Splódar is perhaps unique in Ireland in that it regularly presents plays in both the Irish and English languages. Its directors aim to further develop and nurture drama in Irish and to provide a platform for writers who wish to express themselves in that language. The encouragement and financial assistance of Foras na Gaeilge in Splódar’s endeavours are gratefully acknowledged.
Splódar’s directors are Mary Morris, Luke McGinley and Prin Duignan.
Splódar is also associated with the film company Filí na Gaeilge whose aim is to give a voice to writers in the Irish language. A documentary by the company on the works of leading poets and singers such Máire Mhac a’ tSaoi, Máirtin Ó Direain, Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill, John Spillane, Máiréad Ní Mhaonaigh and Eoin Coughlan can be viewed on-line at www.filinagaeilge.tv. Work on another documentary is due to commence in the autumn of this year.To go to Splódar's web site click here.
