Bronntanas na Teanga - Give the Gift of Gaeilge


Making out your Christmas List? Why not give the gift of Gaeilge to your family & friends this Christmas? Did you know that there are many quality Irish Language toys, books and gifts available on the market? From the award winning Irish speaking teddy bear Bábóg Baby to Scrabble to customised hoodies there’s such a range to choose from.

Whether you wish to help someone use and improve their Irish or want to give them a fun way to get practicing for those precious points in their Oral. Why not get them a voucher for a summer course in one of Mayo’s many summer colleges, check out our list of Mayo Irish colleges who provide vouchers - Dearbhán le haghaidh Coláistí Samhraidh…they’ll be learning without even realising it. 

Even better again, support your local Mayo businesses and choose from the vast range of beautifully illustrated books from Claremorris publisher Cló Mhaigh Eo or get your handcrafted bilingual Christmas cards from Ballina company Wild Ideas. Or what about one of the wonderful publications available from Siopa na Seanscoile i gCeathrú Thaidhg or the newly published Achill Placenames CDrom with over 1,600 placenames!  

Gnó Mhaigh Eo and Oifig na Gaeilge Mhaigh Eo are working in partnership with the local Mayo shops in this “Bronntanas na Teanga - Give the gift of Gaeilge” campaign. Look out for the Bronntanas na Teanga posters in participating stores.
