On March 25 2023, the Martin McHugh Scholarship Award will presented.
This scholarship was established in 2006 by Jim Graven as Chairman of the West Virginia Feis.  It is awarded each year to an Irish step dancer from the Pittsburgh Area.  It was created in honor of Martin McHugh, a dedicated father of a step dancer and tireless feis volunteer.  Marty passed away in January 2006 at the age of 47.

County Carlow/Contae Ceatharlach
Thursdays 6 - 7:30pm

The area of present-day Carlow has been inhabited for thousands of years, and the county has perhaps the highest concentration of megalithic monuments per square mile in Ireland.

The modern county boundary was shaped by the Gaelic Resurgence in the 14th to 16th centuries.

The Christianization of Ireland

Thursdays 7:30 - 9:00pm

For over 10,000 years the ancient peoples of Ireland celebrated their polytheistic pagan religion. The adoption of Christianity by the Roman Empire led to a rapid spread of the Universal (Catholic) Church of Rome throughout the territories of the Empire. Ireland was never part of the Roman Empire. Why and how did Ireland become a Christian country?
