Is tionscnamh de chuid Fhorbairt Feirste é An Griangraf Gafa, a bhfuil tacaíocht faighte aige ón Roinn Cultúr Ealíon agus Fóillíochta, agus is é atá déanta ag an údar Jim Herron sa leabhar iontach seo ná griangrafanna agus seanfhocail a cheangal le chéile sa dóigh is go bhféadfadh an léitheoir tairbhe a bhaint chan amháin as téacs an ghriangraif ach as seanfhocal cuí chomh maith.

An afternoon of music, craic and celebration is in store at Cultúrlann MacAdam Ó Fiaich on St Brigid’s Day when veteran Gael Micheál Ó Máirtín, launches ‘Pictures and Proverbs’, an inspirational book from the author Jim Herron.


Music of the highest quality will also form part of the celebrations with Nodlaig Brolly filling the Dillon Gallery with the strains of the harp.


The event is open to everyone and proceedings commence at 1.00pm on Saturday February 1st under the capable direction of MC Pat Rice.


An Griangraf Gafa is a Forbairt Feirste project, which has received generous backing from the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure and in which author Jim Herron, through his wonderful book, brings Irish language signs and Irish proverbs together in a way which allows the reader to get benefit not only from the image and its associated text but also from the appropriate proverbs to which he links them.


This project illustrates that Irish language signs and the proverbs associated with them in this work have something magical about them, that these signs are asserting publicly that the language we are all trying to preserve and promote is alive and kicking.  In spite of everything.
