Sinn Féin Slogadh 2013

5 March, 2013


Tá Sinn Féin ag reáchtáil Slógadh 2013 i mBéal Feirste ar an dara deire seachtain de mhí Márta.

“Is deireadh seachtaine de cheiliúradh ar an ngrá agus mórtas atá againn as gach rud Gaelach agus an Ghaeilge” a deir Liadh Ní Riada, Oifigeach Náisiúnta Gaeilge Shinn Féin. Beidh imeachtaí éagsúla á reáchtáil, ina measc beidh siúlóidí stairiúla agus nádúir, ranganna Gaeilge, ceardlanna rince ar an sean-nós, céilí, mar aon le ceiliúradh ar obair dhearfach Líofa.

“Tá téama an phríomhchaint i mbliana bunaithe ar féiniúlacht chultúrtha agus ar an pholaitíocht le Peadar Tóibín TD mar chathaoirleach. Tá an t-ádh linn leis na cainteoirí inspioráideacha atá ag glacadh páirt. Ina measc tá an scríbhneoir Michael Harding a bhfuil leabhar nua díreach foilsithe aige ‘Staring at Lakes’ agus scríobhann sé alt don ‘Irish Times’ gach seachtain” arsa Ní Riada.

“I ndáiríre tugann an deireadh seachtaine seo seans dúinn bualadh le cairde ar fud na tíre agus is deis a bheidh ann chun aithne a chuir ar ár nádúr Ghaelach féin arís mar aon le spórt a bheith againn ar ndóigh!” arsa Liadh.

Sinn Féin is holding their annual Slógadh weekend in Belfast during the 2nd weekend of March.

“It is our way of celebrating our pride and love for all things Gaeilge” says Liadh Ní Riada, National Irish language officer. A range of activities will take place including history / nature walks, Irish language classes, sean-nós dancing workshops as well as celebrating the success of Líofa.

“The theme this year revolves around our cultural identity and the role that plays in politics, we are lucky to have several inspiring speakers including the author Michael Harding who has recently published his new book ‘Staring at Lakes’ which is a memoir of love melancholy and magical thinking” says Ní Riada.

“The weekend is really a great way to catch up with friends from all over the country, it’s an opportunity to engage with our own Irish identity and to celebrate and enjoy the uniqueness of being Irish.”
