Event Description

De réir an tseanchais, má chuireann tú i bhfolach craiceann maighdean mhara caithfidh sí fanacht leat go deo, ach má thig sí air arís pillfidh sí ar an fharraige i gcónaí…

Oíche ghealaí ar thrá Chonallach, tig iascaire ar mhaighdean mhara dhóighiúil ag damhsa ar na carraigeacha, agus sin tús le heachtra dhraíochtúil ina bhfuil scéalaíocht, puipéid, drámaíocht bheo, ceol agus guthanna.

Féile Ealaíne an Earagail a rinne an léiriú úr samhlaíoch dátheangach seo a choimisiúnú agus is comhfhiontar é idir Compántas Amharclainne Banyan, Cór Soiscéalach Inis Eoghain, Amharclann Óige an Ghrianáin agus Amharclann Óige Ghaoth Dobhair.

Is cinnte go gcuirfidh an scéal gleoite Conallach seo an teaghlach ar fad faoi dhraíocht.
