Gael-Linn oversees the Gaelbhratach in schools in partnership with Conradh na Gaeilge. The aim of this scheme is to encourage and enable schools to promote Irish in a planned, ongoing, enjoyable way. All TY Irish classes are involved in this initiative for 2018/19! When the necessary steps have been completed, a Gaelbhratach will eventually be awarded acknowledging and rewarding the work undertaken by the entire school.
Edel Ní Bhraondín from Gaelbhratach met with the Coiste (Committee) on Mon 5 Dec. Gaeilge 24 took place on 13 Nov. 340 schools and 32,000 participated nationwide. In Coláiste Muire, 32 TY students endeavoured to speak Irish for 24 hours. This was supported by many teaching staff. Students wore t-shirts and badges Other activities include an Irish Breakfast morning and refereeing a volleyball match through Irish. A Club Gaeilge has now been set up and is open each Thursday at lunch time. TY1&2 have taught 1A &1D some céilí dances while TY3&4 have been involved in teaching Irish songs to other first year classes. Rebecca Keane, Rúnaí has already approached Ms. Pound with a view to having the morning- prayer read through Irish on some occasions!
