Feachtas Gnóthaí as Gaeilge to begin in Erris this May. Bí linn.

Beatha teanga í a labhairt – a language lives by being spoken.
 

With this in mind, albeit with a modern twist, Feachtas ‘Gnóthaí as Gaeilge’ is to be launched in Erris this May.

 

Tá deis againn anois to build on the enormous success and experience of Oscail do Bhéal, nuair a d’éirigh linn tús iontach a chur le hathbheochan na Gaeilge sa cheantar.

 

Tá muid ag leanúint ar aghaidh leis an smaoineamh céanna – Oscail do Bhéal (.i. úsáid do chuid Gaeilge), ach an uair seo beidh an fócas ar chomhrá Gaeilge in eagraíochtaí éagsúla.

 

Over the coming weeks, participating businesses and organisations in Erris will be busy preparing short but fun filled voice recordings as Gaeilge. Their brief is to make a short spraíúil taifead as Gaeilge which is unique to their business and based on gnáthchomhrá Gaeilge – almost like an advertisment as Gaeilge – so that customers and muintir na háite will have a better idea of how to déan their gnóthaí as Gaeilge san eagraíocht sin.

 

The aim is to have some fun leis an gcomhrá Gaeilge, maybe pick up some Gaeilge along the way, have a chuckle at the intended jokes and even déan do ghnóthaí féin as Gaeilge the next time that you visit that place.

 

Tá an Ghaeilge beo beathach in Erris ach ba mhaith linn a léiriú níos soiléire go bhfuil fáilte mhór roimh an nGaeilge sa cheantar, an dea-scéal a scaipeadh that there are plenty of chances to oscail do bhéal and also chun aitheantas and well deserved publicity a fháil for participating businesses and organisations on local and social media.

 

If you or your organisation would like to get involved, please get in touch with us, cuirfear fáilte is fiche romhat.

 

New recordings will be uploaded to Ionad Deirbhile’s Facebook page each week. So keep an eye out on our page for regular updates. The top 5 recordings as Gaeilge which get the most ‘likes and shares’ on Facebook will be played on the Tommy Marren radio show. So go on, give Gaeilge a go. Má labhraíonn muid an Ghaeilge, mairfidh sí.

 

For more information on this campaign, our upcoming comhrá classes, our lón Gaeilge uair sa mhí, keep an eye on our Facebook page at Ionad Deirbhile or our webpage ionaddeirbhile.ie.
