“We’re very excited to have a new home for traditional Irish music classes on the Northwest side at Mo Dailey’s,” said Sean Cleland, executive director of the Irish Music School of Chicago. “Owner Megan Dailey cultivates a real sense of community at her establishment and has welcomed our School with great enthusiasm. We’ve had a lot of requests from parents and adult students in that area which includes Norwood Park, Edison Park, and Park Ridge all of which have a lot of Irish and Irish-American families. We are thrilled to partner with Megan and Mo Dailey’s.”
