Zurkhaneh Group perform in Ballybane library.

These are images of the Iranian Zurkhaneh group who performed recently in Ballybane library.
Zurkhaneh in Persian/Kurdish is a traditional gymnasium and the national Iranian sport of Varzesh-e-Pahlavani is practiced in the Zurkhaneh.

The exercises consist of team sports that combine tests of physical strength and flexibility, specific rituals and respect for traditional moral and ethical rules.
The group performed in Ballybane library courtesy of the  organization “Sport against Racism Ireland”(S.A.R.I.)  This organization supports and promotes social inclusion and positive integration through sport.
