Launch of 'Nasc' - traditional music and dance DVD by UL staff and students of Gaelscoil Chaladh an Treoigh

University of Limerick President, Professor Don Barry recently launched 'Nasc' - a DVD of traditional music, songs and dance produced by University of Limerick staff in conjunction with 220 students from Gaelscoil Chaladh an Treoigh, Limerick. The DVD was part of an outreach project between UL''s traditional music group, Cruinniú and the set dancing collective Céim who collaborated with the students of Gaelscoil Chaladh an Treoigh to record 21 traditional Irish pieces in the new Irish World Academy Building. The title of the DVD 'Nasc' from the Irish word meaning to join or bring together was filmed over a 6 month period by students of the Computer Science and Information Systems Department at UL.

Speaking at the launch, Professor Don Barry, UL President said; "This DVD not only represents the very core of community music and expression but it illustrates the bright future for our heritage and culture. Now more than ever, our communities need the light and laughter brought by days like today and by projects such as this."

This is the first recording of music and dance using the state-of-the-art facilities at the Irish World Academy to be published. All proceeds from the DVD go to Gaelscoil Chaladgh an Treoigh. The DVD is on sale for €10. Contact noel.mccarthy@ul.ie or Gaelscoil Chaladh an Treoigh at 061 339678 or oifig@gaelcat.com for further details.

DVD de Cheol agus de Dhamhsa Traidisiúnta seolta ag Uachtarán OL

Seoladh 'Nasc' - DVD de cheol agus damhsa traidisiúnta le daoine d'fhoireann OL agus daltaí Ghaelscoil Chaladh an Treoigh

Sheol an tOllamh Don Barry, Uachtarán Ollscoil Luimnigh an DVD 'Nasc' inniu (an 18 Samhain 2010).  Tá ceol, amhráin agus damhsa traidisiúnta ar an DVD, a léirigh daoine d'fhoireann Ollscoil Luimnigh i gcomhar le 220 dalta as Gaelscoil Chaladh an Treoigh, Luimneach. Tharla an DVD mar chuid de thionscadal teagmhála idir Cruinniú, grúpa ceoil traidisiúnta OL, agus Céim, an meitheal damhsa seite, a d'oibrigh le daltaí na Gaelscoile i gCaladh an Treoigh chun 21 píosa traidisiúnta a thaifeadadh san áras nua ag Dámh Chruinne Éireann. Rinne mic léinn de chuid Roinn na Ríomheolaíochta agus na gCóras Faisnéise in OL an scannánaíocht a lean tréimhse sé mhí - is maith a oireann an teideal 'Nasc' ar an DVD agus oiread sin dreamanna éagsúla ag obair le chéile.

Ag labhairt dó ar ócáid a sheolta, dúirt Uachtarán OL, an tOllamh Don Barry; "Ní hé amháin go bhfuil an ní díreach atá i gceist le ceol pobail á léiriú leis an DVD seo ach is comhartha é chomh maith ar a fheabhas a leanfaidh oidhreacht agus cultúr na tíre san am atá romhainn. Má bhí gá riamh leis ag an bpobal, tá gá faoi láthair leis an spleodar agus leis an spraoi a bhaineann le laethanta mar seo agus le tograí den chineál seo."

Seo é an chéad fhoilseachán go dtí seo a ndearnadh an taifeadadh lena aghaidh leis na háiseanna i nDámh Chruinne Éireann atá ar fheabhas an domhain.  Is ag Gaelscoil Chaladh an Treoigh a bheidh an buntáiste ar fad as an díolachán. Tá an DVD ar díol ar €10. Tuilleadh eolais ar fáil ó noel.mccarthy@ul.ie
