Loughgiel Folk Dancers were established in 1978 and are the current Ulster and International champions in both team and solo competitions.

We have been competing at the Eisteddfod in Llangollen since 1993 and have been returning since namely due to the enjoyment of the festival and the cherished friendships they have made throughout the years.

They have in a sense been given the key to the town and are treated so well by all of the local residents some of whom have even come to visit us in Ireland. The Eisteddfod represents for us the heart of folk music, song and dance.

We love to participate and can’t wait to perform if we are lucky enough to be accepted in 2017.
