Singing the Land is a way to deeply connect to the energies of nature and the interconnectedness of all life through the voice and singing. It is a way of blessing the land and bringing harmony to our lives and the world around us. The voice is a powerful tool for healing and connection – it brings us automatically into relationship with ourselves and the world around us, and accessing our natural and authentic voice can bring us into alignment with our own truth and power, catalysing positive change and healing in our lives.
Singing the Land runs voice and chanting workshops to connect with nature, with ourselves and with the sacred, as well as concerts and concert-meditations of sacred and Earth-inspired music. We also celebrate the seasonal Earth festivals and offer sacred tours of the Hill of Tara.
Everyone has a unique and beautiful voice to express and share, and connecting with it can be a source of deep personal power and healing, and a beautiful blessing for the Earth and each other. Our mission is to provide a space for people to connect with and express their unique voice and the healing and empowerment it can bring.
Singing the Land is run by singer, musician and shamanic practitioner Elaine Ní Chiardha, who has spent many years exploring voice, sound, music, spirituality, healing and connection to the Earth.
We are a Coláiste Gaeilge (Irish college) in Co Galway, Ireland. Our sole mission is to promote Gaeilge, the cornerstone of Irish identity and culture. The Coláiste is situated in Indreabhán, a Gaeltacht area, where the language has been passed down for thousands of years. Students reside in Tithe Lóistin (local families) for the duration of their three week course with an average of 11 students accommodated with each family.
The purpose of TG Lurgan is to help & support learners in acquiring Gaeilge. It is easier to learn song lyrics than almost anything else. Especially if you like the song and you can easily listen to it over and over. This is great for acquiring new word groups and phrases while improving pronunciation. We are delighted that our YouTube channel is a world-leading minority language platform.
Each one of the 200+ tracks on TG Lurgan have been produced in a voluntary capacity and were 100% funded from parent’s fees. Coláiste (TG) Lurgan does not receive any state funding whatsoever. The YouTube channel is not monetised in any way.
I am originally from Ardee in Co. Louth but I now live outside Craughwell in Co. Galway with my wife and two boys.
My interest in woodwork began in school where I was lucky enough to have a teacher whose passion for the skill inspired me to make a career from it when I left school.
After running my own cabinet making business for several years, I returned to college to become a woodwork teacher and spent seven years teaching. Following the birth of my children, I took a career break to become a stay-at-home dad while my wife worked as a musician and music teacher.
The harp’s accessible sound and therapeutic value makes it the ideal native instrument with which to introduce preschool children to music.
Researching the topic quickly made me realise very few harps were actually made in Ireland, despite the instrument being our national emblem. I started working on many templates until I manufactured a first prototype in December 2011.
I have now developed a range of fully hand-crafted harps made from locally sourced, naturally felled Irish native timber where possible. My harps are designed to suit all ages and abilities.
