Past:  26th Anniversary of the Society's St. Patrick's Celebration

On March 19, 2016, the Irish Society of Western Manitoba celebrated St. Patrick’s Day for the 26th time.

After a wonderful meal at The Royal Oak Inn and Suites, we were entertained by the McConnell School of Dance, Winnipeg and Brandon Divisions and then Seamus O'jibway featuring Larry Roulette.

A generous donation of china was received from the Late Gordon Bagshaw which was auctioned off at the Celebration.  Gordon was a society member for a number of years and volunteered at the Pavilion annually.

This event was a success due to the volunteers, support from local sponsors, the people who attended and the entertainment.  Click here to see our 2016 Sponsors.

Past:  Members' Fall Barbeque

The Irish Society of Western Manitoba held their annual BBQ on Saturday, September 12, 2015 in the Mills' yard just outside of Brandon.  Approximately 50 people enjoyed the delicious roast beef dinner along with an assortment of salads and an "Irish cake" and ice cream for dessert.  We lucked out with a beautiful warm day and everyone enjoyed the "craic" and soaking up the sunshine.

We were expecially pleased to have special guests from Winnipeg's Irish Society of Manitoba including President Kieran Savage accompanied by three of his board members.

Members and guests were treated to a toe-tapping display of Celtic music by Matt Zimmerman on guitar and Grayson Ross on fiddle.  Everyone joined in the "kitchen Party" in the backyard until the sun was well down.  Looking forward to our next BBQ!
