Traditional Irish House
Members learn by ear from Prof. Mick Moloney, as well as NYU Ethnomusicology PhD candidates and other experienced musicians. The orchestra name is reminiscent of Irish-American dance bands of the early 1900s, such as Dan Sullivan's Shamrock Band, or Pat Roche's Harp and Shamrock Orchestra, or even Erin's Pride Orchestra.

Airneál na Bealtaine and Airneál na Nollag at Glucksman Ireland House NYU - 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007.
