The Liverpool Irish Festival office will be closed from 16 Dec 2022-16 Jan 2023.

In the meantime, we hope you will enjoy looking back over the year’s events, using our ‘what’s been’ back-catalogue. You should also be aare of our creative call outs.

Messages and ideas for children

Two Irish decoration sheets are available here: Baubles/Trees. Cut out the shapes and stick them in to Christmas cards or thread with string to add to a tree.

You can also click this link for free online resources. To print off and cut out label templates you could use in the middle of your Christmas cards (English only), click here to download Belvedere Design Templates (a free online resource).

If you would like to use some Gaeilge in your messages this year, we have compiled a short English/Gaeilge list of lines….

  • Happy Yuletide to you and yours/Yuletide sona duit féin agus leatsa
  • A little note to say ‘your community thinks of you’/Nóta beag le rá ‘smaoiníonn do phobal ort’
  • Wishing you a peaceful Christmas/Ar mian leat Nollaig shíochánta
  • Even dark years have bright stars. We hope this brings you a little light/Tá réaltaí geala ag fiú blianta dorcha. Tá súil againn go dtabharfaidh sé seo solas beag duit
  • Wishing you a warm and restful Christmas/Ar mian leat Nollaig te agus suaimhneach duit
  • Happy holidays!/Laethanta saoire sona duit!
  • Cheers to you. We hope you have a merry time/Cheers duit. Tá súil againn go mbeidh am sona agat.
