The Moate Set was established in the 1940’s and danced locally at house dances. The Set was revived in the 1980’s by Frank Bracken and danced locally in Dun Na Sí CCE Cultural Centre used by the local set dancers. In 1992 Joe and Siobhán O Donovan did a workshop in Dun Na Sí to keep the set alive. In 2014 Bridie Hamm, Tom Shine, Nicky Finn and Sharleen McCaffrey got together to bring the set into the next generation.
