Spreagadh Na Rince (encourage the dance) from Sydney got an enthusiastic reception from Jindabyne audiences.
It's hard to be accurate but one local business person estimated the three day Irish Cultural Festival at Jindabyne was worth about $800,000 to the local economy. It certainly drew enthusiasts from all over Australia to enjoy the singing, dancing, Irish dancing, traditional music, the jokes (Irish of course) and some energetic Gaelic sports. A great time time, and lots of fun.
