Celebrating contributions to the Irish Language

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.
