Lá Teaghlaigh agus Pop Up Gaeltacht - Learpholl

Celebrate the Liverpool Irish Festival with family and friends in a day incorporating music, talks and activities for everyone to enjoy, across the day.

Delivered in partnership with National Museums Liverpool, with contributions from Liverpool Comhaltas (celebrating their 60th anniversary) Melody Makers and the Institute of Irish Studies at University of Liverpool this is a true highlight of the festival, where culture sharing, enjoyment and conviviality are at the centre of all we do.

Across the day, there will be various activities, including:

Carmel Uí Cheallaigh/Kelly

(Galway, ROI) reading from her Gaelic and English children’s books in the morning

Alison Little

will run mask making workshops throughout the day


Professor Mary Hickman chairs a Votes for Irish Citizens Abroad panel in the morning. The discussion and Q&A highlights the rights held by the Irish diaspora currently, what future referenda are considering and what Irish citizenship means/could mean – today and in future

Script Shop

…help pass the afternoon, performing two plays linking Liverpool and Ireland; Settled Score (Graham Scott) about a nurse accused of killing a former British soldier and Aftermath (Alex May), exploring James Larkin’s role in the 1913 Dublin Lock Out

Basil Abbott

…will perform his self-researched and penned 17 character court room drama The Flush Hall Murder presenting the real life case of a young man, attacked and left for dead on his way home from a Masonic meeting over 100 years ago. Vignettes throughout the day will support a full run through in the afternoon

Pop-up Gaeltacht

An bhfuil cúpla focail agat? There’s a good chance that if you understand that question, the answer is ‘Tá’.  Pop-Up Gaeltacht is an informal affair, where an Irish language speaker will be present in order that anyone wishing to share a few words (cúpla focal) of Gaelic can and is welcomed to do so. @PopUpGael
