Brigidfest Brigidfest

  • Start / Tús:
  • 14.02.16

Brigidfest is a community event that honours and celebrates Irish women and has been held annually since 2004 at the Celtic Club in Melbourne.

Bhí Brigidfest ar siúl gach bliain ó 2004 i leith ag an gClub Ceilteach i Melbourne. Is ócáid phobail í an fhéile a léiríonn meas ar mhná na hÉireann agus a dhéanann iad a cheiliúradh. Bíonn an ócáid ar siúl ar an Domhnach thart ar an 1 Feabhra, lá féile Naomh Bríd.

In 2016 to commemorate the centenary of the Easter Rising and in line with the Brigidfest committee’s commitment to celebrate Irish women, the speaker will be Maeve O’Leary who will be talking about her grandmother Lucy Agnes Smith, a member of Cumann na mBan, who was involved in the fighting at the GPO during the Easter Rising.

The Embassy of Ireland is pleased to support this event which highlights the important, but often forgotten, role played by women in the 1916 Rising.

Beidh an ócáid seo ar siúl in 2016 i gcomhair chomóradh céad bliain Éirí Amach na Cásca. Ag teacht le tiomantas choiste na féile Brigidfest do mhná na hÉireann a cheiliúradh, beidh Maeve O'Leary ag caint faoina seanmháthair, Lucy Agnes Smith, ball de Chumann na mBan, a bhí páirteach sa troid in Ardoifig an Phoist le linn Éirí Amach na Cásca.

Tá áthas ar Ambasáid na hÉireann tacaíocht a thabhairt don ócáid, lena leagtar béim ar an ról tábhacht, a ligtear i ndearmad go minic, a bhí ag na mná in Éirí Amach 1916.
