Seachtain Siúlóid agus Caidreacht
There is an old saying in Irish that the walker is a storyteller…“Bíonn an siúlach scéalach”-! Join us in celebrating Seachtain na Gaeilge by walking and talking to one another every day for a week. The Form for completion will be posted here on Monday morning ! Ideally fill it daily but if you forget you can do so the following day.
This year, to celebrate “Seachtain na Gaeilge” both of our Committees: Coiste na Gaeilge and Our Health & Well-Being Committee hope that everyone in the Community will join us in a week of walking. Its geared for everyone young and old, those with IT skills and those without. We will clock up the hours walked each day, share a daily graph at the end of each day to show how many minutes/hours walking we have done in our Community!
We also ask you to keep within the guidelines.
Walk for 10 minutes, 15 mins up to an hour-whatever suits..once it’s within the 5 km limit. If you meet anyone just greet them as Gaeilge and we will share a greeting for each day!
We are asking as many people as possible to walk a little bit every day from Monday 15th March to Sunday 22nd March and this will include St Patrick’s Day. Ideally, we would like everyone involved and we are especially anxious to spread the message to our friends and neighbors that do not have access to Social Media.
Can everyone speak with their family and friends who do not have access to a computer/do not have the skills to input data on line. We have volunteers listed below who will input the data for anyone who is unable to do so. Just ring or text the nominated volunteers below and they will input your data each day. They are looking forward to hearing from you every day. If you can sign off with Slán or Go raibh maith agat.
Contact numbers for our Volunteers who will take daily calls for the week and input on our web site: So if you walk 10 minutes or over an hour on any given day, fill up the form on the web site, and if you cannot do so ring any of our contacts below with the amount of time walked on that day. If you are from Ballymac and living outside the Parish join us ! Especailly St Patricks Day!
Go raibh míle maith agaibh!
