Kells Courthouse was built in 1801, during a time of great resistance and the beginning of our emancipation from English law ruling over Ireland. These harsh laws known as the Penal laws, were introduced in the 15th century, and were designed to destroy indigenous Gaelic culture, spirituality, language and ways of life, indigenous methods of cultural preservation, where songs, poems and stories were passed from person to person - linking artists, communities and cultures together. Each artist will respond to Damien Dempsey’s ‘Colony’, a song about colonisation in Ireland and abroad - bringing poetry, dance and storytelling. Damien Dempsey will also be performing his song ‘Colony’ on the night
