GAAgaeilge to take centre stage at Sunday’s All-Ireland Football Semi-Final
The GAA’s ‘Lá Mór na Gaeilge’ will take centre stage this Sunday, 10th of July, at the Junior All-Ireland Football Final and the All-Ireland Senior Football Semi-Final between Kerry and Dublin in Croke Park. Activities and entertainment 'as Gaeilge’ are planned throughout the day for the packed crowd to enjoy.
Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael, Labhrás Mac Cárthaigh, said:
‘The Irish language is an integral part of the GAA and we are looking forward to giving the teams and their supporters a ‘fáilte mhór Ghaelach’, to Croke Park and ‘Lá Mór na Gaeilge’ on Sunday. I hope everyone enjoys the different things we have planned for the day!’
As part of ‘Lá Mór na Gaeilge’ supporters from Kerry and Dublin, as well as the other participating counties, can send their selfies and their messages as Gaeilge via Twitter and Instagram to #GAAgaeilge to be in with a chance of appearing on the fan wall, on the big screen in Croke Park.
‘Na Hot Toddies’, who hail from the Ráth Chairn Gaeltacht in Meath will be providing half-time entertainment while 'bean an tí', Lynette Faye, will be chatting to a few special guests pitchside on the day. Listen out for tracks from the #GAAgaeilge Spotify playlist, also, and keep an eye out on our big screen throughout the day!
The GAA’s Ambasadóir na Gaeilge, Paul Conroy, recently helped to update the #GAAgaeilge Spotify playlist. Listen to all tracks HERE:
Those with Cusack Stand tickets will get an opportunity to have their picture taken with the Sam Maguire Cup in our ‘Gaeilge zone’ at the back of the stand before the Dublin v Kerry match.
Supporters from all participating counties are very welcome to join in the day and use their Gaeilge, whether that be a ‘cúpla focal’, ‘Gaeilge bhriste’ or ‘Gaeilge líofa’. An Ghaeilge abú! Labhraímis í agus mairfidh sí!!! Fáilte roimh chách...
