Africa Day

Africa Day

On Sunday last (17th May), the GAA and Camogie Association gave a sports presentation in the form of the Fundamentals programme at ‘Africa Day @ Limerick’.
‘Africa Day @ Limerick’ was one of two free flagship Africa Day celebrations organised by Irish Aid in 2009 which took place in the grounds of Limerick City Hall.
The event was a great success attracting 4,300 visitors over the course of the day.
A big thank you must go to the following people for making the inclusion of Gaelic games at the event possible: Noel Hartigan (Games Development Administrator, Limerick), Pat Culhane (Hurling Development Administrator, Limerick City), Claire Kelleher (Assistant GPO, Limerick), Marguerite O’Connor (Assistant GPO, Limerick), and Deirdre Murphy (Camogie Development Coordinator, Munster).
This weekend sees the turn of Dublin. ‘Africa Day @ Dublin’ takes place this Sunday, May 24th, from 12 noon until 8pm, in the Iveagh Gardens off Clonmel Street, Dublin 2.
Admission is free and all are welcome.
As well as sport, art and music are prominent. The main stage acts for this Sunday include world-renowned Malian musician Vieux Farka Touré, with special appearances by Cathy Davey, Kíla, Liam Ó Maonlaí and Frances Black, alongside Congolese musician Niwel Tsumbu, Malawian chart-topper Kenny Gilmore, South African group Heartbreak Cartel, the Discovery Gospel Choir and Stone & Jezreel. Irish African hip hop act Millaz has recently confirmed their participation in the event, as well as Children of Soweto, a gospel group hailing from the township in South Africa.
Paddy Casey has just confirmed today that he will also be playing ‘Africa Day @ Dublin’
We look forward to seeing you all there this Sunday.
