The annual festival runs nationwide until St. Patrick’s Day and aims to promote the use of the Irish language in everyday life. Drum Community Centre invites you to join them for a ‘cupán tae’ to celebrate Seachtain na Gaeilge on Sunday, 14 March 2010 from 10.30am to 1pm. Regardless of how much or little Irish you have, you are invited to come along and speak a cúpla focal, have a bit of fun and enjoy a cupán tae. Further details are available on the Drum website at www.drum.ie.
Beidh an fhéile bhliantúil ar siúl ar fud na tíre go dtí Lá Fhéile Pádraig. An chuspóir atá leis an bhféile ná úsáid na Gaeilge a chur chun cinn sa saol laethúil. Tá Ionad Pobail an Droma ag tabhairt cuireadh duit ‘cupán tae’ a bheith agat leo chun ‘Seachtain na Gaeilge’ a cheiliúradh ar an Domhnach, 14 Márta 2010 óna 10.30am go 1pm. Is cuma an bhfuil tú líofa sa teanga nó nach bhfuil, tugtar cuireadh duit teacht agus cúpla focal a labhairt, píosa spraoi a bheith agat agus taitneamh a bhaint as cupán tae nó caife. Tá gach eolas ar fáil ar shuíomh idirlín an Droma ag www.drum.ie.
