Chinese culture celebrated by Lusk's ICA

A little piece of China came to Lusk recently when the Lusk ICA Guild held an authentic Chinese evening at St MacCullins Centre in the village.

Lusk Community Council kindly loaned the venue to the local ICA for this special event and the venue centre was suitably decked out with Chinese lanterns, to add to the eastern atmosphere.

The ICA group were honoured to be joined by members of the Chinese community, drawn from staff of the Chinese Embassy as well as members of the Confucious Institute.

A spokesperson for the Lusk ICA Guild explained: 'They gave us a presentation with fascinating facts about China and then gave us a demonstration of paper craft, the Chinese flute and Tai Chi.'

Of course, the evening was not complete without those attending enjoying some delicious authentic Chinese food.

Lusk ICA would like to thank all of their Chinese friends who attended the event and the local women who showed up and enjoyed this special evening.

Special thanks goes from Lusk ICA Guild to the event's sponsors, Country Crest as well as to Gerard Harford and Sean O'Herlhy for their kind support in putting this unforgettable evening of Chinese culture together. Well done to everyone involved in the effort.
