Dinnseanchas l 2008

Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill + Bernadette Ní Choitir

In earrach na bliana 2008, chuidigh Nuala agus Bernadette le grúpa pobail as ceantair Theilinn – Gleann Cholm Cille – Cill Chartaigh, i nDeisceart Dhún na nGall, Dinnseanchas áitiúil a bhailiú agus a thaifeadadh. Faoi Mheán Fómhair 2008, bhí na scéalta logánta seo aistrithe isteach ina saothair dearcealaíne. Cuireadh na torthaí ar taispeántas le linn Féile na gCruach Ghorm. Fuair an togra maoiniú agus tacaíocht ó Ealaín na Gaeltachta, Comhairle Chontae Dhún na nGall, An Chomhairle Ealaíon, Coiste Gairmoideachais Dhún na nGall, Oideas Gael agus Áislann Chill Charthaigh. Rinne Ciarán Fogarty scannán dar teideal ‘Tobar Cnapastún’.

Roghnaigh Nuala agus Bernadette Dinnseanchas ‘Cnoc Áine’ agus rinne siad forbairt ar an taispeántas ilmheán agus ildisciplín, ‘Snáithín Áine’, a cuireadh ar taispeáint sa Ghailearaí i mí Dheireadh Fómhair, 2009. Bhí an togra seo maoinithe ag Ealaín na Gaeltachta, An Chomhairle Ealaíon agus Comhairle Chontae Dhún na nGall. Ba é Danny McCafferty a rinne an eagarthóireacht dheiridh scannánaíochta agus fuaime ar an ábhar digiteach a bhí in éineacht leis an taispeántas, bunaithe ar phíosaí scannáin a rinne Ciarán Fogarty.

Placelore

Ceardlann na gCroisbhealaí of Falcarragh is busying itself for a much awaited exhibition opening. The project Dinnseanchas l began in March 2008. Renowned poet Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill Cork artist Bernadette Cotter assisted a community group from the Teelin – Glencolmcille – Kilcar region of South Donegal to gather and record local Dinnseanchas. By September 2008 these ‘placelores’ had been transformed into visual art works. The results were then exhibited during the Blue Stack Festival. Participants of this work were Caitlín Mhic Fionngaile, Seosaimh Ó Geallachóir, Mick McGinley, Séan Ó Beírn, Séan Ó Bradaigh, Máire Mhic Fhionngaile, Máire Ní Chasaide, Caroline Ní Chasaide, John Matthews, Christina Daly, Carmel Butler, Dymphna Towell and Class 6 Kilcar National School.

Dinnseanchas ll followed on from this when Nuala and Bernadette selected the Dinnseanchas ‘Cnoc Áine’ and developed an extraordinary multi media and multi disciplinary exhibition ‘Snaithín Áine’, or Áine’s Thread’. Included in the show is a newly commissioned poem by Nuala and beautifully accomplished drawings by Bernadette as well as installation work. A commissioned DVD documenting the entire project will also be screened as well as recordings of 10 local Dinnseanchas and a short film entitled ‘Tobar Cnapastún’ developed by Ciaran Fogarty. 

  There will be a public launch by Minister Éamon Ó Cuív in An Gailearaí na gCroisbhealaí, Falcarragh on Saturday evening at 6.30pm. The exhibition is free and everyone is welcome to attend and meet Nuala, Bernadette and the participants. The project was generously funded and supported by Ealaín na Gaeltachta, The Arts Council of Ireland, Donegal County Council, Donegal VEC, Oideas Gael and The Áislann Kilcar.
