Race Dance returns at the Abbey Hotel


The Race Dance returns to the Abbey Hotel, Roscommon this Monday, 8th of May. A fantastic programme of live dancing is planned as the race dance season begins with a special double bill featuring Ciaran Rosney live in the hotel’s front bar from 9 pm, followed by dancing in the ballroom from 10.30 pm with Jimmy Buckley and his band.

  Speaking to the People this week, promoter Joe Finnegan outlined details of what is planned for the race dances over the summer: “We have changed the format slightly with the introduction of a super three and a half hour programme of entertainment which starts at 9 pm in the front bar with the Ciaran Rosney show. Ciaran is well-known for his fantastic uptempo show. The Ballycumber native had a huge hit in 2015 with ‘Willie’s Shoes’ and we are delighted to have him as part of our show.”

  The Race Dance this Monday night will start at the earlier time of 10.30 pm with dancing continuing until 12.30 am. See you all there!
