Beidh an clár inniu á chraoladh ó Thigh Tábhairne Uí Chatháin i mBaile an Fheirtéaraigh, áit a mbeidh Scoil Cheoil an Earraigh ar siúl.  Scoil bhliantúil cheoil í seo, a thugann aird ar leith do cheol, d’amhráin agus do stíl Chorca Dhuibhne.  I mbliana, beidh an scoil ag ceiliúradh deich mbliana a mbunaithe, agus mar sin beidh béim ar cheol ó cheantair éagsúla i gCiarraí ar chlár na bliana seo freisin, chomh maith le ceol Chiarraí i Chicago.  Beidh Helen Ní Shé  i mbun comhrá inniu le lucht eagraithe agus le ceoltóirí faoi scoil na bliana seo.

The programme today will be broadcast live from Baile an Fheirtéaraigh where the Scoil Cheoil an Earraigh music school and festival is taking place.   This annual event celebrates the music, song and style of the Corca Dhuibhne area.  This year is the tenth year of the school, and so this year’s programme of events also include other Kerry styles, as well as focusing on Kerry music in Chicago.  Helen Ní Shé speaks to organisers and musicians about this year’s event.
