Thu, Jun 07, 2018

Féasta Sráide Mhaigh Cuilinn is going to be a very special day for Moycullen. We will be reliving memories of our past, whilst embracing our modern day use of Irish. During the 1930’s and 1940’s Moycullen locals used to have a similar celebration close to where An Furán is now. Féasta Sráide Mhaigh Cuilinn is going to be an Irish day, or “Lá Gaelach,” behind the Coach House pub from 2-6pm to have a “Street Feast” with a difference. Noel for the Coach House has kindly agreed to let us take over his car-park and transform it into a “Hub na Gaeilge” or Irish hub for the day.
