We are entering the historic year of 2016 and Glór na nGael welcomes all activities commemorating the Rising, particularly the ideals which inspired the people at that time.
Many of the leaders were members of Conradh na Gaeilge/Gaelic League and saw themselves as creating a new vibrant nation.
Here in Newcastle West there will be a commemorative tree-planting in the Demesne and we are assured that much of the signage will be bilingual. There is also a concert coming up which will showcase local talent and we are happy that the Irish language will feature strongly.
Many people have been asking if there are Irish classes or "Ciorcal Cainte" being organised this year and we would welcome any suggestions. Would you like to meet once a week/fortnight to use whatever Gaeilge you have? Contact Carmel at 086 8676273
