Solas Nua is supported in large part by a dedicated team of volunteers. In Irish, the noun for a volunteer is “deonach.” The root of the word means “willing, desirous, eager, spontaneous.” These adjectives accurately capture the spirit of the Solas Nua volunteers. Our volunteers share a love of Irish arts, and support a broad range of programs from our annual Capital Irish Film Festival and Irish Book Day, to special programs throughout the year. We hope you will consider volunteering with Solas Nua, and promoting Irish Arts!
