THIS Saturday sees Cruinniú na nÓg take place once again and Siamsa Tíre is heavily involved in the national day of free creativity for children and young people under the age of 18.

Delivered in partnership with local authorities and supported by RTÉ, the Cruinniú na nÓg programme includes all sorts of fun, free, and creative activities from workshops in graffiti art and stop-motion animation to coding and architecture.

Events are organised in every city, town, and village across the country.  Here in Tralee, Siamsa Tíre, the National Folk Theatre of Ireland in association with Cruinniú na nÓg and Kerry County Council has organised a whole day of free online activities to appeal to all the family.

The day kicks off with workshops in Irish song and dance.  Siamsa Tíre is known for showcasing the unique Munnix style of Irish dancing and this is an ideal opportunity to master a few simple steps or to learn a traditional Irish song from the National Folk Theatre repertoire.

Then there are online screenings, including a theatrical performance of Elfie the Pigeon, a cinematic screening of Film 134, and a concert of new and traditional Irish songs with Dervish frontwoman and multi-instrumentalist Cathy Jordan and traditional singer and flute player Nuala Kennedy.

Finally, the day ends with a Céilí in the Kitchen.  This online event invites everyone to join members of Siamsa Tíre’s Training Academy as they play music, sing, and dance to celebrate this day of creativity for children.
