Seachtain na Gaeilge

These are the gaeilgeoirí you should be following on Insta this Seachtain na Gaeilge

If you need a hand with the cúpla focal.

WITH SEACHTAIN NA Gaeilge 2018 in full swing, it’s important to give kudos to the people promoting the language in the face of naysayers.

Instagram has provided a new platform for many to showcase their wares and talents, but it’s also become a space for people to learn as others teach them. Here are the people keeping the teanga alive all thanks to their commitment to the ‘gram.

1. Múinteoir Meg (@muinteoirmeg)

A history and Irish teacher (the clue’s in the username), Meg is constantly giving her followers phrases gach lá to add to their cúpla focal.

Check back through her highlights if you fancy brushing up on terminology about everything from pancakes to, eh, people you fancy. Ideal.

2. Eadaoin Fitzmaurice (@bandeadd)

Given that Eadaoin did her college thesis on social media and the Irish language, it makes sense that she would feature on this list.

For Seactain Na Gailege, Eadaoin is sharing a ‘focal an lae’ (word a day) with her followers. It’s a great starting point if you’re a bit nerbhíseach about picking up the language again!

3. Caoimhe Ní Chathail (@caoimhechats)

Journalist and broadcaster Caoimhe writes nearly all of her stories as Gaeilge, whether she’s working or out on the town. 

4. Póilín Nic Géidigh (@poilination / @mise.poilin)

Póilín makes a lot of beautiful visual media through Gaeilge. She’s also a regular over on BLOC TG4 doing some interesting takeovers, most recently at a Drink And Draw event.

5. Úna-Minh Kavanagh (@unaminh /@beforemymamdies)

And speaking of Bloc, Una-Minh is over on their story at the minute bringing you a travel takeover all the way from Vietnam. How bad.

If you’re looking for other ‘grammers over the next week, @bloc_tg4 should be your first port of call.

Seachtain na Gaeilge runs until 17 March.
