Seachtain na Gaeilge is with us again and it’s that time of year when we come together to celebrate our Culture through music, dance, arts and our unique and beautiful language.
Leitrim County Library Service would like everyone to join in the fun!
Is féile idirnáisiúnta Ghaeilge í Seachtain na Gaeilge a chuireann úsáid na Gaeilge agus an cultúr Gaelach chun cinn in Éirinn agus thar lear.
Seachtain na Gaeilge is an international Irish-language festival promoting the use of Irish language and culture, both at home and abroad, running over a fortnight in March every year.
The festival has built up incredible momentum in recent years, becoming the largest celebration of our native language and culture held every year.
Leitrim County Library Service is running a programme of events for Seachtain na Gaeilge and wish to invite members of the community to take part in the festival. Tá súil againn go mbeidh an pobal ar fad, idir óg agus aosta, ag glacadh páirte san fhéile.
Among the many events being organised across Leitrim Libraries is a lively traditional music session which takes place on Saturday 14th March from 11.30am in Carrick-on-Shannon Library, while you can put your best foot forward, and try some sean-nós dancing in Mohill Library on Friday 13th March at 6.30pm.
A special storytelling event takes place in Kinlough Library, also on Friday 13th March at 6.15pm when renowned storyteller Séamus Mac Annaidh will be on hand to recount many tales as Gaeilge.
These events are free and open to everyone.
Other activities planned for the younger children during Seachtain na Gaeilge include a very special Amhránaíocht agus Scéalaíocht with local pre-school children in Manorhamilton Library, and a Tráth na gCeist with local schoolchildren in Kiltyclogher Branch Library.
While visiting your local library, check out the vast range of Irish language resources available for all ages, along with a quality collection on our Irish Culture and Heritage.
Irish is for everyone and Seachtain na Gaeilge is for everyone. Croí na Teanga, it’s you!
