The MRSC ar son na Gaeilge!

25th March 2015 By Munster Rugby Supporters Club

The MRSC ar son na Gaeilge!

In the spirit of all things Irish related, having just celebrated Seachtain na Gaeilge 2015, and learning a thing or two from CJ, Eusebio and Andrew Smith, the Munster Rugby Supporters Club will be using their cúpla focail in the MRSC bar before and after Munster v Connacht this Saturday with help from the good folks at an tOireachtas.

In the spirit of all things Irish related, having just celebrated Seachtain na Gaeilge 2015, and learning a thing or two from CJ, Eusebio and Andrew Smith, the Munster Rugby Supporters Club will be using their cúpla focail in the MRSC bar before and after Munster v Connacht this Saturday with help from the good folks at an tOireachtas.

Come along and take a look at some of the activities taking place in the bar including a ‘ciorcal cómhrá’ for pre- and post-match discussions. Don’t worry if you are out of practise, we encourage all levels of speakers to join in! An tOireachtas will be there to help with some handy rugby phrases for our members – feel free to roar some of these during the game!

Keep an ear out for the PA during the match who will also be using some choice phrases to celebrate the day.

Post match for the MRSC Lá Gaeilge we will have trad music playing in the bar, why not come along and join in on our new piano!

There will be plenty of craic so make sure you make your way to the first floor in the West Stand via door 18.

To get you in the mood we have translated a famous Munster song for you below; can you guess what it is?

Seas agus troid go gcloisfear cling an chloig!
Seasaigí an fód, ag tabhairt buillí le bród
Buail’gí go mó’far na buillí uilig
Cruthaígí bhur gcumas os comhair slua!
Go gcloisfear an cling,
an clingín deiridh,
Seas an fód is troid!

An tOireachtas is the largest Irish language network in the country. It organises a wide range of cultural, sporting and arts events including the Oireachtas Media Awards (Oscars of the Irish language Media), the Oireachtas Literary Awards (for both established and emerging Irish-medium writers) and the showpiece event, Oireachtas na Samhna in late October, a mixture of traditional song, dance and vocal expression competitions which take place over the course of a week in different locations every year. An tOireachtas also promotes the use of Irish in day-to-day activities from rugby as Gaeilge to comedy clubs and everything in between.
