Leagan Na Gaelige at Kilmacud Crokes
Scroll down for English version.
Tá Cill Mochuda na Crócaigh ag iarraidh an teanga agus cultúr Gaelach a chur chun cinn le déanaí. Toghadh John O’Loughlin mar Oifigeach Cultúir agus Teanga an chumainn agus tá sé ag ceapadh plean fé láthair maidir leis an aidhm seo.
Le déanaí, chlaraigh John an chumann le Fondúireacht Sheosaimh Mhic Dhonncha, a thugann tacaíocht le Glór na nGael do chumainn CLG atá ag iarraidh an Ghaeilge a chur chun cinn ins an phobail.
Tá deontais éagsúla ar fail ón bhfondúireacht agus is féidir le haon chumann bonn a bhaint amach: ór, airgead nó cré-umha; ag braith ar an méid cuspóir atá bainte amach acu. Tá a thuilleadh sonraí le feiscint ag an nasc idirlíon seo a leanas:
Tá an-áthas orainn a chur in iúl gur bronnadh an bonn cré-umha ar Chill Mhochuda na Crócaigh I mbliana. Sa ghriangraf ceangailte leis seo, feictear John O’Loughlin agus Rita Úi Chonnaill ag an mbronnadh.
Mas rud é go mbeadh suim agat páirt a ghlacadh agus tacaíocht a thabhairt leis an mbonn airgid a bhaint amach, téigh I dteagmháil le John féin ag an ríomhphost seo a leanas:
Cill Mocuda Na Crócaigh is committed to the promotion of the Irish Language and Culture. John O’ Loughlin has taken up the role of Irish Language Officer ( Oifige Gaeilge) in the club and he is currently putting a plan in place to raise the profile of the Gaeilge .
John recently registered the club in the GAA Joe Mc Donagh foundation. The Joe Mc Donagh foundation is a support service provided by Glor na nGael to GAA clubs wishing to further the Irish language in their club and community.
Foundation is designed to help develop that promotion in a more measured and planned fashion. Grants are available from the foundation to support the club and medals will be awarded to clubs for the various levels of achievement in the promotion of the language. The Joe Mc Donagh medal will be presented to registered clubs for implementing a certain number of actions with regards to the promotion of the language within the club. The medal is a noted sign of achievement and recognition for continued work on behalf of the language. As a club completes the recommended list of activities, bronze, silver and gold medals will be awarded as appropriate. The bronze medal will be awarded on completion of 25% of the listed activities, the silver for 50% and gold on completion of 80%. The medal serves as both motivation and recognition, providing a clear attainable goal for clubs wishing to facilitate a role for the language within their membership.

We are delighted to update members, that Kilmacud Crokes has been awarded a bronze medal from this initial engagement and assessment.
If you would like to get involved in this focus in the club and work towards attaining the next level of medal recognition, John would love to hear from you. He is working towards a goal of putting a group together and defining a plan we can drive in 2019. Please drop him an email to register your interest at firstname.lastname@example.org
