Amharclann Ghaoth Dobhair is the only Irish language theatre in the country that is situated in the heart of the Gaeltacht. Gweedore is a deep well for the Irish language, and this depth and wealth of language contributes to the fact that the local population are particularly talented and creative.
The Amharclann, a charitable organisation run mainly by volunteers, provides an exemplary artistic hub where this unique community can express their creative life as well as nurturing and preserving the Irish language, culture and arts.
So why are we looking for your help?
Like all sectors of the community Covid 19 has caused difficulties in many aspects of our lives and the Amharclann is no exception. Since March the theatre doors have been closed and the majority of our sustainable income comes from ticket sales. But even with the doors closed we have tried to reach out to our community, you and those like you who have an interest in the Irish language, culture and arts, by making the transition to social media. But to record performances requires funding and the usual bills, ie. electricity, insurance, upkeep and maintainance are still to be paid.
In a nutshell , we need your help to be able to continue.
Any help would greatly be appreciated.
