About An Spidéal Wiki

Page history last edited by An Glór (Jenny) 11 years, 11 months ago

 

I'm Jenny Gallagher and I have been living in An Spidéal for almost ten years. For the last six years I have been a full time stay-at-home mom. Before that I worked as a computer consultant.

 

Is mise Jenny Uí Ghallchobhair agus tá mé i mo chonaí sa Spidéil le beagnach deich mbliana anuas. Is tuismitheoir agus bean tí lán aimsire mé le sé bliaina anuas. Roimhe sin, bhí mé phostaithe mar comhairleoir rómhaireachta.

I have created this website because I found it very difficult to find out about things happening in the community and I regularly heard about events after the fact. I mentioned this to some friends who said that they experienced the same problems. There didn't seem to be single central location for community information. Instead some information was posted around the village and other bits were spread by word of mouth.

   

My hope is that if enough people use this website and contribute things that they know about, we'll end up with a complete list of what's going on that everyone can access instead of needing to be in the right place at the right time to find out about something.

   
Secondly I wanted a project to keep my brain ticking over!    

An Spidéal is a village in the gaeltacht and the Irish language is very important in the area. However, there are people living in An Spidéal that don't have any irish. Therefore I will try to publish information on this website in both Irish and English. That being said, I'm not a native Irish speaker, so if you notice any mistakes with the Irish on this website, or know of a more natural way to say something, please do not hesitate to send me an Email or add a comment as I wish to improve my Irish! Otherwise I'll never learn and will continue making the same mistakes :-)

 

Is sráid bhaile sa Ghaeltacht í An Spidéal agus tá an ghaeilge an-tábhachtach don cheantar. Ach tá daoine ina chonaí sa Spidéal nach bhfuil aon gaeilge acu. De réir sin, déanfaidh mé iarracht an eolas a foilsím ar an suimh as gaeilge agus as bearla. É sin ráite, ni chainteoir dúchasach mé. Má fhéiceann tú aon botún leis an gaeilge ar an suimh, seol teachtaireacth chugam faoi le do thoill mar bá mhaith liom mo chuid gaeilge a fheabhsú! 

Please note that this website does not claim to be the definitive website of An Spidéal, nor does it claim to represent the opinions of all the people of An Spidéal.     

If you have any queries or concerns with this website (or problems signing up), please send me an Email and I will be happy to answer your questions.

  Má tá fadhb ag éinne nó aon ceist faoi an suimh seo, seol teachtaireacht chugam faoi agus beidh mé an-sásta freagair a thabhairt duit.
     

Regards,

Jenny.
