The theme can be a person, a place, an organisation or any other aspect of that heritage. Lectures, seminars and field trips explore various aspects of the theme. The weekend also includes music, song, and poetry in both concerts and informal sessions. The timing of the Éigse is intended as a celebration of the Brídeog /Biddy tradition celebrating Saint Bridget’s day, which is also a celebration of the coming of spring, regeneration and growth.
