Féile na Bealtaine stokes the fire beneath a cauldron of culture, community and creativity. Bíonn loinnir óna gríosach i gcaitheamh na bliana ar fad. Féile aims to hold on to, and nourish, the fiery animus that has made Féile magical. Cleachtais chruthaitheacha áitiúla a spreagadh, agus ansan iad a chothú ar bhonn leanúnach – tallann nua a ghríosadh tré chuireadh a thabhairt di bheith páirteach; plé a dhéanamh ó thaobh an ruda atá féideartha (aon rud!) There’s more Bealtaine in F Na B than ever before this year, with the pagans stepping up their antics and invading the whole programme. Our new bursary scheme to encourage deeper participation in street theatre has been very successful and hopefully something we can sustain and broaden. Its not often these days we allow every day life to pause. Tapaidh an deis tú féin a thumadh go hiomlán, a bheith fiain, rud urnua ar fad a aimsiú, craic agus súp a bhaint as an saol

Camille O’Sullivan Costas: €25 Support act, Cat Dowling ‘One of the most wonderful voices in Irish contemporary music…’ - Irish Times
www.feilenabealtaine.ie Lig duit féin a bheith tarraingthe isteach i ndomhan dorchadais, solais, sorcais agus taibhreamh fad is atá Camille O'Sullivan ag canadh a leaganacha fíordhramatúla d'amhráin Brel, Cave, Radiohead, Bowie agus a thuilleadh eile nach iad. Camille is inspired by these dramatic narrative songs: dark & light: bittersweet stories, that hold a mirror upto the stranger side of society. These songs question what is around them and what exists in them, in a way what theatre does; the crack within oneself, comfort of black humor, melancholy, darkness versus innocence, exposing and celebrating your madness and vulnerability. Dorcha, gnéasach, fíochmhar, greannmhar agus draíochtúil, claochlaíonn Camille gach amhrán a chanann sí ina eispéireas dian, dramatúil tochtmhar, ag tarraingt a lucht éisteachta isteach i ndomhan soilsithe ag dorchadas agus solas araon. Bí ag súil le gliondar agus paisean íonghlan. Fierce, amusing and mesmerizing, Camille transforms each song she performs into a grippingly theatrical experience 3

Tools To Open Our Eyes: The Geology and Poetry of Ted Hughes & Seamus Heaney
Áit: Emlagh House Cathain: Domhnach / Sunday 3pm Costas: €5
The renowned physicist Carlo Rovelli said ͚Our culture is foolish to keep science and poetry separated͛, but how can science and poetry work together? In this event, geologist Prof Mike Stephenson of the British Geological Survey and poet Prof Iggy McGovern will give a series of readings showing how the poetry of two poets of the land, Ted Hughes and Seamus Heaney, reveals geological time and process in vibrant language that bypasses scientific terminology. The talk will show how both poets had an intuitive grasp of geology, and the slow turning of cycles that forms rocks, preserves fossils and creates the hard bones of our landscape. The speakers will consider what poetic expression teaches scientists about how to communicate, but also what extra insights geologists might gain from reading poetry about their science.This event is a collaboration between the Irish Centre for Research in Applied Geosciences (iCRAG) and Féile Na Bealtaine. It will offer a unique insight into stories of landscapes, science and poetry.Following the talk geologists from iCrag will take participants on a short coastal walk to look at the geology and topography of Dingle.

Emer McLysaght and Sarah Breen created the Facebook page Oh My God, What A Complete Aisling which led to them writing the novel of the same name. They originally conceived of the Aisling character when they shared a flat together in Stoneybatter. Observing certain traits, characteristics and quirks of a very particular type of Irish girl they recognised and identified with, they set up the Facebook page to gather their comical observations and it has since become a phenomenon, taking on a life its own. Like Aisling, both are ‘from down the country’.

The Fighting Words programme was developed by Roddy Doyle and Sean Love in 2009 inDublin, to support creative writing among children and young adults.

The process involves a lot of laughs and draws out the marvelous ideas the students have, with Writing Tutors supporting their individual development of the story ideas.

Wandering Star Theatre Company present a special preview of Lex Talionis (A Tale of Vengeance & Feathers), a new play by Liam Heylin. Hugh is an older rook with chicks on the way. Mooney is a younger rook whose new friend Max is not what she seems. Dónie is a magpie, and he is bad news. When someone is murdered all hell breaks loose. There will be vengeance. That's what the weird Latin title is about – the law of retaliation, an eye for an eye. This is another play from the seriously funny Liam Heylin about savage craic on the streets of Cork City. A bird͛s eye view, if you will. Directed by Katrina Foley Starring Aisling McCarthy, Sinéad Donnelly, Sinéad McGee and Bláithín MacGabhann This play contains strong language and some mild violence.
The Tricky Part A One Man Show Written and Performed by Martin Moran A true story of sexuality, spirituality and the mystery of human experience, The OBIE award winning The Tricky Part is one of the most heralded one-man plays in recent memory. Féile na Bealtaine is delighted to welcome Martin Moran to Dingle Between the ages of 12 and 15, Moran had a sexual relationship with an older man. Many years later, Moran found and confronted his abuser. Now as an adult and an established New York actor, he has transformed his story into a riveting, often funny and always surprising journey through the complexities of Catholicism, desire and human trespass. The New York premiere received a 2004 Obie award and two Drama Desk nominations including Outstanding Play.

Costas: €10 Friday May 4th (Bernard Casey, Brian Gallagher + guests) Bernard Casey is one of Ireland's fastest rising stars. After his smashing debut performance at the Electric Picnic, Bernard took the internet by storm with his viral videos the Polish/Irish Accent, the French Oral and the Irish Listening Test. With over 25,000 subscribers, the young, energetic, crafty Kerryman is fast becoming a regular at festivals throughout Ireland and the UK.
Brian Gallagher Unique, clever, surreal and irreverent, Brian has been taking the Irish standup circuit by storm in recent times. He was runner-up in 'Show Me The Funny' 2017, and is a contributor to the hugely successful YouTube channel 'Facts'. Gallagher has performed everywhere from Forbidden Fruit and the Edinburgh Fringe to your ma’s kitchen.
Saturday May 5th (Danny Ryan, Stephen Ryan + guests)
Stephen Ryan has been described as 'arrogant yet serene,' his unorthodox perspective in putting the world to rights, delivered with a smug charm, makes him a consistent audience favourite. He is a Forbidden Fruit Comedy Competition winner. 'Mesmerising aura' - Chortle
Limerick comic Danny Ryan is a winner of the national 'Show Me The Funny' competition, and is popular with audiences across the country for his hilarious blend of sharp one-liners and offbeat storytelling. His subtle mix of the surreal with the mundane has made him one of the best emerging comedians on the circuit.
Glam Slam! Bam! Pow! Biff! Shazam! The Nualas are Ireland’s favourite all-lady, shiny-dressed, musical comedy trio. Since their first outing two decades ago, their unique brand of intricately-arranged, self-penned song and provocative chat about current stuff has wowed audiences across the globe. They’ve played extended seasons in New York, London and Melbourne, multiple sell out run at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and regularly tour all the major theatres in Ireland. They’ve chalked up innumerable radio and TV appearances along the way, from BBC 1 TV's Stand-Up Show, to RTE's Late, Late Show, to writing and recording several radio series for BBC Radio 4, to, most recently,recording a half-hour special for RTE Radio One's Comedy Showcase series. Now they're back in the ring for a glittering bout of knockout, body-slamming comedy gold. They dance like a butterfly and sing like a bee. They'll have you flat out on the mat with laughter. They will literally punch you right in the kisser with their gloves of gags and gaiety.
