As you know we currently have three teachers of Irish for 3 groups on Monday evenings at St. Kent’s.

We are looking to increase that number in the medium term. In particular we are looking to recruit from the Turas Teanga group taught by Tom.

Anyone from this group  interested in considering teaching Irish should contact Tom.

It may be that you do not attend classes but would be interested in teaching Irish. If so, please contact me.

Iontaobhas daonchairdis i mbun Suirbhé Mór na Gaeilge
Tá Iontaobhas an Gaelscolaíochta ( InaG), iontaobhas atá ann le tacaíocht a
thabhairt d’fhorbairt na Gaelscolaíochta, i mbun taighde ar dhearcadh an
phobail i leith na Gaeilge. Dúirt An Dr Réamaí Mathers de chuid InaG , “Mar
eagraíocht daonchairdis bíonn sinne ag obair i gcomhpháirt le pobail agus le
daoine aonair ar fud an Domhain. Is é an ról is mó atá againn ná a bheith ag
obair go dlúth le deontóirí agus daonchairde le tacaíocht a thabhairt do
phobail eagsúla an Ghaelscolaíochta a bheith acu agus chuige sin tá suas do
5 mhilliún caite againn go dtí seo.

Ní féidir praghas ar chur ar luach ár dteanga féin agus tá neart eolais
anois ag teacht chun cinn ar éifeacht déarfach na Gaeilge agus an
tumoideachais ar pháistí agus ar an phobail ar fad.

Is é an mian atá againn mar iontaobhas ná obair s’againn a leathnú ar fud na
tíre agus níos faide mar sin de, tá sé de thábhacht go bhfuil eolas domhan
againn ar dhearcadh an phobail i leith na dteanga bíodh sin maith nó olc. Tá
an Suirbhé Mór anois ar shuíomh idirlíne Iontaobhas an gaelscolaíochta

Philanthropic Trust Fund carrying out ‘The Big Irish Language Survey’
Iontaobhas na Gaelscolaíochta (InaG),

The Trust Fund for Irish-medium Education have started what they hope to be the biggest ever online survey on attitudes towards the Irish language. Dr Réamaí Mathers from InaG said “As a philanthropic and charitable trust we work closely with communities
and individuals throughout the World. Our main role at this stage is to work
in partnership with donors and philanthropic bodies to support communities,
primarily in the north of Ireland, who wish to fulfil the dream of an
education for their children through Irish.

The value of our native culture
and bilingualism is being increasingly understood in relation a range of
social, intellectual and academic benefits. The work we are involved in is
exciting; it enriches lives and indeed whole communities.
It is an ambition of our Trust to extend our work throughout Ireland and
indeed perhaps overseas, it is therefore of paramount of importance for us
to hear the opinions of people in relation to the language be they positive
or negative.
To this end we have devised a survey that will allow people to express their thoughts on a range of issues. The survey will run online from
now until the end of July 2009.

The survey can be found on our website
