Seachtain na Gaeilge
March is the month to promote Irish language.
We have promoted SNAG with live events in
the community for the last 6 years, based
on singing and teaching you to sing in Irish.
As the folks at SNAG put it, expert or beginner
it makes no difference. All efforts are
appreciated. Who would discourage beginners
from becoming acquainted with Irish (Gaeilge)…
Locally we held events at the Celtic Ranch
in Weston, and Brownes in Kansas City this year.
A 3rd location on March 12 see us in Louisburg,
Kansas at the St. Patricks night dinner.
Books in Gaeilge from Kansas City
More on this in next blog… who in Kansas City
publishes hard bound books and songs, in Irish (Gaeilge)..
stay tuned tomorrow…

Sean Nos Singers
OLaughlin, who is the most published
author in Irish genealogy, is also a sean
nos singer with works appearing on
iTunes, Amazon and Spotify. Sean
nos mean ‘old style’, and these songs
are most often sung solo, in the Irish
language, with a sense of history.
Mike would like to make note of any
Sean Nos singers in the area, for
possible future collaborations. Several
of his albums are available on iTunes for review:
