feargal_launch4Beidh caothaoirleach Glór na Móna, Feargal MacIonnrachtaigh ag seoladh a scoth leabhar, Language, Resistance and Revival i gColáiste Feirste ar an Déardaoin an 18ú de mí Áibreáin ag 19:30.

Insíonn Language, Resistance and Revival an scéal faoi na forbairtí teangeolaíocha agus oideachais úrnua a tharla i measc cimí Poblachtanacha sa Cheis Fhada ó bhí 1972-2000 ann.

Le linn tréimhse de streachailt searbh idir cimí Poblachtanacha agus an stát Briotanach, teagascadh agus labhraíodh an Ghaeilge mar fhoirm frithsheasmhachta i rith carcraithe. Díríonn an leabhar seo istigh ar an scéal don chéad uair agus deánann sé anailís ar an tionchar a bhí aige ar an athbheochan cultúrtha sa phobal naisiúnach taobh amuigh de ballaí an phríosúin.

Bunaithe ar agallaimh gan fasach, díríonn Feargal MacIonnrachtaigh ar eochairthreimhse i stair na hÉireann tríd na cuntais bunúil agus na cuntais ar an “taobh istigh” de na heochair charactair i Athbheochan na Gaeilge nua-aoiseach. Maith thú a Fheargail!

Glór na Móna’s chairperson Feargal MacIonnrachtaigh will be launching his sensational new book Language, Resistance and Revival in Coláiste feargal_launch4Feirste on Thursday the 18th of April at 19:30.

Language, Resistance and Revival tells the untold story of the truly groundbreaking linguistic and educational developments that took place among Republican prisoners in Long Kesh prison from 1972-2000.

During a period of bitter struggle between Republican prisoners and the British state, the Irish language was taught and spoken as a form of resistance during incarceration. The book unearths this story for the first time and analyses the rejuvenating impact it had on the cultural revival in the nationalist community beyond the prison walls.

Based on unprecedented interviews, Feargal Mac Ionnrachtaigh explores a key period in Irish history through the original and ‘insider’ accounts of key protagonists in the contemporary Irish language revival. Maith thú a Fheargail!
