Six students from Coláiste Oiriall together with students from other post primary and primary schools, gathered in the Pavilion at Leopardstown racecourse in Dublin last week to attend the Gaelbhratach presentation.

The Gaelbhratach scheme, funded by Foras na Gaeilge, recognises the promotion of the Irish language in both secondary and primary schools around the country. Bhain siad an-sult as an lá agus léirigh siad go raibh meas acu ar an Ghaeilge agus go raibh siad bródúil aisti. Bhuail siad suas le scoláirí ó gach cearn den tír a bhfuil na tuairimí dearfacha céanna acu faoin teanga. Adding to the atmosphere was the performance of the group Seo Linn who had the students dancing and singing along to their many hits ‘as Gaeilge’. Acting as MCs, TV stars Micheál Ó Ciaraidh and Gráinne Bleasdale made sure the event ran smoothly. A considerable body of work is required on the part of the school to beawarded the Gaelbhratach, that schools have many targets to reach and that of this work must be verified through various means, including postings on the Gaelbhratach blog and keeping a journal, which is forwarded to Gael-Linn at the end of the year. Thaistil na scoláirí seo go dtí an ocáid i ag ráschúrsa Bhaile na Lobhar: Aoibheann Nic Uaidh, Danielle Nic Cionna, Jordan Maolmhuire, Aimee Nic Neachtain, Aaron Ó’Gamhna agus Faolán Ó Cathmhaoil. Tá n grúpa uilig an-bhuíoch den Mhúinteoir Collette Nic Gafraidh a threoraigh iad agus a chuir comhairle orainn le linn an fheachtais. D’ardaigh Alannah Nic Grianna agus Aoibheann Nic Uaidh an ghaelbhrathach ar son an choiste ag searmanas Dé hAoine amuigh ar Phlasóg na Leac. Déanann muid comhghairdeas leo.
