The Across the Lines cross border youth project has provided an opportunity for young people to work with their own drama leaders and be a part of a wider drama grouping, to learn under the creative direction of our able team of local drama leaders and Paula McFetridge and Carlo Gébler. Local drama leaders Declan, Sally and Tori have passionately brought to this production a variety of theatrical influences and drama style including physical theatre and creative chorus interpretations which have been cleverly and artistically integrated into one coherent production – about to take to stage.Continue reading “On this day – cross border collaboration and creativity in action!”

Join us for a Book Launch of An Ghaeilge in Eaglais na hÉireann, the first book to chronicle the role of the Irish language in the history of the Church of Ireland; which is now re-published by Cumann Gaelach na hEaglaise for a new generation. This new publication, thirty years on since it was first written by Risteárd Giltrap, is now bi-lingual and beautifully presented, it will be of interest to those seeking an understanding of a strand of Irishness which has long been an influential aspect of Irish identity. The book will be launched by Caroline Nolan, Oifigeach Forbartha Gaeilge (Irish Language Development Officer).
“His careful research – not least concerning the at times colourful
history of Cumann Gaelach na hEaglaise – deserves as wide an
audience as possible, and if readers are drawn into the narrative as
Béarla they may in due course come to share some of the author’s
passions and concerns as Gaeilge”.
– Bishop Michael Burrows, Diocese of Cashel, Ferns and Ossory
and Patron of Cumann Gaelach na hEaglaise.
The book launch will be coupled with a talk by author, lifetime activist and publisher Padraig Ó Snodaigh, who will talk about one of his most well-known books Hidden Ulster: Protestants and the Irish Language. The book launch and talk, will be followed by a screening of the recently made film Mná na nGlinntí(presented by former President Mary McAleese) and an open discussion, chaired by writer and historian Séamas Mac Annaidh with additional panel member Fiona Crudden (FODC) and participants including visitors from Trillick Arts and Cultural Society.
