All female line-up celebrate Nollaig na mBan on TG4



Date Posted: January 3, 2018

A host of top female artists from Ireland and the UK perform live in Belfast’s Empire Music Hall to celebrate Nollaig na mBan in Oíche na mBan on Saturday 6th January at 9.55pm on TG4.

Join Clíona Ní Bhuachalla and Lynette Fay for lively chat and toe tapping performances in this star studded special musical treat, which received support from Northern Ireland Screen’s Irish Language Broadcast Fund. Prepare to celebrate Women’s Christmas in style with guest performances from Heather Small (of M People fame), along with Una Healy, Sibeal, Bronagh Gallagher, Lisa McHugh, Lumiere and many more.

‘Nollaig na mBan’, is the day when the women of Ireland traditionally handed over the dosmetic chores to the men of the house after a busy Christmas and celebrate their own mini-Christmas. Historically a custom associated with Munster, this female empowering festival is gaining momentum and has now been reclaimed as a cultural movement in many Irish communities throughout Ireland.

Oíche na mBan is a TG4 production with support from Northern Ireland Screen’s Irish Language Broadcast Fund and produced by Waddell Media.


Mná amháin ar stáitse chun ceiliúradh a dhéanamh ar Nollaig na mBan ar TG4.

Beidh lear mór ban ar ceoltóirí clúiteacha iad ar fad le feiceáil beo ó Halla Ceoil an Empire i mBéal Feirste chun Nollaig na mBan a cheiliúradh Dé Sathairn 6 Eanáir ag 9.55pm ar TG4 in Oíche na mBan.

Caith seal i gcuideachta Clíona Ní Bhuachalla agus Lynette Fay le héisteacht leis an chomhrá bhríomhar agus leis an cheol spreagúil a bheidh ar an chlár a fuair maoiniú ó Chiste Craoltóireachta Gaeilge Scáileán Thuaisceart Éireann. I measc na n-aíonna a bheidh le feiceáil ar an oíche mhór cheiliúrtha seo ar Nollaig na mBan, beidh Heather Small (a bhí le M People), Úna Healy, Sibéal, Bronagh Gallagher, Lisa McHugh, Lumiere agus go leor eile nach iad.

Is lá é Nollaig na mBan a d’fhágadh mná na hÉireann obair an tí ag na fir agus dhéanadh siad ceiliúradh dá gcuid féin ar an Nollaig Bheag. Mhair an traidisiún síos trí na blianta i gCúige Mumhan, ach ar na saolta seo tá athghabháil á déanamh ar an fhéile seo a chumasaíonn na mná agus í ag teacht i dtreis arís i bpobail ar fud na hÉireann mar chuid de ghluaiseacht chultúrtha.

Is léiriú de chuid TG4 é Oíche na mBan a fuair maoiniú ó Chiste Craoltóireachta Gaeilge Scáileán Thuaisceart Éireann agus é léirithe ag Waddell Media.
