Ciarán Bairéad and his Work in Claregalway 

 

 A celebration of the work of Ciarán Bairéad (1905-1976), one of the great collectors of Irish folklore.  The extensive, rich and varied materials he collected during his lifetime from the people of Claregalway, Turloughmore and further afield amount to a truly significant archive, whose importance has yet to be appreciated.

 
 Join us at Claregalway Castle, Claregalway, Saturday, 29 August, from 6.00pm to 8.30pm - to hear four distinguished scholars who are eminently well-qualified to speak on the archive, on Ciarán Bairéad and his times, and on the Irish language in Claregalway and environs.

 
 

The first two talks will be in English, the last two in Irish.

 

 
Contributions from the floor will be most welcome.

Ciarán Bairéad is a Shaothar i mBaile Chláir na Gaillimhe


 
Ceiliúradh ar shaothar Chiaráin Bhairéad (1905-1976), duine de mhórbhailitheoirí bhéaloideas na hÉireann. Is cnuasach thar a bheith luachmhar é an t-ábhar a bhailigh Ciarán ó phobal Bhaile Chláir agus a thimpeallacht i gcaitheamh a shaoil agus níl aitheantas cuí tugtha fós don tábhacht a bhaineann leis.

 
Bí linn ag Caisleán Bhaile Chláir na Gaillimhe ar an Satharn 29 Lúnasa, 6.00pm go 8.30pm - mar a dtabharfaidh ceathrar scoláirí oilte cuntas ar ghnéithe éagsúla d’obair an bhailiúcháin sa cheantar, ar shaol Chiaráin féin is saol a linne mar aon le scéal na Gaeilge i mBaile Chláir is a chomharsanacht.

 

I mBéarla a bheidh an chéad dá chaint agus i nGaeilge a bheidh an dá chaint dheireanacha.

 

Cuirfear fáilte mhór roimh fhreagairt nó ceisteanna ón úrlár.
