We have three very talented performers at the Craic Session with Oisin Mac, Ciaran Moran, both first-time performing in New York City, and comedian Katie Boyle. Swift Hibernian Lounge is the perfect venue for this type of show. The show is sold out and we have a waiting list going now.” Go to the for details.
