick's Festival parade. We welcome you to join us in celebrating the richness and diversity of our wonderful community groups and thank them all for their** exceptional commitment and contribution to the festival each year.
