DSC_0192Thosaigh Glór na Móna cúrsa úr sa dá bhunscoil áitiúil i mí Eanáir urraithe ag Foras na Gaeilge. Cuireadh tús le teagasc na Gaeilge i gcúrsa 12 seachtain i mbunscoil Naomh Bernaidín i mBaile Uí Mhurchú  agus i mBunscoil Naomh Aodán ar Bóthar na Carraige Báine. Dúirt Oifigeach Glór na Móna Brónagh Fusco, “chuir muid tús leis an tógra DSC_0195seo de bharr go dtuigimid go bhfuil sé tábhachtach mar eagraíocht pobail a bheith ag freastal ar gach duine sa phobail pé cainteoirí líofa iad nó nach bhfuil, agus tá sé fíorthábhachtach eolas agus suim na daoine óga a spreagadh agus a chothú ó thaobh an chultúr agus teanga de.” Dúirt eascaitheoir an tógra, Máirtín MacGabhann, “is tógra an sultmhar é domhsa mar theagascóir de bharr go mbaineann na daoine óga uilig sult as an chúrsa, le scileanna s’acu ag forbairt an t-am ar fad agus is é sin an rud is tábhachtaí, scileanna teanga na bpaistí a fhorbairt i suíomh sultmhar.” Tá cuma ar an scéal go bhfuil ag iarraidh go geal leis an tógra agus go bhfuil glúin úr de Ghaeil óga ag teacht fríd sna scoileanna Béarla.

DSC_0192Glór na Móna started a new course sponsored by Foras na Gaeilge in the local primary schools back in January. The twelve week Irish language programme began in Ballymurphy’s St Bernadette’s Primary School and St Aidan’s Christian Brothers Primary School on the Whiterock Road. Brónagh Fusco, Glór na Móna’s DSC_0195development officer stated, “we began this project in St Benadette’s and St Aidan’s as we understand the importance of addressing not only the needs of fluent Irish speakers in the community but also those with no prior experience. It is important to educate and nourish young people’s interest with regards to their culture and language.” Project facilitator Máirtín MacGabhann added, “It’s a very enjoyable project to work on as a facilitator due to the children’s enthusiasm, their language skills are constantly developing. And that is what is important, developing the children’s language skills in an enjoyable environment.” It seems that the project is progressing nicely with a new generation of young Gaels coming through English medium primary schools.
