Win the Gift of Gaeilge at Mayo’s Seachtain na Gaeilge

Gnó Mhaigh Eo and Oifig Gaeilge Mhaigh Eo are celebrating Seachtain na Gaeilge 2013 with a Bronntanas na Gaeilge (Give the Gift of Gaeilge) campaign. A Toy, book or gift will be available to win each day for the duration of Seachtain na Gaeilge (4-17th March) on the Gaeilge Mhaigh Eo and Gnó Mhaigh Eo Facebook pages and on Twitter as well as spotprizes at some of the Seachtain na Gaeilge events.

Many of us have seen Bábóg Baby and Scrabble through Irish but did you know that there are many Irish language products that are made in Mayo? It was two Mayo publishers that published two of the best selling Irish language books in the last year. The publishing company Evertype based outside Westport recently published an Irish version of the Hobbit, the English version of the book celebrated it’s 75th year last year.  “An Hobad” features the original pictures and maps by J.R. Tolkien. Cló Mhaigh Eo have also added to their series of graphic novels with “An Béal Bocht” one of the most popular books in Irish based on the original novel by Flann O’ Brien/Myles na gCopaleen.

Between t-shirts from Deir Sé and T-Rex, greeting cards from Wild Ideas, Marian Heneghan and Cathal Can Sign, lovely prints from I Love Mayo and Mindful Productivity it is possible to support both the Irish language and Mayo businesses at the same time.

Make sure to keep an eye out on the Facebook page and Twitter feed from the 4th March  to the 17th March, or come along to one or two Irish events for Seachtain na Gaeilge in Mayo to win your gift. A full list of the events happening across Mayo to celebrate Seachtain na Gaeilge is available on
