Nollaig Na mBan Bealtaine Celebration Benefits The Dwelling Place

The May 1 Bealtaine celebration to benefit the Dwelling Place of New York was a rousing evening of music, dance, poetry and surprise guests. Sponsored by the small but mighty volunteer group Nollaig Na mBan NY, whose aim to help the Hell’s Kitchen women’s residence, the event raised both money and spirits with a lively program. Nollaig Na mBan NY founder Maura Mulligan recruited a superb cast of musicians, poets and dancers to contribute their talent.

Sister Joann Sambs, CSA, director of the Dwelling Place, on behalf of its residents, thanked the audience and performers and the Nollaig group for its continued support.
