The Spirit of Irish

Sep 21, 2018, 04:03 AM

Host: Manchán Magan

Guests: Ciara Ní É, Billy MacFhloinn and Gabriel Rosenstock

The Irish language can be a battleground, a hot potato, a hornet’s nest, but let’s step away from all that …. Let’s instead try to explore the essence of the language, the life-pulse that runs through it. There is an energy encoded within teanga na Gaeilge – a mind-set, a spirit, as well as innumerably folk memories. Join Manchán Magan with guests Ciara Ní É, Billy MacFhloinn and Gabriel Rosenstock to explore this ancient, native means of communication that has carried forth our culture within it and still impacts our culture in direct and tangible ways today.
