This year’s Irish celebration featured a cultural presentation by Adrian McGurn an International Exchange Student from the British Exchange Initiative, Ireland.  The night started with Irish cuisine consisting of Irish food and a green punch to add to the flavor and color of the night. Throughout dinner there was a performance by Millikin Men’s choir who sang about an Island in Ireland.  After this they were serenaded with Irish music by a flute soloist Deidra Mason and by Adrian himself, then ending with traditional Irish dancing. There were to100 in attendance including international students and people from the Decatur community.


The room was decorated in Irish flags and shamrocks and gold fish to represent the orange of the Irish flag.  The night went off with a bang and many people dancing to Irish traditional music.  The Irish celebration truly showed the people the culture of Ireland and how it differs to the American culture.
