3) Féile na dTeaghlach

Féile na dTeaghlach (25 Lúnasa 2018)

Is é ceann de na hócáidí is suntasaí agus is áille a bhaineann le gach Cruinniú Domhanda na dTeaglach ná Féile na dTeaghlach. Is ócáid an-speisialta í i bhfoirm ceolchoirme, a bhfuil ceiliúradh na dteaghlach ar fud an domhain agus a gcreideamh mar chroílár aici. Is eispéireas croíúil, corraitheach, pearsanta agus dochreidte a bheas ann – ócáid an-speisalta le bheith i láthair aici go pearsanta nó le hamharc uirthi timpeall an domhain.

Doirse ar oscailt ar 15:00
Tús le Féile na dTeaghlach ar 18:30

Cuirfidh WMOF2018 fáilte roimh an Phápa Proinsias tráthnóna Dé Sathairn, 25 Lúnasa agus roimh 70,000 duine le bheith lúcháireach ag ceiliúradh Fhéile na dTeaghlach i Stáid Pháirc an Chrócaigh. Tá cóiréagrafaíocht déanta ar an fhéile dhá uair an chloig seo mar cheiliúradh ar shaol na dteaghlach agus beidh sé ar cheann de na buaicphointí ag WMOF2018, le ceol, amhráin, damhsa agus an focal labhartha.

Labhróidh an Pápa Proinsias le gach duine i láthair agus beidh cúig theistiméireacht tugtha ag teaghlaigh as Éirinn, Ceanada, an India, an Iaráic agus an Afraic. Cuirfidh siad in iúl faoin dóigh ar chothaigh agus ar neartaigh a dteaghlaigh iad le dóchas agus le grá sna tréimhsí is dúshlánaí agus is tábhachtaí sa tsaol acu. Beidh béim á cur sna teistiméireachtaí acu ar mhaithiúnas, neart agus dóchas i saol an teaghlaigh; staid idirghlúine theaghlaigh na linne seo; agus tionchar na teicneolaíochta ar shaol an teaghlaigh.

Is scáthán iad na téamaí roghnaithe ar chuid mhór de na tosaíochtaí i ministreacht an Phápa Proinsias, ar a n-áirítear dídeanacht agus iad siúd ar an imeall; imircigh agus teifigh; cúram dár mbaile comhchoiteann; agus tábhacht an teaghlaigh, na síochána agus an ghrá ar fud an domhain. Beidh “ciorcal dála” mar chuid de dhearadh an stáitse don ócáid, áit a mbeidh teaghlaigh ina suí leis an Phápa Proinsias le hamharc ar chuid de na taispeántais ar an stáitse.

Beidh grúpa spleodrach ina bhfuil na mílte den lucht tallainne cruthaitheach agus léiritheach ar an stáitse i bhFéile na dTeaghlach. Beidh slua d’amhránaithe, lucht léirithe, cóir, ceoltóirí agus damhsóirí Éireannacha agus idirnáisiúnta, mar aon leis na céadta d’oibrithe deonacha go léir le chéile agus iad ag cruthú ócáid ar leith.

Beidh lucht siamsa pobalbhunaithe mar aon leroinnt daoine in Éirinn agus go hidirnáisiúnta a bhfuil cáil orthu páirteach sa chlár mar aon le ceolfhoireann le breis agus 50 ceoltóir; os cionn 700 damhsóir Gaelach, sean-nóis agus comhaimseartha, ar a n-áirítear 500 as scoileanna damhsa Gaelach ar fud na tíre; cór le 1,000 ball; 100 grúpa pobail agus 300 iompróir brataí. Beidh an compántas damhsa Riverdance, Nathan Carter, Dana Masters, Daniel O’Donnell, Celine Byrne, Muintir Uí Bheaglaoich, Cór Bodhar an Teaghlaigh Naofa & Deaftones, Patrick Bergin, The Priests, Paddy Maloney, Bridgie agus Missy Collins agus Moya Brennan páirteach fosta.

Fógrófar níos mó rudaí don cheolchoirm níos goire don ócáid agus beidh cúpla aoí gan choinne ar an oíche féin!

Beidh an fhéile ar siúl i bPáirc an Chrócaigh, príomhstáid agus ceanncheathrú na heagraíochta spóirt agus cultúir is mó in Éirinn, Cumann Lúthchleas Gael (CLG). Is é ceann de na staideanna is mó san Eoraip, lonnaithe i gcroílár Chathair Bhaile Átha Cliath, ar siúlóid 20 bomaite é ó lár na cathrach.
