Ceol, Caint Agus Craic – Music, Talk and Fun

The elegant ballroom was the setting for “The Gathering on Bellevue,” the fifth annual benefit for the Museum of Newport Irish History Interpretive Center. Festively dressed party-goers enjoyed “Taste of Ireland” hors d’oeuvres, desserts and, of course, libations.

The mission of the museum is to tell the story of Irish immigration in Newport County from the 1600s to the present, to preserve artifacts and momentos of that movement, and to facilitate research into Irish heritage.
