There was a full house at the Public Record Office headquarter’s in Belfast’s Titanic Quarter on Wednesday, March 12th for a tlak on the theme of Belfast’s Irish Speaking Community, given by one of the founders of Belfast’s Shaws Road Gaeltacht, Brighid Mhic Sheáin.


The event was a joint effort by Forbairt Feirste and the Public Record Office and was the first ever Irish language event hosted in the Public Record Office. Forbairt Feirste director, Jake Mac Siacais, chaired the event and in his introduction he thanked the staff of the Public Record Office, in particular director Maggie Smith and her colleagues, Stephen Scarth and Glynn Kelso for all their support and enthusiasm for the event.


Brighid provided an inspirational talk, full of detail and information, from her personal experience as an activist and central figure in the development of Irish language affairs in Belfast. A simultaneous translation of her talk was provided by Sean Ó Muireagáin for around a third of those present who had insufficient Irish to fully understand Brighid’s presentation. The talk was held in the PRO lecture theatre and the event organisers expressed delight at the event having attracted a full house.


Lorraine Bourke of the Public Record office gave a short presentation on the work of the office before introducing director Maggie Smith to officially close the event. Maggie thanked all those who had attended and thanked those who had worked to ensure its success and promised further Irish language events in the future. She also asked that anyone with Irish Language documents or collections of public significance consider contacting staff of the Public Record Office to discuss the possibility of having these preserved and protected for posterity.
