BELLTABLE:Connect presents a series of audio readings to mark the Celtic beginning of Spring this February.
What is Imbolc or Imbolg as it’s often referred to? Many might know it from school as Brigid’s Day.
Imbolc is a Gaelic traditional festival marking the beginning of spring. Traditionally it was held on 1 February as it lands about halfway between the winter solstice and the spring equinox.
To celebrate the ancient festival Belltable has produced three new adaptations of Irish stories.
These contemporary versions are inspired by the time of the Tuatha de Dannan – long before the Celts ever came to Ireland, when Gods and Goddesses were common and the fairy people still lived over the ground.
These stories of Étaín, Emer and the Ulaid are written, directed and read by some of your favourite Limerick artists.
Each 30-minute story is released on Friday, February 5, 12 and 19, for you to listen to on your walk, in the car, or at home.
