'Mayo Day'..... almost!

Thursday 29th April 12.15pm

FREE EVENT

Meanwood Park, Green Road, Leeds LS6 4LE

1st May is ‘Mayo Day’: celebrating the achievements, heritage and culture, diaspora, and community spirit of a county. The population of County Mayo in the West of Ireland stands at slightly more than 130,000 but its diaspora is a multiple of that. It is estimated that there are 3.5 million people around the world with Mayo origins. The city of Leeds has for many generations been ‘home’ to people from County Mayo -in particular, from the northern areas of the county- who have adopted it as their home. Community performances of traditional Irish music and spoken word. Booking essential due to limited numbers, all socially distancing rules will be observed. In collaboration with Leeds Irish Health & Homes.
