Living and promoting Irish and Irish-American culture in the Southern California area. Its primary goal is to present and preserve our Irish culture by sponsoring events that will promote our “Irish dance, music, theatre, language, sports and all other aspects of our heritage.”
“Gaelic,” the ancient, but still living language of Ireland, will be featured in song, poetry, and verse, on the Seanachie (story teller) Stage at the Great American Irish Fair. One of the oldest living languages in Europe, it is still spoken in areas today in Ireland called the “Gaeitacht” (pronounced gwate-talkt) and by a large community of the Irish in Southern California. The Fair visitor will have the opportunity to learn a few phrases and even enroll in Irish language classes. One of the favorites is the Genealogy Booth where one can trace their heritage and even get a Coat of Arms to hang on the wall and by visiting with one of the many groups in Ancient Tara.
