Irish Language Program: Comhaltas North American Convention, 7 – 10 May 2015

a chairde Gaeil,

This is a reminder that the Comhaltas North American Convention is taking place in Parsippany, NJ, in less than 2 weeks (7 – 10 Bealtaine 2015).

We have a very extensive Irish language program which, even in itself, would justify making the trip.  We have 3 excellent Irish language instructors, two of whom are visiting Fulbright professors from Ireland.  We have Irish language classes, a teacher’s workshop, a lecture concerning the Irish language during the Easter Uprising (1916), and a mini “Oireachtas na Gaeilge”.  All of this is in addition to the ordinary convention program of workshops, music, dance, banquet, concert and céilís.  The convention also coincides with the Mid-Atlantic Fleadh.

The Irish language program is available at:



The convention program and registration brochure is available at:



There is a designated Irish language area, “Ionad na Gaeilge”.  This area includes the Morris and Ford boardrooms, which are on the second floor, up the stairs behind the front desk.  Please note that earlier correspondence referred to the “Livingston Boardroom”, but renovation has occurred, and the room names have changed.

GAEILGE

a chairde Gaeil,

Is nóta cuimhneacháin é seo go reáchtálfar Coinbhinsiún Bliantúil Chomhaltais Mheiriceá Thuaidh i bParsippany, NJ, níos lú ná coicís ón am i láthair (7 – 10 Bealtaine 2015).

Tá clár Gaeilge, atá iontach agus forleathan againn.  Dá réir, is cinnte gurbh fhiú an turas.  Tá 3 múinteoir ardcháilíochta againn, beirt atá ina aoi-ollaimh Fulbright ó Éirinn.  Beidh ranganna Gaeilge ann, ceardlann múinteoirí, léacht faoin Ghaeilge le linn Éirí Amach na Cásca (1916), agus mion-Oireachtas-na-Gaeilge.  Tá sé seo ar fad de bhreis ar ghnáth-chlár an Choinbhisiúin a chlúdaíonn ceardlanna, ceol, damhsa, féasta, ceolchoirm agus céilithe.  Tá sé ag láthair agus am céanna le Fleá an Lár-Atlantaigh. 

Tá an clár Gaeilge le fáil ag:



Tá bróisiúr cláir agus clárúcháin ginearálta le fáil ag:



Beidh “Ionad na Gaeilge” le fáil againn tríd an deireadh seachtaine, agus clúdaíonn an t-ionad an Morris Boardroom agus an Ford Boardroom.  Tá siad ar an dara hurlár, thíos an staighre taobh thiar na deasca tosaigh.  NB: rinne comhfhreagras roimh seo tagairt ar an “Livingston Boardroom”, ach tharla obair athchóirithe ón am sin, agus ath-ainmnigh na seomraí.
