Lá Na Gaeilge: Irish Language Day
Lá na Gaeilge will take place on Zoom on Saturday, May 1, and will be hosted by Irish Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant, Brigita Gallagher, and Irish language instructor Gerald Costello. Both are teaching this year’s Irish language classes for the Irish Cultural Center and Elms College. The program is free, but registration is required.
Although we cannot gather in person this year, we are very excited to celebrate virtually with all of you and our wonderful guests. We will be joined by some great talent centered around the theme Voices from Cork – it’s going to be a wonderful morning of appreciation of the Irish language and music.
9:00 am – Readings of selected works in Irish and English, and discussion with bilingual poet Siobhán Ní Dhomhnaill.
10:00 am – Traditional Irish music with Clíona Halley and Darragh Carey-Kennedy.
11:00 am – Presentation by UCC Professor Ríona Ní Churtáin on poet Seán Ó Ríordáin, plus new translations of a few Ó Ríordáin poems read by poet Greg Delanty and UCC Professor Aidan Doyle.
There will be two approximately 15–20 minute breaks in between presenters.
