Meet Gaeilgeoirí who learnt Irish as their second language and who come from a variety of backgrounds, sharing the same love for Irish.

Spreagfaidh siad aon chainteoir uaillmhianach Gaeilge, bíodh sé idir thosaitheoirí agus iad siúd nár úsáid an teanga ó rinne siad an Ardteist. Is féidir le gach duine a labhraíonn a ‘gcúpla focal’ cur le hathbheochan labhartha na Gaeilge atá ag fás go láidir le cúpla bliain anuas.

Encouraged by Roxanna Nic Liam’s recent ‘Siúcra’ (Sugar) and Áine Gallagher’s ‘Grá agus Eagla’ (Love and Fear) we are warmed by stories of how they found their ‘grá’ for Gaeilge and subsequently how they managed to combat the ‘eagla’ of learning a new language.

Cé go bhfuil go leor roghanna ag UCD chun an Ghaeilge a fhoghlaim agus líofacht a fháil sa Ghaeilge, cuideoidh an comhrá seo leis na bacainní a choisceann orainn go minic an ‘cúpla focal’ atá againn a úsáid agus an ‘eagla’ sin a bhaineann le foghlaim na Gaeilge a shaothrú.

The event will be moderated by Eoin McEvoy (UCD Educational Technologist, artist and community activist) who will bring to life a convivial bilingual conversation with Áine Gallagher (Comedian, subject of ‘Grá & Eagla’ directed by Caitriona Ní Chadhain), Ola Majekodunmi (Black Irish Gaeilgeoir, Broadcaster & Film maker), and Fangzhe Qiu (UCD Lecturer of Celtic Civilisation).
‘Is fearr Gaeilge bhriste, ná Béarla cliste’, so be inspired to use more than cúpla focal!
