Gaeilge i ngach áit!

Haigh gach duine,

Bhí na páistí i rang a cúig ag caint liom i rith na seachtaine faoi ‘Dia dhuit / dia duit agus dia dhaoibh / dia daoibh. Chonaiceamar na focail sin i mBéal Beo agus i leabhair eile agus bhí na focail scríofa difriúil. Chuir na páistí ceisteanna orm, ‘Cén fath go bhfuil na focail sin difriúil?’ Bhí mé ag múineadh na páistí go bhfuil Gaeilge scríofa agus labhartha difriúil ar fud na hÉireann. Tá sé bunaithe ar cén áit ina bhfuil tú i do chónaí agus tá ‘dialect’ difriúil i ngach gContae freisin. Bhí mé ag caint leis na páistí agus tuigeann siad anois! Tá Gaeilge labhartha agus scríofa difriúil ar fud na tíre! An rud is tábhachtaí is mó ná níl aon Contae nó duine as Contae eile mícheart. Tá Gaeilge difriúil ar fud na hÉireann agus sin é!

*The children in fifth class were talking to me during the week about Dia dhuit / dia duit agus dia dhaoibh / dia daoibh. We saw the words in our Irish book and other books but they were written differently. The children asked me the question, ‘Why are the words different?’ I taught the children that Irish can be written and spoken differently around Ireland. It all depends on what place you live in and each area has a different dialect. I was talking to the children and they understand a little more now! Irish is spoken and written differently around the country. (Yet, this only applies to SOME words). The most important thing is that no county or person from a different county is wrong. Irish is different throughout Ireland and that’s that! If you would like to find out more on how Irish is pronounced differently around Ireland take a look at this website that gives access to any word and how it is spoken in every province! http://www.teanglann.ie/en/fuaim
