Seó Bóthair

Our TY students welcomed Aoife from Chonradh na Gaeilge on November 13th and participated in this year’s Seó Bóthair. The Seó Bóthair is an interactive workshop, all about promoting the Irish language. The roadshow’s Téama for 2019 is Fostaíocht agus Cúrsaí 3ú leibhéal le Gaeilge. The girls took part in games, discussions and debates with the chance of snagging some spot prizes, all the while focusing on where and how the Irish language can be used and their language rights. The roadshow encouraged the girls to engage with the Irish language in a more meaningful way, both inside and outside of school and highlighted the opportunities that Irish can provide in terms of 3rd level courses and future careers. We would like to thank Aoife for delivering this fun and informative workshop which has hopefully encouraged our students to value Pádraig Pearse’ words, when he said; “Tír gan teanga, tír gan anam”.
