Lá an Dreoilín: The Wran

Lá an Dreoilín le Paul Ó Colmáin (Geantraí, Goltraí…)

“The wran, the wran, the king of all birds,
on Stephen’s Day was caught in the furze”
Dec 26th 2019, working with Joe O’Leary of Levis’ Corner House, artist Sonia Caldwell, basket weaver Martin Flynn and other friends, we resurrected an ancient tradition in Ballydehob by reviving na cleamairí: Lucht an Dreoilín, the Wran Boys of Ballydehob! The weather cooperated enough to allow us patrol the village, honour the mighty Danno and visit every public house!
Míle buíochas do’n bhean a thóg na pictiúirí seo ar mo mhóibiail.
