Falls parkrun in Belfast to host Irish language celebration on 26 May

Earlier this year Oireachtas na Gaeilge distributed wristbands with ‘Tá Gaeilge agam’ (‘I speak Irish’) to Irish speaking parkrunners, so that they could identify other Irish speakers at parkruns and chat to them. More than 1,500 bands have since been distributed to 64 parkruns.

 

Falls parkrun in Belfast is now inviting Irish speakers around the island to join them at their sixth birthday celebration parkrun on Saturday 26 May! An t-Oireachtas is encouraging those who wear the ‘Tá Gaeilge agam’ wristbands to make the journey and stay for a chat and some refreshments afterwards. parkrunabú!

 

Níos túisce i mbliana chuir Oireachtas na Gaeilge bandaí riosta le ‘Tá Gaeilge agam’ ar fáil do pharkrunners gur cainteoirí Gaeilge iad, ionas go mbeidís in ann cainteoirí Gaeilge eile a aithint agus dul ag labhairt leo ag na hócáidí parkrun. Dáileadh os cionn 1,500 bandaí ó shin ag 64 parkrun.

 

Tá parkrun na bhFál i mBéal Feirste ag tabhairt cuireadh anois do chainteoirí Gaeilge thart timpeall an oileáin bheith leo agus iad ag ceiliúradh a 6ú breithlá Dé Sathairn 26 Bealtaine! Tá an tOireachtas ag spreagadh daoine a chaitheann an banda riosta Gaelach le tabhairt faoin turas go Béal Feirste agus fanacht i gcomhar píosa cainte, tae agus cáca milis ina dhiaidh. parkrunabú!
