        SPAILPÍN HAS GONE BLUE

We're in the middle of the high season here at present and the shop is buzzing. Lots of visitors, buíochas le Dia. Young Irish students and their parents and plenty of visitors from distant lands visititing THE WILD ATLANTIC WAY.

Our shop has just been redecorated outside and is now another colour...from the white it has been for 30 years. Now we've got the Blues, and a little bit of yellow thrown in. Everyone says it's looking great.

Aililiú. TÁ AN POC AR BUILE

A brand new design on a t-shirt we have had for a while. We decided to put the lyrics of this famous song on the back so you, (or the person behind you) can get singing.

Our great summer crew. Criú an tSamhraidh

For most of the year we are a three person team here in Spailpín HQ. It gets a bit lonely in the winter. Big change now though. We now have most of our summer staff on board.  A dedicated group of young Gaeltacht people who really shake us up in the summer. Make sure to call in if you're in the area. We've got a huge range of great products in our tiny shop.

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

A LONG SUMMERS DAY IS A GREAT FRIEND

Well the swallows have arrived back in Conamara. We've got thousands of your summer students in the area, and we're delighted that lots of them are sporting our t-shirts and hoodies. The 'Lá fada samhraidh' t-shirt has been extremely popular with young and old over the last couple of years...and it comes in 100% Organic Cotton, Soft-Style t-shirts.

GAELTACHT 2015  RANGE / Gaeltacht 2015

Last year, for the first time, we made a Gaeltacht 2014 design. We were surprised how popular it was, so we've made an even nicer one this year, and it seems to be a big hit, and not only with students. Lots went to America.

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
