Monaghan pub is hosting a “Pop-Up Gaeltacht” event this evening

A Monaghan pub is hosting a “Pop-Up Gaeltacht” event this evening as part of an arts and music festival.

Monaghan Block Party is an outdoor event with art classes, graffiti art demonstrations and live music that aims to provide an alternative to the Bank Holiday weekend celebrations.

From 8.30pm, the downstairs of McKenna’s Bar on Dublin Street will promote Irish language conversation, with everyone encouraged to come along regardless of ability.

Pop-Up Gaeltacht is an open source concept that takes place around the world to get people socialising through Irish.
