Spreagadh an Cheoil: Learn Irish Through Song!

Join us for a special workshop on St. Patrick’s Day weekend, as renowned singer and scholar Lillis Ó Laoire treats us to a workshop on Irish folk songs and how we can use music to learn Irish!

Foghlaimeoidh rannpháirtithe cúpla amhrán i nGaeilge, agus cuirfear béim ar fhoghraíocht agus ar ghnásanna cainte. Pléifear scéal agus brí na n-amhrán fosta. Seanamhráin dhúchasacha den chuid is mó a bheidh i gceist, agus beidh cinn éadroma agus cinn throma againn. Bealach maith iad na hamhráin teacht isteach ar fhuaimeanna na Gaeilge, agus beidh cumas níos forbartha ag an té a dhéanfas an cheardlann seo i dtaca leis na fuaimeanna ag a dheireadh.

Amhránaí agus scoláire é Lillis Ó Laoire. Tá suim ar leith aige in amhráin Ghaeilge. Bhí sé ina Ollamh le Gaeilge in Ollscoil na Gaillimhe go dtí 2023. Bhuaigh sé Corn Uí Riada 1991 agus 1994 agus ba é Amhránaí na Bliana TG4 in 2020.

Participants will learn a few songs in Irish, and emphasis will be placed on pronunciation and idioms. The story and meaning of the songs will also be discussed. We will focus mostly on old folk songs, both light and serious in tone. Songs are a good way to learn the sounds of Irish, and attendees will have greater mastery of this aspect of the language by the end of the workshop.

Lillis Ó Laoire is a singer and scholar. He is particularly interested in Irish songs. He was Professor of Irish at the University of Galway until 2023. He won the Uí Riada Cup in 1991 and 1994, and he was the TG4 Singer of the Year in 2020.
