Gaeltacht in the City (Gaeltacht na Cathrach)

Fíbín sa Taibhdhearc

Fíbín sa Taibhdhearc will transform Middle Street into a dreamlike pop-up Gaelteacht. Led by a brass band audiences will be dazzled by a series of surreal performance art pieces erupting on every corner of the street. Audiences will experience floating through a misty, ethereal Buttermilk Lane, fishermen choirs, currach dancers, barber shop quartets, caged aerial performers, trad bands, video mapping to a live funk band, an ancient phone-box that plays ceilí music, and the launch of Caife an Taibhdhearc.


Artists include…

Fiachra Davoren, Sibéal Davitt, Julie Feeney, Kate Finnegan, Galvian Way, Grooviculous, Macmathúna, and the 424 Route Brass Band.


Gaeltacht in the City (Gaeltacht na Cathrach) is funded by Galway City Council, the Arts Council and the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sports and Media as part of the Culture Night Late Night Events Programme.
