Pop-Up Gaeltacht with Aindrias De Staic.
Ah, the Gaeltacht days of youth, when we’d be packed off to spend the summer brushing up on the ‘cúpla focal’... The Bean an Tí’s soda bread, ranganna in the morning (yawn), spórt in the afternoon, but the best thing of all, an céilí san oíche!
The fear an tí for the evening will be Aindrias De Staic. A proud native of Maigh Eo, Aindrias is a well-known actor, comic storyteller, musician and TV presenter. He’ll keep you entertained on the mic, he’ll guide you through the damhsa, and he has been known to give a high kick or two of his own! Described in The Scotsman as “a wild-eyed shock of Celtic unpredictability”, you can be guaranteed there won’t be a dull moment nuair atá De Staic sa teach!!
‘An ndéanfaidh tú rince liom?’ ‘Déanfaidh agus fáilte!’, and we’d be off, ag damhsa Ionsaí na hInse and Ballaí Luimnigh. Later, we might be found in a field ag canadh Óró Sé do Bheatha Bhaile, Trasna na dTonnta or the legendary Niamh Cinn Óir...Your first time away from home, your first crush ... and then, your first póg? B’fhéidir?!
Well, here’s your chance to relive those great days of spraoi agus craic. Join us for Cathair na Mart’s first ever Pop-Up Gaeltacht as we delve into the memories of summers past and go back to the glorious Gaeltacht days. Don your ‘bróga damhsa’ for the big céilí, agus brush up on your cúpla focal, mar níl céad Béarla a labhairt!
Find out what Bean an Tí you’ll be staying with, and most importantly ... be ready to have the CRAIC!
I gcomhar le...
