We look forward to sprinkling some Macnas magic on Galway City during the St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Sunday 17th March.
This year Macnas Artistic Director Noeline Kavanagh is highlighting Next Generation Macnas taking to the streets. These ensembles rehearse weekly throughout the year and are working very hard to deliver a high energy, interactive and immersive performances for Galway this March.
The Macnas Drummers, under the stewardship of Éimhín Cradock and Debbie Wright, will perform a celebration of the dance between shadow and light to the city streets. They will be joined by the Macnas Young Ensemble, led by Miquel Barcelo, who will bring a performance inspired by the animal energy in flight and fight with the human spirit.
