T√° gr√ļpa i gceantar D√≠lseachta i mB√©al Feirste ag smaoineamh ar ghr√ļpa tuismitheoir√≠ agus p√°ist√≠ Gaeilge a thos√ļ amach anseo.

An Irish language group in East Belfast is looking at the possibilities of setting up a parent and child group in the area. If all goes well they may look at starting a na√≠scoil (Irish language nursery school) or even a bunscoil (primary school) in the future.
Gr√ļpa Gaeilge Misean Bh√©al Feirste Thoir stress however that developments are at a very early stage and that there is no plan to open a na√≠scoil in the near future. Even so, the fact that this is being discussed in a Loyalist area is significant in itself.
¬†Gaelsc√©al also reports on the difficulties faced by a new school in a mainly nationalist area in Down, Gaelscoil na mBeann. The school caters for children in four parishes in the area and apparently there was concern in GAA circles that attendance could affect which clubs the pupils were eligible to play for.
Parochialism, in its literal sense, also played a role as some parents were reluctant to break the tradition of sending their children to the local Catholic parish school.
¬†Meanwhile, Sixth Class students from a Gaelscoil in Dublin are being taught in a pub due to storm damage to the roof of their prefab class. Yes, in a pub.
