Launching the event Mayor Michaela Boyle said, “I’m delighted to launch the new round of dates for the 2019/20 tea dances.

“These are such popular events – packed with some of the best dancers in town.

“The tea dances also provide me with a great opportunity to enjoy some quality time with older members of the community – and enjoy the craic with the regular dancers.

“Indeed, I’ve always been amazed by their energy and sense of fun – which is such an inspiration to all.

“I have no doubts that we’ll see a fantastic turnout for all of the tea dances during my term in office – and that they’ll be hugely enjoyable events for all who attend.”
