The music, the literature and the dance of Ireland have been brought to the world by its emigrants. But, what about our ancient language?

In 2013, radio producer Judy-Meg Ní Chinnéide travelled to Glasgow, Berlin, Manchester and Paris to make a programme about Irish language organisation, Conradh na Gaeilge. Judy-Meg Ní Chinnéide is a radio producer working in both Irish and English, and specialising in radio documentaries, drama and children’s programmes. She is also the Development & Training Officer for Raidió na Life.

In this talk at EPIC, as part of Seachtain na Gaeilge, she will introduce you to some of the people that she met, in a journey that began in Glasgow’s Govanhill and ended on the banks of the Seine in Paris. Along with new additional audio from the London branch of Conradh na Gaeilge, she will explore the history and the motivations of some of the diverse communities that are embracing the Irish language abroad.

(This talk will include subtitled audio and fluency in Irish is not required)
