Notes from the CCÉ Ottawa Chair, November – December 2014

In November there was a Lá Gaeilge Irish Language weekend organized by Caint is Comhrá, under the auspices of the Ottawa Branch of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann, with many people attending the language sessions.

Also, I have arranged to have a classroom available at Ottawa University on Wednesday evenings, for CCÉ Irish language learners, starting in January 2015 (details will soon be available on the 
CCÉ website). 

Tomás Ó Murchú, will be teaching the TEG preparation course for the students preparing to write the B2 level Irish proficiency test in April 2015. Some of the students that have indicated interest in these sessions are Bridget Guglich, Joan O’Donohue, Margaret Moriarty, and Patricia Willoughby. Hopefully, many others would decide to attend these classes.

In October I attended the Ottawa Gaels AGM. The current Chair of the Ottawa Gaels, Vanessa McLean, and myself have agreed to work closely together for the promotion of our respective activities. On another note, the Gaels have done a terrific job in doing two things: fund raising and getting very young children involved in the Gaelic football. To raise funds, they have run golf tournaments and a Pig Roast, and they are running Gaelic football workshops as an after school program in certain schools.

Bought and sent a flower arrangement to Mary O’Donnell on behalf of CCÉ in honour of the years of service that her husband, Ruadhraí, gave to the branch. 

Respectfully submitted, Cathaoirleach
