An Taibhdhearc seeking board members An Taibhdhearc seeking board members

A callout is being made for “dedicated, enthusiastic, and creative people who share a passion for Irish language theatre development”, as an Taibhdhearc seeks to expand its voluntary board of directors.

The national Irish language theatre, which will celebrate its centenary in 2028, has been an important institution for Irish speakers at home and abroad for almost 100 years. It has created and supported the production of plays, musicals, concerts and other artforms. Many of the actors who trod its boards went on to become household names, most notably the late Mick Lally.

New board members are now required. These people, who can be from Ireland or abroad, must be able to conduct all board business through the Irish language. And they’ll need some experience in the arts sector.

In particular, a treasurer is being sought, so people with skills in accountancy and/or financial planning are especially welcome to apply. Those with marketing and communications skills, or experience of business development and law, or who have a combination of these skills are also needed.

However, all interested people are encouraged to apply, as diverse skills and experience will be of benefit.

The board term lasts for four years, with six meetings scheduled per annum.

Anyone interested should submit a CV and one-page cover letter, outlining their experience and skills, and their reasons for wanting to join An Taibhdhearc’s board.

Applications from all sections of the community are welcome and should be emailed to by close of business on Thursday, February 29.  More information, including on the membership of the current board, can be got at
