Meitheal: is the Irish name for a work party and conveys the idea of connection with neighbor in the spirit of community. In rural Ireland a group of neighbors would come together to cut the turf, save the hay and gather the harvest. They also helped each other to thatch and repair their cottages. In return food would be prepared and served followed by music, song and dancing in the kitchen.
