Éigse Oidhreacht An Chaisleáin Nua, Newcastle
Éigse is a celebration of life in the Breac Gaeltacht of Newcastle, much of it through the substantial writings about the life and times of Shéamais Ó Maolchathaigh. The group holds an annual Festival celebrating all things relating to Gaelic language and heritage. The group is headquartered in the ‘Músaem’ building in the centre of Newcastle village.
In the beautiful setting of South Tipperary you will have a unique opportunity with other interested and motivated people to experience the strong cultural heritage of Newcastle, the ‘only’ (former) Breac-Ghaeltacht in all of Tipperary, located at the foothills of the majestic Knockmealdown Mountains on the banks of the River Suir.
Whatever activity you choose to be part of during the festival, an interesting and informative weekend is assured.
Here you will find details of the 2013 event running from June 28th to 30th & here you’ll find details of the 2012 festival, held from June 29th to July 1st.
