Misneach (courage), is a feeling that is deeply rooted in all those who live and breathe our culture all over the world. It is Misneach that keeps Irish Traditional Music, Song, Dance & Storytelling alive and thriving worldwide. This suite of music is not only a celebration of this courage, but it's creation is a true exponent of Misneach.
