GAELTACHT SCHOLARSHIP? The GAA (Bord Thrá Lí, Bord Chiarraí, Comhairle na Mumhan), in conjunction with Coláistí Chorca Dhuibhne, is offering a limited number of Gaeltacht scholarships to young members (ages 12 to 17 years) of GAA clubs. These GAA-sponsored scholarships will enable club members to attend residential Irish language courses which will improve their spoken Irish. They’ll be based in the Corca Dhuibhne (West Kerry) Gaeltacht for 2/3 weeks during the summer. Over the years, many young members of The Rock Club were on these Cúrsaí Gaeilge and thoroughly enjoyed the sport, lessons, music, song and dance in atmaisféar Gaelach. It’s a great way to begin preparations for an Irish oral exam….worth 40% of marks in the Leaving Certificate Examination. Interested applicants are asked to text their names to 087 6606693 asap. Closing date set for 20th April (Satharn na Cásca). Please pass on the word to friends as, unfortunately, some look for the scoláireacht after the closing date! Ná cuir do leas ar cairde! A couple of players have already applied. Bain triail as saoire sa Ghaeltacht, a dhaoine óga! You’ll come home with new friends, a good healthy colour, nice memories agus blas breá ar do chuid Gaolainne!!
