Teanga an Phobail/ Language of the community/people – Conn Fyfe, Irish Dancer, Seven Towers, Ballymena

Glór Dhal Riada is the local Irish Language and Culture development group that was established within the Ballymena and Glenravel Area in 2008. The group’s name is appropriate to the Mid and East Antrim area as it is derived from the ancient Gaelic overkingdom of Dal Riada that included north east Ulster and a sizable portion of western Scotland and its Islands. Dal Riada was founded by Gaelic Irish migrants who brought their Language, and writings with them. This performance is from Conn Fyfe, an Irish Dancer from Seven Towers, Ballymena.
