The Russian community in Ireland has celebrated its Annual Festival of Russian Culture, which was organised by the community and supported by the Dublin City Council and the Russian Embassy. This Festival is in its 5th year and attracts more and more visitors from around the country.

This is a week-long Festival which is traditionally celebrated in Russia as “Maslenitsa”, meaning Pancake week. Russian traditional music and dance, traditional costumes, fun activities, food and more took place during this week.

The Family Day, which plays a significant part of Pancake week, took place in the Ballsbridge Hotel in Dublin on Sunday the 2nd of March. The RTE Nationwide reportage is available to view for a limited period here.
