A mighty weekend for the language


Cad é mar atá sibh an tseachtain seo, a chairde? How are you all this week, folks? Bhí an chéad oíche de shioc againn ansin. We had our first real frosty night there. It only takes the wan frosty night for ‘lucht na tubaiste’ the merchants of doom to come out and declare that this winter is going to be, an geimhreadh is fuaire le cuimhne na ndaoine, the coulest in living memory.

Beidh Oireachtas na Gaeilge ag filleadh ar Leitir Ceanainn i bliana, ón Mháirt 30 Deireadh Fómhair go dtí an Domhnach 4 Samhain agus tá neart imeachtaí suimiúla, siamsúla agus spraíúla beartaithe don tseachtain agus formhór acu lonnaithe in Óstán Mount Errigal.

Meon Eile, Clár Ráidió agus Turas Rothaíochta


‘Cad é mar atá sibh an tseachtain seo, a chairde?’ How’s things with you this week, folks? ‘Nach galánta an lá a bhí ann Dé Domhnaigh?’ Wasn’t Sunday a lovely day? ‘Agus ní raibh caill ar an Luan ach an oiread’ and Monday wasn’t bad either. We were waiting for days like that all summer, but they were few and far between.


Seoladh Leabhar agus Seisiún Ceoil


‘Cad é mar atá sibh an tseachtain seo, a chairde?’ How are you this week, folks? ‘Tá an aimsir ag titim chun fuachta’ the weather is heading in a colder direction, ‘agus tá na laethanta ag éirí níos gairide’ and the days are getting shorter,
