2. Work Camp

Irish-speaking youths from inner-city Dublin and the Mayo Gaeltacht clear ocean debris from the beaches for a bonfire on the 24th of June: ‘Oíche Tine Sheáin’ (St John’s night bonfire). From very different social backgrounds, the two groups had a strong link in the Irish language - a link which grew into respect and friendship.

 



Why we renew our Connections to France and Germany

3. The Irish and the Germans – Cousins of old

image:

 

Irish and German connections go back 5,000 years. Both speak unhybridised Indo-European languages. Living together as early Celtic and Germanic people, their neighbours included Indo-Iranians. (A surprise connection to the Finns is revealed.) Bonds formed during times of adventure and valour: we celebrate these.

 

 

4. Historic Links to France and Germany

Irish monks and scholars spread in numbers throughout France and Germany after the fall of Rome. Thus began an Irish presence in recorded history. Thus began European solidarity under the flag of learning and cooperation. Thus began the story of Gaelic people, the pen for continuing which is now in our hands.
