Online

Cavan Library Service presents The Mummers Lines – a bilingual poetry & music performance by the Armagh Rhymers

Poems from your schooldays (Irish and English) which we hope will bring back fond memories.

The Armagh Rhymers are one of the most celebrated traditional music and theatre ensembles on the island of Ireland.

They have delighted audiences in schools, festivals throughout Ireland and around the world. Through music, storytelling and drama, they provide an experience that is both entertaining and educational. Their colourful costumes evoke a sense of tradition and history and encapsulate the spirit of the Wren boys and the ancient house visiting traditions of Ireland, where the kitchen floor became the stage.

Cavan Library Service presents

Bilingual talk / Léacht dhátheangach at 8pm

Ardscoil Bhreifne Cavan’s Irish College, Glangevlin 1920-1924” le Aogán Ó Fearghaíl.

The ‘Irish College’ in Glangevlin was the last Gaeltacht to exist in County Cavan. In West Cavan native Irish speakers were still comparatively numerous towards the end of the nineteenth century and this was particularly true of the area west of the Gap. The Gaelic League was established in County Cavan in 1901. There was a branch in Glan in 1909 and by this time Irish was taught in some of the local schools.

Aogán Ó Fearghaíl is a retired Principal of Dernakesh National School. He has a lifetime of  interest and  research undertaken into aspects of Irelands History and Heritage.  He is former President of the GAA and he is currently School Placement Tutor with the Institute of Education, DCU.
