Arts in Action in partnership with Cúirt present An Chartlann Bheo: Animating the Archive,

Dr. Deirdre Ní Chonghaile (pictured above) introduces the work of song collector, Tomás Ó Máille, along with excerpts of his recordings from the archives of NUI Galway and three special guests – singers Sarah Ghriallais (winner of TG4 Gradam Ceoil Amhránaí na Bliana 2022), Mary Staunton, and Saileog Ní Cheannabháin – who will perform their own renditions of songs retrieved from Ó Máille’s recordings.

Tomás Ó Máille

Tomás Ó Máille (1880-1938) was the inaugural Professor of Irish at University College Galway. Appointed in 1909, he held that position until his premature death in 1938. A pioneer in many ways, Ó Máille’s greatest foresight was his commitment to the newest technology of his day – audio recording. Nearly a century ago, he created hundreds of recordings of Irish speakers from Connacht and County Clare, and assisted the recording work of other collectors and scholars too. This event sees one of Ireland’s most significant audio archives come to life and witnesses songs returning to their rightful place – in each community’s repertoire.

Ba é Tomás Ó Máille (1880-1938) an chéad Ollamh le Gaeilge i gColáiste na hOllscoile Gaillimh. Ceapadh sa phost é i 1909 agus lean sé ann nó go bhfuair sé bás go hanabaí in 1938. Ceannródaí ab ea an Máilleach ar mhórán bealaí ach is suntasach go háirithe mar a dhírigh sé ar nua-theicneolaíocht a linne fhéin – an taifeadadh fuaime. Chruthaigh sé na céadta taifeadadh fuaime de chainteoirí Gaeilge as Connacht agus as an gClár, agus chuidigh sé le bailitheoirí agus scoláirí eile taifeadtaí a dhéanamh freisin.

Sa cheolchoirm seo, cuirfidh an Dr. Deirdre Ní Chonghaile i láthair Tomás agus a shaothar, cloisfear blaiseadh beag dá thaifeadtaí ó Leabharlann na hOllscoile, agus déanfaidh triúr aíonna speisialta – Sarah Ghriallais, Mary Staunton agus Saileog Ní Cheannabháin – a leagan féin d’amhráin as cartlann an Mháilligh a chanadh. San ócáid aonraic seo, beidh an chartlann ina steillbheatha, beo ar ardán, agus na hamhráin a chruinnigh Tomás ar ais i mbéal an phobail. Seo ceiliúradh ar mhór-obair a rinne an Máilleach ag cruinniú saibhreas na n-ealaíon Gaeilge ó gach contae taobh thiar den tSionainn.

Beidh an ócáid ​​seo ar siúl trí Ghaeilge agus Béarla / This event will take place through Irish and English.

The event is free.
