‘Aisling Gheal’ Screens at Tradfest

Dónal Ó Céilleachair’s documentary Aisling Gheal will screen at the IFI, Dublin as part of Tradfest this weekend on Saturday 25th January at 3:30pm.

The film quietly observes the participants of a sean-nós singing programme in the Munster Gaeltacht. Focusing on the relationship between renowned singer and teacher Máire Ní Chéileachair and her talented student, 11-year-old Shahira Apraku, the film immerses us in age-old musical traditions while challenging our notions of ‘Irishness’ in the process.

Shahira Apraku and Máire Ní Chéileachair, one of the greatest living sean-nós singers, will perform after the screening on January 25th.
