Colloquium Series: Éire – Athbheochan/Revival 1893-2018
November 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
In 2018 the Gaelic League/Conradh na Gaeilge marked 125 years of Irish language revival with a yearlong celebration titled Bliain na Gaeilge 2018. The bilingual traveling exhibition “Éire: Athbheochan/Revival 1893-2018,” created for this occasion, documents aspects of language revival during this 125 year period including teaching, culture, community participation, Gaeltachts, industry and American influence/support.
This exhibition was generously loaned to us by the Consulate General of Ireland in Chicago. The Eoin McKiernan Library is proud to be host of this remarkable display. In this series this bilingual exhibition will be presented by Connemara native Lavinia Finnerty.
Free to the public.
