General Information about us

Our school is in the Immaculate Conception Building at 2934 Marshall Ave. It's at the crossroads of Marshall and Anna, near the Schlafly Brewery in Maplewood.

Our director is Mrs. Helen Gannon, from Limerick in Ireland.  We teach Irish music, dance, song, language, lilting and more. We absolutely love what we do, and it shows. Many of our teachers are themselves world champions. Just this summer, we brought a group of students to Ireland for the All Ireland Fleadh Cheoil in Ennis and our students represented St. Louis very well. You would have been proud to see them!

Just home from Ireland

We are JUST home from an amazing trip to the Emerald Isle. We brought a large group of students and their parents and we had an amazing time.  We toured around a little, visiting Bunratty Castle, the Burren, Ennis, Lahinch. We travelled to Dublin to play a concert for the US Ambassador to Ireland and the kids got to have tea with him. We headed south to the Rock of Cashel, watched an amazing concert by Brú Ború and stayed for a session with the members of Brú Ború.
