Is fada an bhóthar é ó Bhanladéis go Béal Feirste ach rinne Ministir Talmhaíochta na Bangladéise, Saifuzzaman Chowdury, an turas fada sin an seachtain seo chuaigh thart agus é ag tabhairt an chéad chuairt oifigiúil ón tír sin go Coláiste Feirste. Agus thig an forbairt is déanaí de chuid an Cheathrú Ghaeltachta a dhéanfaidh triantán de thalamh dí-mhaoin a fhorbairt mar suíomh tithíochta Gaeilge agus áis turasóireachta.
It’s a long road from Bangladesh to Belfast, yet that was the journey undertaken last week by the Bangladesh Minister of Land Saifuzzaman Chowdrury who made that first visit from the far-flung land to Ireland’s biggest Irish Medium College, Coláiste Feirste. Where he visited the site of the latest Gaeltacht Quarter development which will see the transformation of a disused triangle site at the front of the college into a vibrant Irish language housing and tourism project.

Ón Oirthear Aniar – They Came from the East

Tomás Stothers and friend from Strand Presbyterian with the Original Bible from Broadway Presbyterian Church, Now Cultúrlann.

Dúirt stiúrthóir Forbairt Feirste, Jake MacSiacais, go raibh áthas an domhain air sean chara de chuid na Ceathrún Gaeltachta a fheiceáil ar ais agus cairde óna phobal féin in éineacht leis. Tháinig Tomás, chuig an Cultúrlann i bhfad siad i 1991 nuair a chéad fosclaíodh an áit. Baisteadh Tomás féin anseo nuair a bhí sé ina Eaglais.
Forbairt Feirste director, Jake MacSiacais has said he was absolutely delighted that an old friend, Tomas Stothers, had returned to the Gaeltacht Quarter after a recent visit bringing other members of his congregation with him. Tomás, a relative of Jim Stothers, the Deputy Clerk of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland, first visited Cultúrlann when it opened way back in 1991. He was himself baptised in Broadway. Jim, of course, is a man himself with a huge interest in the history of the Church and of the role played by Presbyterians in preserving Gaelic.

IS MITHID ATHRÚ BHEITH ANN TIME FOR CHANGE

City Hall

Tá an Chomhairle úr tofa. Agus muid isteach sa mhandáid úr seo is mithid dul chun cinn éifeachtach a fheiceáil ar an ghealltanas fadseasta chun Cathair Ilghnéitheach Chomhionannach a fhorbairt. Tá Bord na Ceathrún Gaeltachta le fada an la ag plé leis an Chomhairle ach le rófhada theip ar an Chomhairle dul i ngleic leis an cur in éadan a bhí ann maidir le cur chun cinn na Ceathrún Gaeltachta.
The new Council is now elected. As we face into the new mandate it is high time to effectively deliver on the long-promised aspiration of Belfast as a ‘Diverse City of Equals’. The Gaeltacht Quarter Board has long engaged with Council but Council has failed, so far, to break down the reluctance of some to embrace and promote the Gaeltacht Quarter.

Róisín Nic Giolla Bhríde, Ceannaire Roinn Ealaíon Choláiste Feirste leis na daltaí a chruthaigh íomhanna do gach chondae in Éirinn atá le sonrú ar na chamáin sa suite ealaíne IDIRCHAMÁNAIBH sa Spórtlann

Is iontach agus sláintiúil an rud é rudaí a bheith idir chamánaibh againn i gcónaí agus leis an saothar ealaíne is déanaí ag Coláiste Feirste is féidir sin a dhéanamh go fisiciúl agus ó thaobh na fealsúnachta de.
It is wonderful and it is healthy to continual keep ideas and concepts under discussion and with the latest artwork at Coláiste Feirste we can do that both physically and metaphorically because the artwork entitled Idir Chamánaibh meaning literally between hurls also has the meaning of engaging in robust debate.

Folsíodh taighde inniu 10/5/18 ar eispéireas iardhalta de chuid an Ghaeloideachais i mBéal Feirste, a chuirfeas gliondar a gcroí ar lucht labhartha agus lucht tacaíochta na Gaeilge.
Bhí dhá chinnlíne a tháinig amach as an taighde a dhéanann fís cheannródaithe Ghaeltacht Feirste a fhíorú más rud é go raibh fíorú a dhíth agus sin iad go bhfuil 72% den na hiardhaltaí i ndiaidh céim tríú leibhéal a bhaint amach agus go bhfuil an Ghaeilge in úsáid go laethúil ag 94% acu.

Research published today 10/5/18 on the experience of former pupils of Irish Medium Education in Belfast since the 1970s until today will have given a huge boost of confidence to Irish speakers and to those sympathetic to the language.Two headlines stood out in this comprehensive report which will have validated the vision and faith of the pioneers of Belfast’s Gaeltacht, if such validation was required and they were that 72% of the past pupils had achieved third level qualifications and that 94% were using Irish in their daily lives.
