~Féis an Eilein is celebrating 30 years ~Trithead Bliadhna~
Due to Covid-19 regulations and in accordance with our NS Government, we will not host any public events at the Christmas Island Firehall.
These cancelled events include our weekly Tuesday concerts, our in-person music lessons and our annual Féis week events.
Although we can’t see each other in person, our students and staff continue to work to develop ways to share Gaelic song, language, music and dance with the world.
