The Fadgies

Meet at the Culturlann, 216 Falls Rd

Sunday 4 March Shows at 1pm, 3pm and 5pm

25min bi-lingual show,

Irish and English Set in a traditional red brick terrace house, Aisling Ghéar Theatre Co invites you into the world of The Fadgies - native Irish speakers from Omeath in Carlingford who settled and worked in Belfast’s famous markets. The Fadgies made a huge contribution to the economy of the city and also helped to create the city’s first Urban Gaeltacht Quarter. Many of their descendants later settled on the Falls Road - Mileady’s Fruit Shop at 243 Falls Rd survived until the 1990s and Stephen Marley had a fishmonger at 204 Falls Rd until the 1950s. The show is a fascinating insight into the period, packed with information and anecdotes:

Numbers are limited to 10.

Meet at the Cultúrlann, 216 Falls Rd, Belfast and enjoy a ‘cupán tae’ and a bun.

You will be guided to the venue within a short walking distance. Wrap up for warmth and expect to walk up and down stairs. In addition,

Aisling Ghear has worked in collaboration with a local artist, the arts programme at the Upper Springfield Development Trust and Club Óige na bhFál/Falls Road Youth Club to create a temporary public art piece to commemorate The Fadgies. This will be displayed at the front of the Cultúrlann.
