Conradh na Gaeilge

Number 6 Harcourt Street, today the Ceannáras of Conradh na Gaeilge, was the headquarters and bank of Sinn Féin in 1916 as well as the HQ for Cumann na mBan. In the period before and after the Rising, many of the great names in Irish history (including Michael Collins, Arthur Griffith, Eamon De Valera and Constance Markieviz) worked here.

Take a rare chance to see behind the doors of Number 6, with a series of tours of the building in Irish and English. Different floors of the building will host a range of events, including a reenactment of the Sinn Féin bank; a print workshop for children inspired by An Claidheamh Soluis; music and dance sessions; and a 1916-themed book shop.

A café in Club Chonradh na Gaeilge will serve free Snasta Blasta coffee.

 

Bhí Uimhir 6 Sráid Fhearchair, Ceannáras Chonradh na Gaeilge, in úsáid mar Cheannáras agus banc ag Sinn Féin i 1916, agus bhíodh Cumann na mBan ag cruinniú anseo go rialta. Sa tréimhse roimh an Éirí Amach agus ina dhiaidh chaith cuid de phearsana móra stair na hÉireann seal ag obair anseo (ina measc, Mícheál Ó Coileáin, Art Ó Gríofa, Eamonn De Valera, agus an Chuntéis Markieviz).

Tapaigh an deis cuairt a thabhairt ar fhoirgneamh a raibh ról cinntitheach aici i stair na hÉireann, le turais threoraithe i mBéarla agus i nGaeilge le linn an lae. Beidh réimse imeachtaí éagsúla ar siúl ar fud an tí, ina measc: (athchruthú ar Bhanc Shinn Féin; ceardlann clódóireachta bunaithe ar An Claidheamh Soluis do pháistí, seisiún ceoil agus rince, agus Siopa Leabhar 1916.)

Cuirfidh caife speisialta i gClub Chonradh na Gaeilge caife Snasta Blasta ar fáil saor in aisce.
