Comhrá le Nadia Dobrianska : Idir Dhá Shaol

Wednesday 6th March 2024

Comhrá le Nadia Dobrianska : Idir Dhá Shaol – Óstán Shirley Arms, 20:00-21:30

Between Two Worlds : A conversation with Nadia Dobrianska – Shirley Arms Hotel, 8pm – 9:30pm.

An evening of tri-lingual conversation with Nadia Dobrianska, a Ukrainian human rights defender and fluent Irish speaker who has been living in Ireland since the Russian invasion in February 2022.

Nadia Dobrianska will tell the story of how she fell in love with Irish in 2019, her involvement in the Irish traditional music scene in Kyiv before the Russian invasion, and the parallels between Ukrainian and Irish cultures.  The evening will be an opportunity to introduce members of the Ukrainian community to Irish language and culture and to highlight for local people how Irish culture and language is viewed outside of Ireland.  Due to the makeup of the audience, the event will be bi-lingual but we will also facilitate contributions in Ukrainian to make everyone feel welcome.

There will also be a performance by Glór na Carraige, a recently established Cór Gaeilge which was set up in 2023.  Admission is free and the event will be followed by a music session in Deery’s lounge from 9:30pm to 11pm.  All welcome.
