Irish

Fáilte chuig Roinn na Gaeilge. Tá roinn ghníomhach agus dhíograiseach againn anseo i gColáiste Mhaincín Naofa, ag comhoibriú ar son gach scólaire chun a chumas a bhaint amach san ábhar féin agus chun comhshaol dearfach a chothú i dtaobh na teanga i gcoitinne.

Welcome to the Irish Department (Roinn na Gaeilge). We have an active and diligent team of teachers working together to improve every student’s standard of Irish and to promote a positive environment for the learning of the language.

Mission of the department – Ár misean

Is é misean Roinn na Gaeilge ná gach iarracht a dhéanamh chun freastal ar leibhéil chumais gach scólaire; atmaisféar dearfach, spreagúil Gaelach a chothú sa rang Gaeilge agus i gcomhshaol na scoile araon; agus a chur ar shúile na scoláirí go léir gur teanga bheo fheidhmiúil í an Ghaeilge sa saol inniu.

It is the mission of the Irish Department to help every student achieve his full potential, and to create a positive and stimulating atmosphere in the classroom and in the wider school environment. Our hope is that each student here will recognise Irish (Gaeilge) as a living and viable language.

Aims & Objectives of the department – Ár spriocanna

Is í aidhm na Roinne ná cumas cumarsáide sa Ghaeilge a fhorbairt i ngach scoláire trí chomtháthú a dhéanamh ar na ceithre scil teanga- scileanna labhartha, éisteachta, scíbhneoireachta agus léitheoireachta. Chomh maith leis sin tá sé mar sprioc againn múinín an dalta a chothú ina chumas féin, agus go mbainfidh sé caighdéan ard amach sna Scrúdaithe Stáit. Mar aon leis sin is mian linn meas agus bród a chothú i dtaca le teanga, cultúr agus oidhreacht na Gaeilge le linn saol na scoile agus ar aghaidh sa saol lasmuigh den scoil.

It is the aim of Roinn na Gaeilge to develop every student’s ability to communicate through Irish by enhancing her spoken, listening, written and reading skills. It is also our aim to instill a confidence in every student as to his ability, and to help him achieve his full potential in the State Examinations. We aim to nurture a love for the Irish language, culture and heritage in our students during his time here in St. Munchin’s College and beyond.
