Eigse na Brideoige Festival 2019

Friday 1st February 2019 | Sunday 3rd 2019

Éigse na Brídeoige is a cultural festival which takes place every year during the first weekend in February. The events are spread over various centres in the Gaeltacht areas of Iveragh in South Kerry.

Each year a different theme celebrates and investigates some aspect of the rich social and cultural heritage of the area. 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.
