Traditional singer and folklore collector, Rachel Uí Fhaoláin will bring people together through music, poetry and story at a event in Gorey Library this Tuesday, March 14.

Organised in honour of Seachtain na Gaeilge, the event will also give people the chance to hear some songs in the traditional style from the children’s section of Rachel’s new intergenerational songbook, where young local voices are featured ‘ag canadh tríd na séasúir’. This free event will take place from 7 p.m. until 8 p.m. and booking is essential.
