Na Leabhar as agus faoin Gaeilge is Fearr le Fáil Faoi Láthair (… dar liom)

Is é an leabhar “Motherfóclóir: Dispatches from a Not So Dead Language” an céad leabhar ar ár liosta. Tosnóidh mé le sin mar is leabhar deas greanmhar é, níl sé ró–dháiríre agus tá sé trí Béarla faoin Gaeilge, mar sin bheadh sé an oirúineach do thosaitheoirí. Ritheann an leabhar sin trí na focail is tábhachtaí […]

Tá sí anseo

Oonagh Ní Mhuirí: Príomheagrathóir  A chairde Gaeil, Faoi dheireadh thiar thall táim ar muin na muice an t-iris seo a roinnt libh!

Obair sa Bhaile: Réiteach don todhchaí?

In am an ghátair, tagaimid le chéile chun réiteach d’ár bhfadhbanna a aimsiú. Feictear seo leis an víreas corónach; tá vacsaín againn lú de bhliain amháin ón gcéad dhianghlasáil. Cé nach mbaineann mórán torthaí dearfacha leis an bpaindéimeach, is suntasach an rud é go bhfuil laghdú ar na sceitheadh carbóin san atmaisféar. Le tabhairt isteach […]

Aicne fásta: Cén fáth go dtagann goiríní orm fós i rith mo fichidí?

Le Aoife Ní Chrualaoich   Is cosúil go bhfulaingíonn an formhór le haicne mar dhéagóirí agus gan aon cheist ná dabht níl an saol éasca ag daoine sna déaga. É sin ráite, ní raibh súil ar bith agam leis na deacrachtaí a bheadh agam le mo chraiceann mar mhac léinn i mo fichidí. Ní hamháin […]

It’s time we called a truce on the war on drugs

Orla Leahy writes for Motley as part of a series on why those who are drug addicts should be treated as patients, not criminals. How can Ireland learn from our Mediterranean neighbours? Reading David Sheff’s novel, Beautiful Boy, opened my eyes to the reality of drug addiction. As a society, many of us have ill-conceived […]
