Amy Greer-Murphy - President

Amy is a PhD student in the Geography department. She comes from Ireland and primarily enjoys playing very fast reels. She also enjoys cats and Aran sweaters.

Clare Galwey - Treasurer

Clare is a fourth year Combined Honours student, studying history and Russian. She has survived a year abroad in Moscow, and is looking foward to the almost infinite amount of fun and craziness that folksoc provides.

Kira Browne - Secretary/Vice President

Kira is a second year linguist at Josephine Butler College who has enjoyed participating in lots of parts of the folk society this year, from calling to rapper dancing to picnics! Despite being really busy with many other activities, she is really looking forward to being a core part of the exec this year and encouraging more people to enjoy folk!

Beth and Simon Armstrong - Squire

Simon and Beth Armstrong are joint Squire for Rapper and Morris dancing. Simon is doing a physics PhD and Beth works for a local charity - she's a graduate but we don't hold it against her! They both think everyone should try rapper and morris at least once - when else do you get to sword dance in pubs or wave hankies in the street?

Claire Moore - Band Manager

Claire is a second year music student from Belfast, and is now the manager of the greatest ceilidh band in the world. When not creating musical awesomeness, she can be found frolicking with canine friends.

Konrad Dabrowski - Ceilidh Club Mangager

Konrad is a postdoc in computer science. He started ceilidh dancing five years ago and hasn't stopped since. He is often found driving off to ceilidhs in far-away places. He started calling a couple of years ago and has been running the folk society's Ceilidh Club since then.
