Gaeilge


Tá gradam ‘An Cailín Gaelach’ de chuid Chomórtas Peile na Gaeltachta bainte don dara bliain as a chéile ag Ceathrú Ghaeltachta Bhéal Feirste.


Bronnadh an Gradam ar Ghráinne Holland, ar ceoltóir í leis an bhuíon cheoil Casadh, Oíche Dhomhnaigh 6ú Meitheamh in Óstán Broadhaven Béal a’ Mhuirthead, Chondae Mhaigh Eo.


Onóir mhór a bhí ann do Chathair Bhéal Feirste an duais a thabhairt leo don dara bliain as a chéile. Arna bhronnadh an ghradaim ar Ghráinne rinne Seán Bán Breathnach ó Raidió na Gaeltachta tagairt don tiomántas a bhí ag muintir Bhéal Feirste agus ag Laochra Loch Lao CLG don Ghaeilge agus ghuigh sé gach rath ar Laochra Loch Lao ar an pháirc imeartha sa todhchaí. Dúirt Seán Bán nar mhiste leis féin an Comórtas a fheiceáil i mBéal Feirste Cois Cuain amach anseo.


Bhí Laochra Loch Lao páirteach i gComórtas Peile na Gaeltachta i mBéal a’ Mhuirthead ón 5ú go dtí an 7ú Meitheamh. ”Is é seo an ceathrú bliain a ghlac na Laochra páirt sa chomórtas agus i mbliana bhí mí-ádh orthu nuair a chaill siad amach, tar éis am breise, do Na Dúnaibh CLG Tír Chonáill nach raibh ach an farasbarr is lú d’aon chúilín acu.


Ag labhairt dó tar éis an chomórtais dúirt Jake Mac Siacais, cathaoirleach Laochra Loch Lao:


” Ba mhaith liom ar dtús ár mbuíochas a ghabháil le lucht eagraithe an Chomórtais do 2010 Béal a’ Mhuirthead CLG. Ba mhaith liom comhghairdeas a ghabháil le Gráinne, a raibh an gradam seo tuillte go maith aici. Bhí sí ina hambasadóir iontach do Bhéal Feirste agus d’Aontroim. Ba mhaith liom mo bhuíochas a ghabháil le gach duine a bhí bainteach leis an fhoireann mar gheall ar an iarracht eipiciúil a rinne siad agus faoi dheireadh ba mhaith liom comhghairdeas a ghabháil leis Na Dúnaibh CLG ar bhua iontach. Maith sibh go léir.”

The coveted Comórtas Peile na Gaeltachta ‘Cailín Gaelach’ award has been scooped by Belfast’s Gaeltacht Quarter for the second year running.


The award was presented to Gráinne Holland, a musician with the traditional group Casadh, on Sunday evening June 6th in the Broadhaven Hotel in Belmullet Co Mayo.


It is a huge honour for Belfast to have scooped the prestigious award for the second year running. Making the presentation, Raidió na Gaeltacht’s Seán Bán Breathnach made special mention of Belfast and Laochra Loch Lao CLG’s determined promotion of the Irish Language and wished Loachra Loch Lao future success on the field of play. Seán Bán said that he personally would be delighted to see the competition being hosted in Belfast in the coming years.


Laochra Loch Lao CLG were participants in Comórtas Peile na Gaeltachta in Belmullet, County Mayo, from June 5th until June 7th. This is the fourth year in which the Gaeltacht Quarter team has participated in the competition and on this occasion they were unlucky to lose out to Na Dúnaibh CLG after extra time with the narrowest margin of a single point.


Speaking after the competition Laochra Loch Lao chair Jake Mac Siacais said:


” Firstly I want to give thank the organisers of this year’s competion Béal a’ Mhuirthead CLG. I want to congratulate Gráinne who was a very worthy recipient of this recognition and who was a great ambassador for Belfast and Antrim. I want to thank all those associated with the team for a huge, indeed epic effort, and finally I want to congratulate Na Dúnaibh on a great win. Well done to all.”
