Afro-Eire began its journey back in 2008 with a mission to foster traditional African drumming and
dance in Ireland. Since then we have facilitated thousands of children through our African Drumming for Schools programmes, facilitated Team Building
workshops for some of the largest companies in the world, provided African bands for weddings and festivals, and organised some of the most exciting African drumming workshops with some of the worlds’ best teachers.
But we aren’t finished there, we are always ready to adapt to new challenges and events.
