Seachtain na Gaelige

March 14, 2011

Curtha agam ar an mbliain seo caite bhlag agus bhí freagra maith sin a chur ar bunarís i mbliana a aistriú.

Le sé seachtain na Gaeilge agus leath bhealach tríd leis dar críoch an 17 Márta, chinn mé a dhéanamh an post seo i nGaeilge. Le fírinne a d’fhéadfadh a bheith go ndearna mé an leibhéal ngnáthnós Gaeilge roinnt nathanna mícheart.


Cad a chiallaíonn sé dom a bheith as Gaeilge? Is ea, is é sin an cheist mbeidh mé iarracht a fhreagairt.

Bheith Éireannach dom ciallaíonn tú aird ar a lán níos mó thar lear le daoine ag insint scéalta agat maidir leis an gcaoi a n-ghaolta nó teaghlach Éireannach freisin. Cé go bhfuil sé go hiontach le scéalta anseo Níl mé suim i gcaoi a bhfuil do ghaol Gaeilge.

Bheith ciallaíonn Éireannach a chur ar bun agat le rain le dea-11 mhí den bhliain agus a bheith ullamh d’aon seans de nuair a chéim tú lasmuigh den doras.

Bheith ciallaíonn Éireannach ag caint faoi an aimsir laethúil le gearáin de nuair rains sé le i bhfad, agus nuair a thagann an ghrian amach, gearán a dhéanamh go bhfuil sé ró te agus an gá roinnt rain.

Bheith Éireannach ciallaíonn an tír ar fad beidh saoire in Éirinn ar feadh seachtaine nó dhó sa bhliain chun a fháil amach as an áit agus cuardaigh aeráid níos teo.

Bheith ciallaíonn Éireannach go bhfuil muid na daoine ach go cuí i gceart agus gur ceart i gcónaí níos mó ná tíortha eile.

Bheith ciallaíonn Éireannach go bhfuil muid na daoine ach go cuí i gceart agus gur ceart i gcónaí níos mó ná tíortha eile.

Bheith ciallaíonn Éireannach a bheith bródúil as an méid a raibh do sinsear don tír seo agus ar an gcaoi siad á éileamh é a bheith ina Poblacht.

Bain sult as do Naomh Pádraig Lá agus smaoineamh ar dom nuair a bhíonn tú ag ól pionta do glas agus staidéir mé do mo scrúduithe.

English Translation:

I did this post last year and got a good response so putting it up again this year.

With it being Irish week and half way through it with it ending on the 17th March, I decided to do this post in Irish. With the fact that I did ordinary level Irish some phrases could be incorrect.

What does it mean to me being Irish? Yes, that is the question I will try to answer.

Being Irish to me means you get a lot more attention abroad with people telling you stories of how their relatives or family are Irish also. Though it is great to here stories I am not interested in how your relative is Irish.

Being Irish means you put up with rain a good 11 months of the year and to be prepared for any chance of it when you step outside the door. Being Irish means talking about the weather everyday with complaints of when it rains to much and when the sun comes out, complain that it is too hot and need some rain.

Being Irish means the whole country will leave Ireland for a week or two in the year to get away from the place and search warmer climate.

Being Irish means that we are the only people that thinks correctly and are always right over other countries.

Being Irish means being proud of what your ancestors did for this country and how they claimed it to being a republic.

Enjoy your Saint Patricks Day and think of me when you are drinking your green pints while I study for my exams.
