‘Performing, Promoting and Preserving Ireland’s Intangible Cultural Heritage’ was a lively evening of performance, exploration, and discussion on the theme of intangible cultural heritage hosted by Manchán Magan online during Heritage Week 2021. The event, held on 19 August, was co-organised by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media and the Digital Repository of Ireland.
In this excerpt from the full event video (https://vimeo.com/592064880), we witness a performance incorporating key elements of a Fingal Mummers performance, including; masking; performing the Mummers Play; playing music; and dancing. This is followed by a conversation between Manchán Magan and Seán MacPhilibín of the Fingal Mummers.
