Féile na Gréine
For a number of years Colmcille has supported the participation of Scottish Gaelic artists at the Summer Solstice festival, Féile na Gréine, in Waterville, Co Kerry.
In 2010, renowned Scottish poet Aonghas MacNeacail was delighted to be making a return to the festival for the second time in two years. The festival starts on Midsummer Day, and finishes with the traditional St. John’s Eve bonfire with sets and music.
Over the next three days and nights, festival goers celebrate midsummer with an arts festival that ranges across theatre, music, visual arts, poetry, film, children’s theatre and workshops. All of this in a state of the art centre, Teach Amergin in Waterville, Co. Kerry, amid some of the most beautiful scenery in Ireland.
