ORDER DEADLINES: We will be accepting orders for Christmas delivery in Ireland up to 1.00pm Monday 22/12/14.

Scéal na hAimsire. We're really delighted that we have just printed a new design based on the weather in Ireland. I'm sure you'll agree that it's a really attractive one. 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.

We have totally redesigned our Geansaí Nollag (Christmas Sweatshirt) and it's doing very well. What's most surprising though is, that the t-shirt version is also flying out. Must be lots of you spending Christmas on the beach.

OPENING HOURS: MONDAY - SATURDAY: 10.00 - !8.00. SUNDAY: 11.00 - 18.00. We've got a huge selection of great gift items, Not all are online.

Another thing you mightn't know is that we can undertake customised orders, with your own design. Any amount, even one-offs. Give us a call if it interests you.

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.

Well the summer has really hit in now in earnest. Long may it last.

Our area here is full of young people learning Irish. They bring a lovely lively atmosphere to the place. We love to welcome them to our shop, as well as their parents, when they come to visit. Fáilte romhaibh ar fad.

As you can see above, we have brought back our lovely summery design, "A long summer's day is a sweet friend" It's available in both standard and fitted organic t-shirts. We have some more lovely designs in our shop but not online yet i'm afraid. (We're just too busy).

We're really flat out printing hoodies for the Irish colleges at present Nice designs wioth the name of the college and the year. Great souvenirs for the young people. We're also very proud that this year we have an all Irish speaking crew. All 10 of us, from Conamara, Árainn, Dublin and even Austria. All bilingual and more.

Now that we are really in holiday time, why not call in and see us in An Spidéal. We're open now 7 days a week.

Looking forward to meeting you soon.

We've got a little present for you for the Bealtaine Festival. A 'Gaeilge agus Fáilte' window sticker, plus a pen "which only writes in Irish". Order anything throughout May and you will get your free gift (worth €4) in the package.

A new seanfhocal for spring. With the way things are going for the Irish Language these days we thought this would be just the one "An té nach bhfuil láidir, ní foláir dó bheith glic' and it seems we need all our 'gliceas' or cunning, to stand up to the strength of the forces that appear to be against us at present. This strong design is available in organic earth-positive t-shirts, and sweatshirts and hoodies in various colours

As you can see above, we've also got an unusual new t-shirt design in English. Basically it's aimed at people who just don't like to hear the Irish Language spoken. We got the idea from our friend at Cowbois.com in Wales.

We've also just produced a lovely new product that I'm sure you will all love. A beautiful little babygrow for the tiniest person in the family, with the words "Be nice to my mammy, she's not sleeping too well at present'.

Another piece of news is that we are now up and running on both Facebook and Twitter. You can join us by clicking the links above.

Tá an t-earrach buailte linn, spring is upon us. Come and see us in An Spidéal. We're open now 7 days a week.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
