Nós – Irish Language Magazine Online

I meant to mention Nós a while back on the launch of its first issue.  Nós is an online magazine completely as Gaeilge which just brought out their second issue on Thursday.  Interestingly, the only part of the magazine not in Irish is their description.

nós* is a new contemporary Irish language magazine for the modern age.
From film to fashion, sex to travel, music to technology,
nós* has it all.

Check out all issues of the magazine here and if you’re browsing the second edition (called Eagrán 1 as they started with Eagrán 0), keep an eye out for the review on the John Spillane gig which uses one of my photos.   It’s good to see a high quality online magazine done through Irish aimed at the youth market.  I wonder is there any plans to bring out a paper version of it?

Na Ceapairí Grá at The Roundy

Na Ceapairí Grá

D’fhreastal mé ar an oíche Gaeilge sa Roundy eagraithe ag na daoine ó Peoples Republic of Cork oíche Céadaoin an seachtain seo chaite. Club Dhaon-Phoblacht is ainm ar an oíche cheoil agus caint agus de réir na tuairiscí go léir, bhí an chéad oíche ar fheabhas chomh maith. Thosnaigh Na Ceapairí Grá an oíche seo le ceol traidisiúnta bríomhar. Nach bhfuil an t-ainm acu go hiontach!? N’fheadair cad as a tháinig sé sin! Bhí mé ag caint le mo dhuine a sheinn an gíotar (dhearmadas an t-ainm mar is ghnáth dom!) agus dúirt sé liom nach sheinneann sé leis an ngrúpa seo de ghnáth ach ni féidir a shéanadh gur chur sé go mór leis an ngrúpa.

Tá pictiúr nó dhó eile sa set iomlán ar Flickr. Beidh pictiúirí de John Spillane a sheinn chomh maith á sheoladh anseo agam i rith na seachtaine.
