My friends, In late June last year more than 100 of you turned out to walk the Cadgers’ Pad and help make the video “The Mountains of Cooley” (search on Youtube). We all had such good fun that we want to do it again. This year’s walk will be bilingual, organised in co-operation between our local Ciorcal Comhrá (conversation group) and Omeath District Development with help from Conradh na Gaelige. There will be a number of language-related events on Saturday 25th June: walking the mountains in the morning, a tour of old Gaeltacht houses and music and language workshops later on. Details to come soon but for now please mark this in your diary.
Our Ciorcal Comhrá meets in the Granvue Hotel Omeath every Wednesday evening at 8:30 for an hour or two of Irish or at least bilingual conversation. Please drop in and bring your cúpla focal, or just come for the crack and listen.
