Belfast Gaels had cause for celebration on Saturday November 28th at the Annual Cothaigh Lecture and Dinner when Belfast native Marcas Ó Murchu bestowed a collection of 400 hours of tapes which he has recorded of Belfast Irish speakers at various events and functions.


For over forty years Marcas faithfully recorded priceless material at various events in the life of Belfast Irish speaking community, between sessions in Cumann Chluain Ard, the first establishment of Irish Medium Education on the Falls Road, the early days of the Shaws Road Gaeltacht, social nights and much else besides.


Accepting the collection, which is accompanied by a 60,000 word catalogue, Sean Mistéí, chair of Fobrairt Feirste said that the people of the Falls were now custodians of a priceless collection which would now be preserved in the Living Gaelic Archive.
