[05/05/09] Seachtain na Gaeilge 21 - 28 Meitheamh 2009) / Irish Language Week (21 - 28 June 2009)
Beidh an chéad campa i mbliana á rith trí Ghaeilge againn! Is deis í seo daoibhse a bhfuil an teanga agaibh, seachtain a chaitheamh ag obair sa pháirc náisiúnta le Groundwork agus bhur gcuid Ghaeilge a úsáid. Ní gá go mbeadh Gaeilge líofa agat, ach go mbeifeá sásta an Ghaeilge atá agat a úsáid, cibé caighdeán atá agat! Glac leis an deis seo do chuid a dhéanamh d'ár n-oidhreacht nadúrtha agus d'ár n-oidhreacht teanga leis!
The first workcamp of this summer will be through the Irish language. Groundwork want to provide an opportunity for Irish speakers to come together and work together in the woods! Irish will be the main language of the week and it will be suitable for anybody wishing to get out there and use what Irish they have - whether fluent or just possessing the cúpla focal. But don't worry, if you have no Irish at all, the other 11 weeks of this summer's workcamps will be in English!
