Sunday last April 29th saw an interesting if somewhat different day here in Belfast’s Gaeltacht Quarter when up to forty members of the Travelling Surgical Society of Great Britainand Ireland paid a visit to the heart of Belfast’s Irish Language community as part of their latest study visit to Ireland.


Members of the Society and their life partners are spending the period from April 28th until May 5th visiting Belfast, Dublin and other locations to avail of the opportunity of sharing with and learning from their fellow surgeons, however since its foundation in 1924 the Society has always made a point of incoporating a social side to the learning experience of members. On this occasion Society Secretary Mr Terry Irwin, current consultant surgeon in the NHS Colorectal Unit  and former Director of Surgery at the Royal Victoria Hospital chose for the Belfast leg of the visit to bring Society members to Cultúrlann MacAdam Ó Fiaich so as to allow an opportunity for experiencing what Belfast’s Irish language and cultural community has to offer.


During their visit to the Gaeltacht Quarter’s premier cultural centre, Cultúrlann MacAdam Ó Fiaich, the visitors enjoyed a traditional meal of Guinness Stew and Champ, accompanied by traditional Irish music, before retiring to the new Dillon Gallery where they were entertained by Irish dancers before a presentation and demonstration on the art of bodhrán making and playing and a talk from Forbairt Feirste director Jake MacSiacais on the history of the Irish Language in Belfast.


Speaking after Sunday’s visit MacSiacais said:


“This was a great opportunity for learning and exchange for all concerned. Some of our visitors got the opportunity for the first time to get to know Belfast’s Irish speaking community while others had the chance to get to know us a little better. We also had the opportunity to get better acquainted with a group of people who often have our lives in their hands and therefore it was nice to see their human, interesting and inquisitive side and to learn that surgical society is every bit as diverse within itself as is any other part of the community.


” I trust that their visit was enjoyable and that it encourages inquisitiveness among members of the Travelling Surgical Society and their friends as regards the work in which we are all engaged here in what is one of the wonderful and interesting quarters of the city of Belfast.”
