Most CDs now €15 and 1916 T-shirts

Your feedback. We got a lot of feedback over the last while about the service we provide and we are gradually working through it. The first thing we looked into was our CD range, and we are happy to inform you that we are now able to offer you most of our CDs at €15 or less, a bargain!

Our 1916-2016 Range.

We intend over the next year to offer a new range of designs to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the 1916 Rising. Our first design is "An Claidheamh Soluis" (The Sword of Light), which was an Irish language newspaper at the time of the Rising. Do you have any ideas?

SHOP OPENING HOURS: Open 7 days a week from now until the end of the Summer.

Bliain Nua Mhaith / Happy New Year to all our friends.

To start off 2015 we'd love to hear your feedback about us and the service we provide. What we're doing right, and what we're doing wrong and what you think we should be doing. Have you found another company that does things better? Please tell This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Do you have any really good ideas for a t-shirt design 'As Gaeilge'? Who knows, we might run with it, and if we do, you will be first to get one, hot off the press.

Scéal na hAimsire. Our new Weather in Ireland t-shirt is a great hit. It's a real conversation piece. It's made up of a very comprehensive list of traditional terms commonly heard on the Raidio na Gaeltachta news. Our good friend and broadcaster at RnaG, Marion Ní Shúilleabháin, supplied us with all this very rich terminology.

SHOP OPENING HOURS: Very irregular during January. So best to call before arriving, or better still, place your order online

A lot happening here at Spailpín HQ, as we get ready for the Christmas season. We want to make sure we have the best selection of 'Earraí Gaelacha' available to you as presents.

As you will see from above, Colm Mac Séalaigh of Na Fíréin fame, has just released a solo album of 18 newly composed songs, under the name 'Aon Scéal?' (Any News?). Styles and themes are varied. He is joined by other Fíréin members on some of the songs. It's well worth having in your collection. An Spailpín Fánach is delighted to be associated with it. It's available from this site, and you can also listen to some sample songs and lyrics can be downloaded from here also.

We're currently developing our online shop. As well as increasing our range of CD titles, we now have a new greeting card section. Lots of cards for various occasions, and we'll be adding to them all the time

It's really lovely here now in Conamara, with the arrival of Autumn. And we still have some visitors around, enjoying the light and quiet time.

The Ceardlann here, where we are based, is looking it's best. This beautiful complex of craft workshops, is celebrating 30 years since it's establishment. Together with the 10 craftshops, we've also got an award-winning café, An Builín Blasta. It's really worth a visit.see our website at www.ceardlann.com

We came up with a lot of new designs this summer, some of which are now online, and, as you can see from above, we also have a new Seanfhocal, or Irish proverb, "Galar gan náire an tart' (There's no shame in having a good thirst), and yes, we are talking about thirst not drunkenness. It's available on 100% Organic Cotton t-shirts as well as high quality sweatshirts and hoodies.
