Written by riarthoir. Posted in Latest News, Uncategorized



St. Patrick’s Day Community Competition



If your town/community is planning a St. Patrick’s Day parade for 2015, this is your chance to win €1,000 for your group or school! All you have to do is organise a group to come together and promote An Ghaeilge during the parade! You could do this by:

  • Having ‘An Ghaeilge’ as the theme of the parade
  • Using music through Irish in the demonstrations
  • Run a competition for the best Irish-themed float/personality of the parade
  • If somebody is presenting the parade, make sure the commentating is as Gaeilge or bilingual
  • Organise voluntary street ambassadors (Transition year students, for example) to speak Irish to the crowd and to share support materials and phrases sheets etc, with the crowd
  • Take pictures/videos to document the day and to submit with the report form after the festival

To register for this competition, all you have to do is fill in an application form and sent it to the Seachtain na Gaeilge offices by Friday the 27th of February 2015. You can download the application form at snag.ie at the above link (Comórtais)

**It is important that all participants are agreed to promote an Ghaeilge during the parade. In partnership with the parade committee, organise a parade of which an Ghaeilge is a central element.


After the Festival

*Submit a report on the parade by Friday 27th of March 2015 to be in with a chance of winning – a completed report form along with any media gathered from the day (news articles, pictures, videos, etc)

You can download the report form on snag.ie.
