Thanks to the various suggestions and help from members of the list, there
was plenty of good food -- Irish stew, Irish coffee, etc, plenty of
shamrock round the walls -- but not so much Irish dancing.
When I demonstrated the steps needed (with my usual panache ! ), half the
dancers started putting on hats and coats to go home. We bolted the doors
to prevent anyone leaving, got them through the Walls of Limerick, and I
then had to promise them that the rest of the evening would be
English/Scottish.
 And a good time was had by all.

Now they want some more, so I have to think of another theme...

A question: what do the Murikans mean by "barn dances"?
I was told that some of the local American community would have come to our
ceili(dh), if we did barn dances.
???
