When: March 3-5, March 9-13 and March 15-18 2016
In his patriotic poem “When Erin First Rose,” Irishman William Drennan wrote, “When Erin first rose from the dark swelling flood, / God bless’d the green island and saw it was good; / The em’rald of Europe, it sparkled and shone, / In the ring of the world the most precious stone.” Folks can fête the Emerald Isle this month at the Burlington Irish Heritage Festival. Now in its 21st year, this celebration of Celtic culture includes an extensive schedule of music, dance, history, genealogy and more surrounding St. Patrick’s Day. Next Thursday’s concert in English and Gaelic by Ireland’s own Dervish is a can’t-miss event.
