Our Week of "Facebook Lives" - June 29th to July 3rd, 2020

Wow, what an incredible week! Hard to believe it's over already. During our week of Facebook Lives we had a total of 4,850 participants from 46 countries joining in LIVE and a further 141,400 views of the videos afterwards! We hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did and that you can join us in Kilmovee (all going to plan) for our 10th Annual Seosamh Mac Gabhann Summer School next year from Sunday, 27th June to Friday, 2nd July.

Thank you so much for your amazing support of our Summer School fundraiser for Mayo Roscommon Hospice Foundation with over €4,500 raised. Thanks for all your lovely pictures helping to capture the event, we have posted a compilation video on our Facebook Page.

We would also like to say a huge thank you to our tutors. As I am sure you will agree, they were absolutely amazing and all the feedback was so positive. The videos from their tutorials are available on our Facebook page for you to look back on. We would like to thank the Summer School Committee who made this week possible and help to organise and run the Seosamh Mac Gabhann Summer School on a voluntary basis every year.

Finally, we would like to acknowledge the support of our sponsors: The Department of Culture, Heritage and The Gaeltacht, Mayo County Council, Kilmovee Bingo and Comhaltas. A special word of thanks to Minister Michael Ring, Senator John O’Mahony and Councillors John Caulfield and Gerry Murray for helping to secure this sponsorship. Míle buíochas!

Join us in Kilmovee, County Mayo in 2021 for the 10th Annual Seosamh Mac Gabhann Summer School - Bígí linn!
