Our first ever virtual Blas is done and dusted! We had a wonderful time hosting everyone virtually and co-hosting many events with the North Atlantic Fiddle Convention! We would like to thank our students for joining us, as well as all of the amazing masterclass tutors, the team at Aonad na Gaeilge, the Irish World Academy faculty and tech team, and all of our fantastic performers and guests during our many public events!

We would also like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of our amazing sponsors for their generosity, including Culture Ireland, Foras na Gaeilge, the UL Foundation, Limerick Culture and Arts Office, Tipperary County Council, and Waterford Council!

We look forward to hopefully welcoming everyone back in person next summer - save the dates for 20th June to 1st July 2022! #Blas2022
