Introduction to an Irish Rambling House

Aug 19, 2014, 08:51 AM

This is a great overview on what an Irish Rambling House was about from Inishowenians Tony McLaughlin and J.P. Bradley. Known as a Ceilidhing House having Big Nights up in Inishowen, other parts of Ireland would have had Oíche Airnéals or Scoraíochts - whatever way you call it, they were houses in rural Ireland that became the entertainment centres of the locality for that night with stories, music and maybe some newspaper reading, card playing or dancing taking place.

Hear plenty more about Rambling Houses from our sister site, Rambling House, with full audio available on the complete radio documentary series: http://www.ramblinghouse.ie
