I'm a South Australian who has a love for food and all things local. I love to write about my experiences and sharing them with others so they can enjoy too!

This year promises to be bigger, better and even more Irish than last year, with Irish dancers, live music, Irish dancing classes, pipers and much more.
The Irish are big on their live music and there will be performances from Celtic & Comhaltas traditional musicians, Ceol Maith, Mollydooker, Gallowglass, Shambolics, Folk n Spicy, Timbers and The Borderers.

If you've got your dancing shoes on, join in with some of the Irish dancing acts including Adelaide Academy of Irish Dance, Scoil Rince Cashel, Newry School of Irish Dance, Miller School of Irish Dance, Robert's Academy of Irish Dance and Celtic Reflections.
With Ireland taking the round 4 win from Scotland in the 6 Nations, Irish fans will also be looking forward to the next game against England on St. Patrick's Day to get them even closer to winning the Grand Slam.
Did you know there was an Irish club in Adelaide? If you enjoy the light-hearted Irish atmosphere, check out the Irish Australian Association which runs events throughout the year, along with practicing Irish music clubs and even a club to learn Irish. What a Craic!
This is sure to be an event filled with so much laughter and fun, that you'll walk away with stomach muscles aching that you never knew you had. And just watch out for the leprechauns.
