Is sraith de sé léamhanna filíochta í 'Fíochán Filí' atá á eagrú ag An Lab, ionad ealaíne na Gaeilge sa Daingean, Co. Chiarraí. Saghas clár malartaithe is ea í mar cheiliúradh ar thraidisiún sean-bhunaithe Gaeltachta na filíochta agus ar fhás thraidisiún nuálach cathrach na Gaeilge. Beidh na léamhanna leata amach thar 2017 ó Feabhra go Samhain. Tabharfaidh gach ceann den 6 ócáid filí Chorca Dhuibhne le chéile i dteannta filí cathracha i mBaile Átha Cliath, An Ghaillimh nó Corcaigh in aon mhórléamh amháin. Beidh trí chinn de na léamhanna sna cathracha thuasluaite agus trí chinn eile in Ionad An Lab sa Daingean agus iad scoite amach thar 2017.
'Fíochán Filí' ['Weaving Poets'] is a series of six poetry readings organized by An Lab Irish-language arts centre in An Daingean [Dingle]. The series of readings is a kind of exchange programme celebrating both the Gaeltacht-based, long-standing poetic tradition and the newer, urban-based growth of poetry in Irish. The readings will be spread out over 2017 from February to November. Each of the six readings will bring together poets from the West Kerry Gaeltacht with poets from one of the cities Dublin, Cork and Galway in one major reading. Three of the readings will take place in these cities, while the other three will be hosted in An Lab in An Daingean [Dingle].
