Oireachtas na Gaeilge- 28th October - 2nd November 2014
Oireachtas na Gaeilge is an annually held arts festival of Irish culture, which has run since the 1890s.
Based on the Welsh Eisteddfod, Oireachtas na Gaeilge runs for one week, featuring performances, demonstrations and competitions. The festival is held in Killarney this year from October, the 28th until November 2nd, when more than 10,000 people attend the seven-day event.
Some of the country's top sean-nós singers will compete for the coveted Corn Uí Riada and the best of our traditional freestyle dancers will take part in the sean-nós dancing finals. Local performers, young and old, are honing their musical skills and sharpening their competitive instincts in preparation for the competitions, which will be held in various venues in Killarney throughout the festival.
