Kerry County Council has unveiled a programme of events and initiatives for Seachtain na Gaeilge which begins today and runs until St Patrick’s Day.
The local authority, in promoting the use of Irish, has announced a number of displays, competitions and community-based events.
During Seachtain na Gaeilge, Kerry County Council will be promoting the use of Irish at all of the public counters in its offices around the county.
A 20-minute bilingual flash-mob presentation based on the cultural revolution leading up to 1916, entitled ‘Tobshlua 1916’, has also been composed and will be performed by schools, local drama societies and community groups.
Kerry County Council is also inviting participation in a window display competition, ”An Fhuinneog is Gaelaí’ which carries a prize fund of €1,000 and is being run in conjunction with Conradh na Gaeilge, Fóram Gaeilge Chiarraí and the business community in each of the four municipal districts.
