Ciad Mile Fàilte

We are a mens' association in Halifax, Nova Scotia. We celebrate the life and works of Robert Burns and promote Scottish heritage.

Our organization is based on the Tarbolton Bachelors' Club founded by Burns. Like the original club, we seek to be “a diversion for the weary man worn down by necessary labours of life”.

 

We have an active choir which is welcomed at numerous venues about town. Our members perform other work for good causes.

 

Our Burns Supper is a highlight of our social year. It is highly regarded for its good times and top speakers.

 

We assemble on the first Thursday of the month between September and June. Our meetings typically include poetic readings and songs of Robert Burns. Like the Tarbolton Club, formal debates are presented from time to time.

 

In keeping with the Tarbolton tradition, our members are all male, although we have dropped the requirement to be a bachelor. Membership is by invitation and is limited to 37 men, one for each year that Burns lived.

 

 

Club News

 

The Canada Day gathering on the waterfront will not take place this year. Logistical barriers have forced us to cancel this event for 2016.

 

The next club get-together will be the BBQ at Paul Roy's home in August. See the Events section for more details.
