Cruinniú na nÓg Events

Broadcasting from The Glens in Manorhamilton on the day of Cruinniú na nÓg will be music created by the talented young people of North Leitrim.

Academy Award winner, and singer-songwriter, Glen Hansard, will provide online masterclasses for a dozen teenagers in North Leitrim in songwriting.

Each participant will bring an idea or draft of a song, which Glen will then hone and complete with them in their homes via Zoom. Each participant will then be filmed and recorded playing their song for broadcast from The Glens on the day of Cruinniú na nÓg.

For junior participants under 13, IFTA Award winner and ex-RTÉ presenter, Tadhg MacDhonnagáin, will engage online in the same manner. Tadgh is an experienced writer for children, having won a Children’s Book of the Year Award in 2017 for Bliain na hAmhráin, a collection of children’s songs.

Beidh fáilte ag na rannpháirtithe amhráin a chum trí Ghaeilge.

Tune in on the day of Cruinniú na nÓg to enjoy a concert of original music produced by young people in Leitrim!
