Ócáid phoiblí: Speak Irish on Facebook Day

An mbeidh foireann margaíochta sásta le 36,942 daoine ag freastail ar ócáid phoiblí ar an gréasán meáin sóisialta Facebook?
Bhuel, sin an méid cuairteoirí atá ag ‘Speak Irish on Facebook Day’, tosaíodh ar an gréasán meáin sóisialta sin ag beirt déagóirí ógá ó Béal Feirste (as tuaisceart an chathair, fósta). Bhunaigh Ruairí Ó hÉigeartaigh agus Dónal de Brún é i Lúnasa seo chaite. Inniu, deirtear ag 36,942 daoine go mbeidh siad ag freastail ar an ócáid phoiblí seo (agus tá go leor am – coicís – fágtha do daoine eile). Seo é an dáta don dialann ‘s agaibhse: 20ú Mí na Samhna (nó déan cuardach ar an leathanach é féin ar Facebook).
Agus ná bí ag cuardach ar achainigh airgead, ach oiread. Níl ann ach an feachtas seo chun an teanga a chuir chun chinn (ach, mar is gnáth le Facebook, b’fheidir, is tusa an táirge).

An iad seo todhchaí an eacnamaíocht eolais?

Breise/Update

Tosaíodh ‘Speak Irish on Facebook Day’  le 40,459 daoine ag freastail ar an ócáid phoiblí (ag 00.00 inniu). Ná déan dearmad!

If needed, this can be roughly translated to English (or Welsh) here.

    Ni maith liom Facebook. (cad e an Ghaeilge no an Uladh Scots ar FB?).

    A Jhohn, a chara, an bhfuil to ag caitheamh do chuid saoirse go leir ar FB?
    An gceappann tu go sabhailfidh FB ar dteanga duchais?

  • Drumlins Rock

    Ar an drochuair, beidh mé gnóthach ar an 20 Samhain John, ag dul go dtí go Slugger O’Toole neamh-chomhdháil i Belshaft b’fhéidir, agus níochán mo chuid gruaige an oíche sin, ach tá mé cinnte go mbeidh sé d’fhéadfadh a crack, go mbeadh sé indéanta go in aghaidh an lae i Ultais ró N’fheadar, cé buille faoi thuairim mé bhainistiú fiú in aghaidh an lae i mBéarla cuí a bheadh le baint amach is mó ar fad.

  • John Ó Néill

    Is é Facebook an t-ainm i gach teanga (ag an am cheanna, tugtar ‘Bakebook’ air le na wags i mBéal Feirste). Ní bhainim morán úsaid as ach le mo chlann.

    Ní chreidim go tsábháiltear Facebook an teanga (nó aon rud eile) – ach, b’fheidir, léirsíonn sé go bhfuil sé ábartha go fóill.

  • John Ó Néill

    Is trua sin (tá áthas orm go bhfuil gruaige fágtha agat).

  • Alan Maskey

    Ta FB speisuil go loer de thaobh bheith ag staideir an phobail. Ach ta mo dhothain de sin agam. Cad e an craic faoi Twitter. Is rud fior amaideach e, imth ( mo thuairim)

  • John Ó Néill

    Tá mé ag fánacht ar Twitter 2.0 – faoi láthair, is meáin nuacht é, mar dhea.

  • HeinzGuderian

    Good one………next time you get through to a call centre in Bombay,insist on speaking Oirish……….:-)

  • Alan Maskey

    Heinz: Great past, man,. This bog Oirish with their bog Oirish accents. Not many people in Bombay speak Oirish. Too right.

    Actually, old boy, they call the palce Mumbai and English would be their second language; most would speak more than two languages. They say you should not laugh at someone with an accent as they probably speak more languages than you. Most likely, you only speak English, and not even at native level. Anyone posting here speaks more languages than you.

    B’fheidir go bhfuil buntaiste i dTwitter mar bhead orainn coimead ar mbeil ina dtost.

  • sdelaneys

    ::::::::::::
    Drumlins Rock: Maith thu. Ar fheabhas.
    tr: Well done. Great. If you are a good Orangeman, you are taking the right road, even if only to stick it up “our mutual friends”.
    Senator Shane Ross, a Southern Anglican Leinster House senator, did this is a great move, calling himself An Seanadoir Sean de Rossa.
    Our Provo friends like to spout Irish and say the Rosary over graves for their own point scoring reasons.

  • HeinzGuderian

    Reminds me of the Shinners at the European Commision,insisting on speaking Oirish……………..’soory,I didn’t understand any of that gutteral,grunt and groan’ ?? 🙂

  • Wilde Rover

    Alan Maskey,

    “Ni maith liom Facebook.”

    Mise freisin. Is ait an rud é.

  • POTM

    Níl aon tóin tinn mar do thóin tinn féin

  • Alan Maskey

    Ach nil FM chomh ait le daoine, go more mhor le mo chara, Heinz Guderian, an oinseach is oinsi ar fuid n hEireann:)

  • Aaron

    What’s the point in writing this if don’t you stick a link to the Facebook event?

  • “this can be roughly translated to English (or Welsh)”

    The Google translator seems to do quite a good job.

  • Alan Maskey

    evin et al: Mine reads more as less as follows:
    But FM is not as odd as people, especially my friend Hanzg, the eejit who is the most eeejity in all of Ireland.

    As I am in Englande now, moving on London, like Boadicia before me (aided by one of my ancestors, Alan Dubh, Dorcha mar an Diabhal Maskey), two relevant points
    1. This is based on a North of England saying: There’s nowt as odd as people.
    2. Our Divine and Sovereign Majesty, QE2 (better than the English cricket team, 80+ not out), was once a little girl, back in the 1930s when Monster was just beginning his dotage. She wrote something as follows to one of her aunts
    Dear aunt Mary: When I grow up, I want to live in a big house, with lots of dogs and horses.
    Yours Elizabeth.

    And that is exactly what she did. As our beloved Prince Philip said: she loves everything that eats hay and farts.
    You will notice she did not mention people.
    Still, if Mondster addtressed her concerning the suffering of the people of Ardoyne, I am sure she would embrace him and offer to give back her medals.
    ps: Does the Queren have any medals?
    pps: Apaprently Quen Elizabeth 1 was a student of the Irish language.

  • John Ó Néill

    Aaron, I assume, if you use Facebook, you won’t have much difficulty typing ‘Speak Irish on Facebook Day” into the search window. Unless they have changed it, if you aren’t a member you will only get closed doors unless you join, so a direct link is pointless. I’m not recruiting new members for Facebook.

  • aaron

    I typed it in but found nothing. No point sharing something if it’s invisible/inaccessible… you could be making it all up.

  • Drumlins Rock

    these google translate things are great fun, lol

  • John Ó Néill

    Well, Aaron – this is the direct link when I have Facebook open.
    If you’d rather parse the url yourself:
    http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/event.php?eid=134137063296469

    At the moment 37,682 people are sharing the delusion with me that this event exists. Go figure.

  • Alan, I thought the saying is “There’s nowt as queer as folk”.

  • lamhdearg

    is there no irish word for face. or book

  • lamhdearg

    brand name i know, taking the piss.

  • Alan Maskey

    John Ó Néill’s of6 November 2010 at 4:38 pm answered it

  • lamhdearg

    I will have to take your word for that Alan, i like MOST other people in ulster cannot speak/read irish. Enjoy.

  • JR

    leabharaghaidhe?

  • JR

    there is but you must remember when two nouns come together to put the second into the genative.

    You know by the way that your name should be spelt Lámhdhearg. The dh gives the dearg a y sound. It is because lámh is feminine.
