An interesting Irish language event will be held in Dublin's
Christ Church cathedral on Saturday 11 October 2008.
Choral Evensong in the Anglican cathedral tradition, but
entirely in Irish (Urnaí na Nóna), will be held at 5.00pm
sung by the cathedral choir. The music will include the
recently composed settings of the responses and canticles,
'Cainticí Mhuire agus Shimeoin' by Simon MacHale, and
an anthem 'Bí, a Íosa, im chroise' by Ian Sexton. Afterwards
at 6.00pm, a reception for the Irish language community
will be held in the cathedral crypt. Wine and refreshments
will be available. All are warmly welcomed.

The event will celebrate the cultural links fostered by
Christ Church with the Irish language in recent years:
the regular services held there by Cumann Gaelach
na hEaglaise; the joint festival held with Colmcille
last year and the summer school on the celtic revival
held with Áras Éanna on Inis Oírr in 2006. The dean of
Christ Church, the Very Revd Dermot Dunne, said:
"I warmly welcome all Irish speakers to this celebration
of the Gaelic tradition of both the Church of Ireland and
Christ Church".
