By early 20th century, Southeast Ulster had become the last surviving Gaeltacht region of the eastern seaboard with many families of native Irish speakers still scattered throughout this rural landscape, including the greater Crossmaglen district whose Irish speaking inhabitants would also become one of the most important and prolific sources for this area’s rich oral song tradition that has survived for over 400 years.
As part of Ceol na Croise organised by Colleen Savage in conjunction with Gaelphobal Ard Mhacha Theas and the Ring of Gullion Landscape Partnership, we are pleased to offer a Songs of Oriel Coach Tour with local historian Una Walsh.
Departing ÓFiaich Square Crossmaglen at 10am and returning at 4pm.
