Soma Gaeilge is a mini festival within a big festival in Castlewellan from 12th to 16th July 2017.
The Soma festival took place in the Mournes in County Down, and for the first time there was an Irish language mini festival. In conjunction with the Séamus Ó Néill Summer School and Glór Uachtar Tíre, there was a wide choice of events occurring.
REIC took place on Friday night, with top class poetry and music. Poets included Marcus Mac Conghail, Ciara Ní É and many more. Gregor read some of his poems in Slovenian language and enthralled the audience with his poetry. The Irish and English translations were available to aid the listeners, a real treat, as we don't often get to listen to poetry in Slovene. The night finished up with live Irish music to the early morning.
