Gaeilge 24

Bhí lá iontach ag ár ndaltaí ar an Máirt an 10ú Samhain. Glacaimid pairt i hGaeilge 24. An téama a bhí ann i mbliana ná “Folláine” Fuair na daltaí a gcuid tléinte agus bhí seisiún HIIT againn ar maidin. Bhí borgairí, milseáin agus cluichí eagraithe ag am lóin. Bhí siúlóid an spéisiúil againn san iarnóin. Chuamar timpeall an bhaile ag cuardach focail Gaeilge. Bhí an aimsir go deas agus bhí an chraic ag na daltaí. Bhí ionadh ar na daltaí leis an méid Gaeilge atá timpeall na háite. Tá Gaeilge ar fud na háite. Go raibh míle maith agat do Roinn na Gaeilge agus go háirithe Iníon Ní Chuimím a d’eagraigh an lá.

The students had a great day on Tuesday November 10th when we celebrated Gaeilge 24. This is a nationwide challenge to speak Irish for 24 hours. The theme this year was “Mindfulness”. The day started off with some exercise and a HITT session. There was burgers, sweets and games at lunch time. The students finished off the day with a walking tour of the town searching for Irish words. The students were amazed at the amount of Irish words that are all around us. A fantastic day was had by all. Thank you to the Irish dept and especially to Ms. Cummins for organising the day. “Beatha an teanga í a labhairt”.
