Govanhill has long been home to a vibrant Irish community as indicated by the presence of Conradh na Gaeilge (Irish language society), Feis Ghlaschú , Gaelic Athletic Association, Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann (Society of the Musicians of Ireland) and the 1916 Rising Centenary Committee (Scotland). Come along and learn more about the local Irish community, as expressed through the work of some of its cultural, sporting and heritage organisations. Stephen Coyle will talk about “‘We Will Rise Again’; Ireland, Scotland and the Easter Rising” and the links Govanhill had with the Irish War of Independence and Éimhin Ó Dunaigh about the Irish-speaking
community in Glasgow.
