On March 26 2022, the Martin McHugh Scholarship Award was presented to Pittsburgh’s own Brigid Clark!  Brigid is a Senior at North Hills High School and will be attending Robert Morris University, intending to major in advanced medical imaging.  She is active in Irish dancing as well as the Pittsburgh Irish Rowing Club.  She is the daughter of Pat Clark and the late Mary Clark.
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.
Congratulations, Brigid!  Your Irish dance family is proud of you! ☘️





History of Christmas and Christmas in Ireland

2-week course

Live Zoom Course. Thursdays December 8 and 15 at 7pm

The presentation will detail the history of the emergence of the Christian annual celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.  It explains how and why many of the pre-Christian pagan traditions were incorporated into the Christian celebration.  For instance, it will explain the Christmas celebration in a wider historical context that includes the Roman Saturnalia celebration, the diverging views inside the Christian church on the celebration of Christ's birth, the issue of the date of Christ's actual birth, and the history of Christmas in the USA. The origins of Saint Nicholas, Santa Claus, and Father Christmas will be explained.
