Níl aon todhchaí ag Ghaeilge


A Chara,


Maidir leis an straitéis 20 bliain don Ghaeilge

maidir as for, as regards; like, as well as
straitéis strategy

Níl aon todhchaí ag an Ghaeilge. Tá mean Gaeilge breac le Béarla agus béarlachas.

Ní focail Ghaeilge iad. Is béarla truaillithí atá ann. Tá na sobal drámaí ar TG4 breac béarla. Náire oraibh go léir.

truailligh corrupt, contaminate, defile
sobal foam, froth, lather
breac speckled
go léir wholly, entirely; all

Cad mar gheall ar “Dhlí Tourbon 1994” sa Fhrainc :

mar gheall ar … on the account of …

Nuair a bhfuil ábhar Béarla ar fhógra no ar comhartha ta sé riachtanach leagan Fraincise a bheith mar bun
nótaí. An Bhfuil sé in am dlí mar seo a bheith in Éireann chun an teanga a caomhnú?

comhartha sign, mark, signal, notic

Litir as Moscó

A chara,

Is eachtrannach mé atá ag coinneáil súil ghéar
ar chúrsaí Gaeilge in

Éirinn ós rud é gur léachtóir le Gaeilge mé in
ollscoil anseo i Moscó.

Tá mé tar éis alt le Peter Cosgrove a léamh ar
gaelport.com as an Irish Independent. Ba bhreá
liom ceist a chur ar bhur léitheoirí ar daoine atá
dílis don teanga iad, ar ndóigh: cén fhad a
bheifear ag ligean do dhaoine a bheith chomh
maslach sin agus a leithéid d’alt a fhoilsiú ina
scríobhtar nach bhfuil ach 40 duine ag éisteacht
le RnaG.

Cén fáth a bhfuil Údarás na Gaeltachta ag cur
suas lena leithéid de ráiteas nach bhfuil de

a fháil ón stát le caitheamh ar dheontais sa
nGaeltacht ar chostas na ndaoine eile?

Is cothú ceart é don nós atá fairsing in Éirinn
an Ghaeilge agus a pobal a mhaslú. Ach mura
bhfuiltear ag iarraidh an fód a sheasamh don
teanga, cén fáth a mbeadh iontas orm nach
féidir le feachtas Chonchubhair Úi Liatháin ar
son Gaelscéal ar an idirlíon míle duine a bhailiú
le n-é a shíniú.

Cré na Cille — Bás Sheáinín Liam

From Will’s Synopsis:

Seáinín Liam dropped dead of a bad heart, and that’s all he wants to talk about. Caitríona wants a report of her funeral, but she has to drag it out of him, because he keeps wandering off on the topic of his heart.

She learns that the offering wasn’t as great as she expected, that the priest wasn’t there. Seánín reports that there was plenty of booze, and that 8 candles were lit (more than anyone else), but that one blew out, a bad sign.

He reveals that son Pádraig intended to put Caitríona in the Pound Plot, but Neil intervened. He also reports what Neil said about Caitríona not being clean, and that Cáit Bheag and Bid Shorcha refused to lay her out or keen for her. But the cross is still promised.

She is delighted to hear news that her daughter-in-law is sickly, Caitríona is hoping that this next pregnancy will bump her off. But she also learns that her granddaughter Máirín has been taken in by the nuns to turn into a schoolteacher.

Seáinín bumps into the Master, who wants to know about his wife. Seáinín says that Bileachaí would bring the mail to the schoolchildren, and then spend a lot of time talking to An Mháistreás in the hall, and “that’s not the half of it.”
