Tune in to the Glens Centre YouTube channel on Friday, June 26 at 8 PM, to hear poems, stories and songs inspired by Lunasa. The cycle of the year that began with the dark of Samhain is crowned by the brightness of Lugh, and by the harvest festival held in his name. As part of our Lunasa workshop we visited the Shannon Pot and the Cavan Burren, an extraordinary landscape of weathered limestone and megalithic monuments crafted by Ireland’s first farmers.
This episode will feature writing from Tom Sigafoos, Paula Lahiff, Shane Leavy, Dermot Lahiff and Monica Corish; and singing from Tara Baoth Mooney and Maggie Kilcoyne. This event is a fundraiser for North West STOP Suicide Prevention, which provides counselling support for people at risk of suicide. Donations can be made through their website, or through Facebook.
