Rights & Revelry


POBAL created its annual Rights & Revelry event in 2009 to provide a fantastic entertainment event for the Irish language community and to highlight the non-fulfillment of the British government’s promise in the St Andrews Agreement to introduce an Irish Language Act.


The event, which was held for 3 years in St George’s Market, Belfast and is now held in Belfast’s Ulster Hall, draws thousands of Irish speakers and supporters from all over the country. This event has included bus tours in Irish, a film shown on Belfast City Hall’s big screen, a celebratory umbrella parade, renowned artists from Ireland and Scotland, circus, exhibitions, workshops, dance, drama, art, face painting, food and information stalls and much much more.
