Celtic Connections: “Successes of Failure”

Thursday 23rd February 2023, 6:00-8:30pm
The Oxford Scholar, 427 Swanston Street, Melbourne
Celtic Connections Series: “Successes of Failure”

With an ever growing and vibrant Irish-Australian and Celtic community in Melbourne,  the Celtic Club is on a mission to connect our people.  Irish people across multiple generations have a common bond and an affinity with each other. The Celtic Club exists to foster and strengthen those relationships. We welcome all the Irish (or Irish-interested) in Melbourne to become part of our Club, especially newcomers who want to grow their connections in the City.  

The Celtic Connections Series is a new monthly event where multi-generational Celts from all walks of life are invited to come together, to chat and laugh, to listen to some music and to maybe even learn something new! No Irish blood is required! All you need to bring is an interest in Ireland and Irish Australia and a willingness to enjoy yourself.

Our first event is being held on Thursday 23rd February at the Oxford Scholar on Swanston Street, Melbourne CBD. The aim of the night is to create a fun environment where you can meet and connect with new people and discuss everything from culture to politics to business.
We will also host a Q&A with Professor Ronan McDonald on the theme “Successes of Failure.”  An acclaimed academic, who many Irish Australians will know for his witty after-dinner speaking,  Ronan holds the Chair of Irish Studies at University of Melbourne. He will lead us through a light-hearted 25 minute conversation with stories and anecdotes from history, literature, sport and business on how the seeds of success are often found in failure, especially in an Irish context.

Come along and bring a friend for some “Ceoil, Caint agus Craic”.
