Shared cultural heritage falls under spotlight

A series of talks this month will explore different aspects of shared cultural heritage.

The Derry City Council talks will cover language, oral traditions, place-names, folklore, music and history.

The next talk in the series explores English as it is spoken in Ireland, and takes place next Wednesday in the Minor Hall in Londonderry’s Guildhall.

This talk offers an insight into Hiberno-English, the dialect of English spoken in Ireland and investigates the influence of the Irish language on the way English is spoken in Ireland.

The Ulster Protestant Gaelic tradition is the subject of the second talk on Wednesday week with a look at the history of the Gaelic tradition among Protestant Planters.

The final talk, Our Shared Musical Heritage takes place on Tuesday February 23 in the Whittaker Suite, Guildhall. All begin at 7.30pm, admission is free.
