Gaelic origins of Hallowe’en – Talk by Tiber Falzett
October 29, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
First, the Embassy is happy to have Tiber Falzett for a talk on the Gaelic origins of Hallowe’en. Tiber is an Assistant Professor and Lecturer at UCD, where he lectures on Folklore and Ethnology.
More specifically, Tiber will delve into the kindred traditions associated with Oíche/Oidche Shamhna in Gaelic Ireland and Scotland as found in Gaelic Nova Scotia and other parts of Canada.
But also keep an ear out for a few vampire facts as next year will be a big year for our immortal friends… A live Q+A will follow.
The event will take place on the Embassy’s Youtube Channel at 4:00 PM (ET) on Friday October 29th, 2021.
We hope to see you there!
