A week-long residency at the CCI in March 2020 led to a chance encounter between renowned trad band Kíla and CCI resident Lt. Colonel Dan Harvey, a former member of the Irish peacekeeping forces and military historian. This in turn led to the inspirational idea of writing The Peacekeeper’s Privilege, a tribute to 60 years of Irish peacekeeping. Commissioned by the CCI to celebrate our 20th anniversary, with support from the Arts Council of Ireland (Traditional Arts Commissions Award), this moving piece is performed tonight to launch CCI’s St Patrick’s Festival.

This evening we also present another short commission by dancer Mufutau Yusuf and Ronan O Snodaigh in the CCI’s courtyard.
