St Patricks Day celebrations for 2015

Seachtain na Gaeilge
 
For many years the week around St Patrick’s Day was called Seachtain na Gaeilge.   In recent years communities have spread the use of our National language through the whole month of March and now the official week has even become a fortnight.   Here in the Déise where the use of Irish is increasingly used outside the Gaeltacht there are many events celebrating our cultural identity.  With the backing of Foras na Gaeilge many local businesses are participating in a gifts project “bronntanas na Gaeilge” encouraging the giving of gifts such as books and games with an Irish emphasis.   On Sunday March 15th our branch will join with other Comhaltas branches from around the county at the Park Hotel, Dungarvan from 3pm to 5.30pm for an afternoon of entertainment and seanchas. We hope that families will make a special effort to attend, to encourage the younger ones and to meet with other parents and members from other branches. The day’s events will not just be confined to juniors as adults will also have an opportunity to dance, give a song or play a few tunes.   Beidh fáilte roimh cách.  Some of our members attend the weekly ciorcal comhrá each Tuesday at 7pm in the Park Hotel and this week a new ciorcal will commence in Dungarvan Library at 6.30pm on Thursdays.  Next week we will be looking forward to our activities on St Patrick’s Day.  Go dtí sin bain usáid as an cúpla focal.
