Seachtain na Gaeilge

1st-17th March 2021

What is Seachtain na Gaeilge? Seachtain na Gaeilge is an organisation in Ireland which promotes the Irish language during a two-week (1st of March to the 17th) festival held at the beginning of March every year in the lead up to Saint Patrick's Day. During this time we celebrate the use of Irish language in our school.

If you would like to get involved and try out your Irish skills then 10@10 is on the RTE player, select the Irish version to do it as Gaeilge for Seachtain na Gaeilge or follow the link below.

5th Class having been given a task ''Frása an Lae''. They are doing different phrases each day, they have to place the phrase around the house for the whole family to use.
One of our 5th class boys reciting Hey Diddle Diddle as Gaeilge along with the beautiful illustration he did that won their class competition.

You can join in the fun and practice your Irish at home too. Gaeilge sa bhaile le Gaelbhratach.
Our Junior Infant classes did some wonderful Irish Dancing for SNG.

Fifth Class took part in a Tóraíocht Taisce (Scavenger Hunt) during Seachtain na Gaeilge. The aim was to take a photograph of everything they saw that had Irish written on it in the community.
The winner of the competition took 142 photographs!
Here is a video of her photos showing all the Irish that surrounds us in our locality.
