Dust off your Irish Gaelic for the carnival!

Doing your spring cleaning (glanadh an earraigh)? Dust off your Irish Gaelic dictionary and help us air out a few new words and phrases in time for the the Irish Gaelic edition of the Carnival of Irish Heritage & Culture.

It is springtime! The time has come to put away the winter clothes (tá an t-am tagtha éadaí an Gheimhridh a chur ar leataobh) and bring some Irish Gaelic out into the fresh air!

Hope you'll join us for the 5th edition of the Carnival of Irish Heritage & Culture here at A light that shines again as we honor the beauty of the Irish language with a focus on Irish Gaelic names and words.

  • Has the charm of the name of a place in Ireland always called to you to visit someday?
  • As a child did you secretly wish you had the Irish name of a great-grandparent instead of the name you were born with?
  • Do you have a story to tell about someone with an Irish surname?
  • Is there an Irish proverb that you have always loved to let slide off of your tongue in its original language?
Join us for the carnival. The only prerequisite is that your post must tie in with our focus on the Irish Gaelic language.

Posts for this edition of the carnival are due April 27. Submit your entries here. The carnival will be posted at A light that shines again on St. Ciarán's Day, April 30. (Well, one of the St. Ciarán's days - there are actually 14 in the calendar of Irish saints. Now there's one popular Irish Gaelic name!)

There is no better way to revive Irish
than for a crowd of people to spread it.
