Seachtain na Gaeilge

Seachtain na Gaeilge occurs in March every year around Lá Fhéile Pádraig – St. Patrick’s Day.  This year Seachtain na Gaeilge runs from the 1st to the 17th March.  We all make an extra special effort to speak lots of Gaeilge at this time and all efforts are recognised and rewarded within the school.  We join in Tráth na gCeist, dramaíocht, filíocht, amhránaíocht, cluichí Gaeilge mar shampla biongó, crosfhocal agus cuardach focail, céilí, ceol agus an St. Patrick’s Day Parade every year. 

Tugann an tseachtain deis dúinn go léir, ach go háirithe daoine óga dul i dtaithí ar labhairt na teanga ar chuma bródúil agus misniúil.  Ba cheart go dtabharfadh sé deis freisin do gach éinne againn seansanna nua a aimsiú chun an Ghaeilge a labhairt níos minicí.  The week gives us all the chance, especially young people, to use the Irish we have with pride.  It also provides us with new opportunities to speak Irish more often.
