2024 Coulee Hoolie Ceili a Grand Success!

Fundraiser for La Crosse Dive Unit, and

Bantry Lifeboat (BISRA)


Linda Pfaff, President, and the Board and Members of the La Crosse Bantry Friendship Association, thanks everyone who came out and made our 8th annual Coulee Hoolie Ceili fundraising event last Saturday night such an overwhelming success.


While we're still finalizing numbers, we thank you and our wonderful sponsors and donors allowing us to make a generous donation to both La Crosse Dive Team & Bantry Lifeboat, enabling them to be more successful in their search and rescue operations!

For photos, see our Coulee Hoolie Ceili page on this website, and on Facebook. Special thanks to:


  • The Coulee Hooligans for donating their music;

  • Eamon de Cógáin, formerly of West Cork, for his Ceili calling;

  • Terry Visger for her Irish storytelling;

  • and Phil S. Addis for being our event photographer...

  • ....and of course, to all our volunteers who made the event successful!!


See you again March 29, 2025 for #9! Mark your calendars!
