One Hundred Thousand Welcomes!
Aha! You found us! Thank you for visiting this page.
We are pleased to bring to you, the only Irish focused group in all of
Tampa Bay. There are several fine Scottish/Celtic groups, and many wonderful Irish pubs in the region, and we love them all.
We present to you an opportunity to connect with others that have
an interest, fondness or love of all things Irish & Gaelic!
In addition to gathering socially, our goal is to create a fellowship of people that are interested in sharing their talents & knowledge.
Currently, the St. Petersburg International Folk Fair (SPIFFS) is in the process of preparing for Folk Fair events in the near future!!
Proud to say the we will be the Irish group represented at SPIFFS!!!
This is where we could fill in this missing part of the Celtic community with this amazing and diverse organization. Thousands of school children and families from 5 Tampa Bay/Suncoast counties have come to SPIFFS Folk Fair. SPIFFS is celebrating 46 great years!
Due to the COVID situation, Folk Fair 2021 will be on hold.
Look for our SIGH group to be part of a number of SPIFFS events to be held during 2021 & 2022.
Because of the current Coronavirus pandemic, we have connected through social media and communicating via emails and ask that you support our group through your membership & donations.
We have held exciting ZOOM meet-ups. We shared a Samhain Celebration on All Hallows Day and then a YULETIDE/CHRISTMAS celebration. We have had some wonderful guest speakers to share their knowledge and we have been fortunate to have them! Thank you to William Fisher, Kim Graham, Gary Fuller & Gerry O'Connor.
We held a grand in-person WELCOME GATHERING on Jan 31st, 2021 and
enjoyed meeting some of our newest members in a covid-safe environment.
We were able to support our MEMBER musicians: Celtic Conundrum.
We have been to the "sidewalk cafe" at Mary Margaret's Irish pub to hear fellow members/musicians Brendan Nolan & Cage O'Hanlon.
(A few pictures are posted on our "SCRAPBOOK" page.)
Our Facebook page welcomes educational, enlightenment, interesting facts and general information to be submitted as it pertains to to the Irish/Gaelic Culture and your experiences.
Connect with us on facebook: Suncoast Irish & Gaelic Heritage
We would love to hear about your Irish/Gaelic heritage, your travels to any of the Celtic lands, maybe you could share a tune or two??
Just send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
A music jam is definitely on our future schedule as soon as we can
get together and share the craic.
As we hold our get-togethers in the near future, we will be doing so to help support our MEMBER MUSICIANS of SIGH. (Suncoast Irish & Gaelic Heritage)
Slainte' and best of health to all!
