Background

Dia daoibh achan duine, is mise Laoighseach, bhur n-Oifigeach i mbliana! Is as Tír Chonaill mé (yay!) ach is as Galltacht Thír Chonaill mé (boo!) Is iníon léinn mé, i mbliain na céime anois, ag déanamh staidéir ar Ghaeilge, Stair, agus Scríbhneoireacht Chruthaitheach. Tá sé ar intinn agam an teanga a scaipeadh ar champas, in éineacht leis an Chumann Gaelach, agus cultúr na Gaeilge a chur chun cinn. Le déanaí, cuireadh cearta na nGael fá chois ag déine agus ag neamhaird rialtais. Caithfimid teacht le chéile agus troid ar son na Gaeilge, agus mar bhur n-Oifigeach, déanfaidh mé mo dhícheall ár dteanga a bhrú chun tosaigh in OÉ Gaillimh. Beirimis bua!
