What we're about

Kansans interested in Irish culture: unite!

Gaeilge, aka "Irish", is a language that is in much need of some love. Many online resources are widely available--if scattered--for learning the language, but the ability to use it is in conversation is limited to about 0% for most of us. Hey, we can change that. 😉

Irish music, on the other hand, is plentiful and far more popular around the globe! It is melody distilled. Deceptively simple, but no less magnetic, it's appeal is not bound to one generation; rather, to the innate love of solid melodies that we share as humans from the crib to the car.

This group exists to enrich Wichita with the oral and musical arts of Ireland: the language and the music. So let's get to it! Let's share these beautiful traditions with ICT; go háirithe, le cheile. 😊

DISCLAIMER:
Unless you bring it,
• you won't find "kiss me, I'm Irish" here.
• you won't find a pot of gold.
• "top o' the morning" is dead here.
• you won't be scrutinzed over the green you are or aren't wearing.
• you won't get hurled on by a bloke wearing a green shamrock hat who couldn't make it to the bathroom in time.
• you won't get attacked by leprechauns, probably.
• we do not celebrate "St. Patty's Day": "Paddy" is a person and "patty" is aoileach bó.

And most importantly,

• you won't have to deal with haughty jerks here. Having a resistance to stereotypes or cultural fumbles doesn't make anyone "better" than anyone else, even though this isn't the kind of group you would want to join just for St. Patrick's Day.

• Tá sé i gcónaí Lá Fhéile Pádraig anseo.
