Introductions to the Celtic languages course held by ‘Carraig’ – Belfast inter-Celtic discussion group

Beidh Blaschúrsa cinéal difriúil i mBéal Feirste ag deireadh na míosa seo. Eagraithe ag grúpa nua-bhunaithe darb ainm ‘Carraig’, beidh an cúrsa ag tabhairt blais de na cúig teanga eile Ceilteach in aon lá. Mar sin Dé Sathairn 28ú Meán Fómhair tiocfaidh 20 foghlaimeoir le chéile i gcaifé ‘An Lon Dubh’, Bóthar na bhFál, le lá a chaitheamh ag foghlaim bunbheannachtaí agus frásaí sa Ghaidhlig, Gaelg, Breatnais, Coirnis agus Briotanais, le huair a chloig ar gach teanga.
I measc na múinteoirí don imeacht ceannródach seo beidh Cornach óg agus cainteoir líofa Coirnise a bhfuil cónaí uirthi i mBéal Feirste, Merryn Davies-Deacon, chomh maith le Briotánach, Yann-Charlez Caudal atá ag stopadh sa chathair go gcionn tamaill. Beidh an trí teanga eile faoi stiúr ag Éireannaigh mar atá an Dochtúir Art Hughes leis an Mhainninis agus Maureen Hurndell leis an Bhreatnais.
Bunaíodh ‘Carraig’ – plé-ghrupa Ceilteach Bhéal Feirste, le comhoibriú a fhorbairt idir na tíortha Ceilteacha agus feasacht a ardú ar na cultúir, teangacha agus eile atá sa mhórphobal Ceilteach – feasacht – foghlaim – forbairt, mána an ghrúpa agus beidh tuilleadh imeachtaí a n-eagrú amach anseo.

A taster course of a different kind will be held in Belfast at the end of the month. Organised by ‘Carraig’ a newly established group the course will give introductions to the other five Celtic languages in one day. Therefore, on Saturday 28th September 20 learners will gather in ‘An Lon Dubh’ café (Raidió Fáilte, Falls Road) to spend a day learning basic greetings and phrases in Scots Gaelic, Manx, Welsh, Cornish and Breton, with an hour for each language.
Among the tutors for this first in the Celtic world is a young Cornish woman and fluent Cornish speaker who lives in Belfast, Merryn Davies-Deacon, as well as Yann Charlez Caudal, a Breton who is also spending time in the city. The other three languages will be taught by Irish tutors with Dr. Art Hughes introducing learners to Manx and Maureen Hurndell doing likewise with Welsh.
‘Carraig’ – a Belfast inter-Celtic discussion group – was set up to develop co-operation and links between the Celtic countries and to increase awareness of the cultures, languages, literatures and more of the greater Celtic world. Other events on language, music and literature are planned for the future.
