Poetry Ireland Introductions Sampler

Tá bród orm a rá go bhfuil dánta liom sa leabhrán seo.

Poetry Ireland Introductions is a collection of poetry from the very best of Ireland’s emerging poets for 2017, as chosen by Poetry Ireland, the national poetry organisation. Along with a pair of superb poems, each poet provides an intriguing piece on what provoked them into writing poetry in the first place.

Featuring Niall Bourke, Colette Bryce, Conor Cleary, Susannah Dickey, Darren Donohue, Jackie Gorman, Majella Kelly, Ciara Ní É, Paul Ó Colmáin, James O’Leary, Matthew Rice, Breda Spaight, Christian Wethered, and Grace Wilentz.

Media ar líne (open doc)

To get my students to interact with Gaeilge IN THE WILD I got them to do a presentation on a piece of media. I told them to pick anything that interested them – a video, website, article, news report, song, etc.

I thought some of you might be interested in the list of sample sources that I put together for them, so I made this open doc. It’s by no means exhaustive, please add to it if you want!

An Púca

Tá an téarma nach mór críochnaithe anseo in Villanova, agus ní fada go mbeidh mé ag tabhairt aghaidh ar Éirinn arís. 

Seo “An Púca” á léamh ag roinnt mac léinn de mo chuid.

Mhúin mé an dán ar Oíche Shamhna, agus bhí an rang an-tógtha leis, agus leis an mbéaloideas faoin bPúca freisin! Mar sin, rinneamar an dán a thaifead le chéile sa rang deireanach arú inné roimh slán a rá lena chéile.

(Béarla: This is my class at Villanova University, where I was teaching as a Fulbright FLTA for the past year. We covered this poem at Halloween. The students liked it, and the folklore about the Púca, so we recorded it during our last class.)

D’fhoghlaim mé an dán seo i rang a dó agus d’fhan sé liom i gcónaí. Bhí mé an-sásta, mar sin, téacs an dáin a aimsiú ar shuíomh Comhaltas.ie:

AN PÚCA
“Púca! Púca! Is mise an púca!
Púca! Púca! Aon-dó-trí!
Seo í an oíche, Oíche Shamhna
A théim ar cuairt chun do thí,
Chun do thí!”

“Púca! Púca! Ní tusa an púca!
Tusa Seáinín Beag Ó Laoi!
Seo í an oíche, Oíche Shamhna
A bhíonn tú ag súgradh aon, dó, trí,
Aon, dó, trí.”

“Púca! Púca! Is mise an púca!
Ní mise in aon chor Seán Ó Laoi!
Féach ar m’fhiacla! Féach im ’shúile
Béarfaidh mé anocht ort, anocht a chroí,
Béarfaidh mé anocht ort, anocht a chroí,
Anocht a chroí!”

WTF!? Canúint na Mumhan 3/5

Here’s part 3/5, where Seaghan and I mention some specific words, and pronunciations of words, that are particular to Munster Irish.

It’s only a 2 minute video, so of course this is just an introduction!

Here’s the list:

Words to note:
srón = caincín (nose)
gluaisteán = cairt (car)
cáca = císte (cake)
canathaobh is used instead of cén fáth (why)

Pronunciations to note:
go hiontach pronounced go húntach (wonderful)
anseo = anso (here)
ansin = ansan (ther)
seo = so (but not after words ending in slender letter)
sin = san (but not after words ending in slender letter)
an mhí seo = this month (slender ending of “mí” means that “seo” is also slender)
an lá so = this day (broad ending of “lá”, “so” is also broad)

When I was on YouTube I saw that I have reached 1,000 subscribers. Go raibh MÍLE maith agaibh!

Táim an-sásta go bhfuil spéis ag an oiread sin daoine sa Ghaeilge, agus san ábhar atá á chruthú agam.

Comhar na míosa seo

Táim an-sásta gur foilsíodh dánta liom in Comhar na míosa seo.

“Glúin úr” is téama den eagrán (mar is féidir don léitheoir cáiréiseach a fheiceáil ar an gclúdach, thíos!) Mar sin cuireadh roinnt scríbhneoirí i gcló nach raibh saothar acu san iris cheana.

Ní hamháin sin – féach ar chlúdach na hirise:

Is léaráid é sin bunaithe ar “Ag an Dochtúir”, dan liomsa! Is féidir an dán sin a léamh anseo, agus san iris chlóite dar ndóigh!

(Tá roinnt eile ar fáil ar líne freisin, molaim an gearrscéal le hEoin P. Ó Murchú!)

 

#NílSéCGL sna Meáin

Hello a chairde!

Bhuel, coicís ó shin, go hiomlán de thaisme, thosaigh mé feachtas dar teideal #NílSéCGL.

Bhuel go raibh míle maith agaibh as na freagraí ar fad!

Is iontach an clúdach a fuair sé sna meáin, idir Ghaeilge agus Bhéarla.

Anois chun é a chruinniú in aon áit amháin, seo roinnt nasc:
