The Home Of An Taibhdhearc To Return


The home of An Taibhdhearc, Ireland’s Irish Language National Theatre, is to return.

‘THE ALL-IRISH Taibhdhearc theatre in Galway city, which was severely damaged by fire four years ago, is set to reopen next year after securing Government funding for its refurbishment.

It has been closed since the blaze in 2007, but a commitment from both the Galway City Council and the Government – each have promised €300,000 for the work – should see the curtains go up in the iconic theatre once again.’

Some good news at last for An Taibhdhearc and Irish theatre in general after many previous disappointments.
