Dublin Scottish Country Dance Club was founded in the 1960s by a group of Scots living in Ireland. Today, the membership is international.
We are a social, rather than teaching, dance group, with instruction shared between three Scots. Most weeks our music is provided by John and Judy Barnes on accordion and fiddle respectively, sometimes joined by their granddaughter Anna on the fiddle.
We hold an annual dance and at least one ceilidh during the year. Occasionally we provide entertainment at care homes and hospitals or for special events.
Dublin Scottish Country Dance Club is affiliated to the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society and has close links with Dublin Scottish Benevolent Society of St. Andrew. We also have connections with Cork Scottish Country Dance Club, whose Burns' Supper dance we attend, and with groups in Northern Ireland; some of our members also belong to the RSCDS International Branch.
