Pangur Bán

Pangur Bán is a literary and cultural society founded in the May 2014. They aim to provide educational insights into working class life through educational talks and book clubs with each set book giving an overall insight into different aspects of history and social classes. It’s a committee run organisation that has ran various successful projects over the years and perhaps the most notable being the 1916 Centenary Project. This included educational talks, song and story nights, residentials to Dublin and concluded with a play which successfully sold out two nights at the Waterfront Hall.  Over the past year Pangur Bán have launched the Market Social History Project which includes the main section: An Oral History Archive.
