An Ceangal Mara

Has been in existence since 1996 and functions as a living entity, fostering an understanding of the importance of each individual while encouraging community, including offering of individual talents toward greater goals together. We research, teach and learn about the animals and clothing of our past. We investigate into how our food was grown and stored, about stylistically Celtic music and singing, studying and living the culture, exploring the art, sacred sites, the history and mythology. The Celtic languages are researched and studied as are instances of second sight, various forms of Celtic style dance and astronomy. We create and participate in community gatherings, from intimate dinners to blazing fire festivals, fairs and games of old. From solitary to interactive, we enjoy visual, experiential and unexpected learning experiences from sources such as authoritative people and old manuscripts, to modern technology.

It is through membership that we continue this tradition of community operated Celtic cultural arts & education programming, and ensure the success and quality of this programming for community enrichment.

If this sounds interesting, there are several categories of possible involvement with An Ceangal Mara:

Volunteers receive free or reduced admission to events that they are working on or at. Volunteers of course must keep their commitments, showing up to work parties and events as they have committed themselves or contact the volunteer coordinator well in advance of any variance. Emergencies are of course understandable. One can volunteer within their field of expertise or in a way in which they hope to learn and experience more.
