Polish Folk Dance Group Koniczyna was established in October 2009 supported by Dominican Polish Chaplaincy in Dublin. Koniczyna consists of approx. 35 members at various ages and levels of dance skills (from professional dancers to beginners). The group’s program includes national, regional dances and selected regional folk songs.
Małgorzata Dulny – Koniczyna’s founder and adult groups choreographer – is a long-time member of Szczecin Folk Song and Dance Group Krąg, and a graduate of Polish Folklore Group Instructors’ Training College at UMCS in Lublin, Poland.
Paulina Pietroń - Koniczyna's long-time member and a graduate of Stowarzyszenie Sztuki i Edukacji Artystycznej is the junior groups folk dance instructor.
We are proud ambassadors of Poland’s native folklore on the Emerald Island and we promote the richness of Polish culture to all nationalities. In 2016, Koniczyna opened a junior group to share the beauty of traditional Polish dances with younger generations. We are now encouraging children and teenagers (aged 4+) to join our existing dance group to learn about their native culture and to make life-long friendships.
As a non-profit volunteer-based group we rely on group members' contributions and sponsors' support to help us further develop our skill set and to allow us fulfill our mission. In November 2018, Tracey Solicitors became Koniczyna's sponsor.
