Gaeilge ins na Clubanna

A number of initiatives are being introduced to help promote the use of the Irish language among the GAA clubs of the County. Clubs are being asked to ensure that more Irish is used in a number of different situations such as:

?Name of Pitch should be in Irish
?Directional Signs to Pitch, Plans to have Irish or bilingual signs to all pitches
?Trophies and Medals ? Inscribe in Irish only
?Jerseys, tee-shirts ? Club name in Irish
?Kit Bags ? Club name as Gaeilge or Irish on one side
?scoreboards – name of club in Irish
?Flags, if name of club is on flag ? Irish
?Lotto Tickets ? Some Irish on them, eg: Club name etc
?Match Programmes: names in Irish and English
?Web Sites: Some Irish on club websites
?Club Notes in paper: Some Irish
?Scór programmes: Names etc in Irish

These and a number of other suggestions for the use of Irish are being circulated to clubs. There has been a great improvement in the use of Irish on shopfronts, estate names and in other ways. A number of Irish classes and Comhr? groups are about to start for the winter also.
