An Evening with St Brigid and Úna Gan A Gúna

Úna Gan a Gúna: Irish Women’s Oral History Collective

St Brigid’s Day has always been a significant occasion in Ireland’s religious calendar. Now a national holiday, St Brigid’s Day is also an opportunity to celebrate women and their stories. Spend an evening with Úna Gan A Gúna to take a look at the woman behind the saint, hear from ‘St Brigid’, and learn more about uncovering women’s stories in the modern day.

About Úna Gan a Gúna

We are an Irish, feminist collective dedicated to ensuring that the memories, experiences, and lives of Irish women are documented and preserved. We believe in capturing the breadth of Irish women’s experiences, from saint to sinner, student to sage, home-maker to office worker. Ireland’s history has traditionally focused on the lives of men, we are determined to make it richer and fuller by including women’s stories. Whether you’re near or far from home, your story is part of the history of Ireland and we would love to record it.

  • Fund essential equipment like recorders and microphones
  • Train volunteers to record and archive oral histories

Tickets are Free however donations are suggested as follows:

We are a small grassroots organisation Your donation, no matter the amount, will make such a difference to our mission.

 

About the Irish Cultural Centre:
The ICC opened its doors in 1995 as the premiere Irish Centre dedicated to arts and culture in the UK. In 2017 the ICC completed a major rebuilding project and welcomed people back into a state of the art building with auditorium, meeting rooms, and educational facilities. The ICC has three main programmes:Arts & Culture, Education , and Community Outreach. Through those major programmes we deliver a large number of events and gatherings spanning all genres of interest within Irish Culture to all who want to engage. 

The ongoing cost of living crisis and rising service costs challenge The ICC.

Your donation is a lifeline, sustaining our free or low-cost community activities, combating loneliness and promoting well-being.

Your generosity ensures we continue nurturing access to Irish community and culture at our beautiful Centre.
