Oileán Cléire

A recent event organised on behalf of Blian na Gaeilge brought people from all over the country including Co. Laois to the Island of Cape Clear off the coast of Baltimore.

It was a weekend of walks, fishing, photography, and tours on this beautiful Island where the people were most welcoming. The people attending the weekend also took part in a music session in a local pub on the Saturday. It was a great fun weekend with an emphasis on using whatever Irish you had.
