Fàilte! Welcome! Gàidhlig gu brath!


Sgoil-Earraich Nàiseanta 2013 Waulking songGun teid a' Ghàidhlig gu math air feadh Astràilia troimh obair a' Chomuinn Ghàidhlig Astràilia.

Tha Comunn Gàidhlig Astràilia na bhuidheann coimhearsnachd neo-phrothaideach a tha a' misneachadh cànan is cultar nan Gaidheal ann an Astràilia. Bhiodh sinn toilichte a bhith a' cluinntinn bho dhuine sam bith le ùidh anns na nithean sin.

Tha a' bhallrachd air a dèanamh an-àirde an dà chuid de fhileantaich agus de luchd-ionnsachaidh. Tha buill againn à feadh Astràilia agus thall thairis.

Tha sinn a' foillseachadh an ràitheachan An Teachdaire Gaidhealach a tha air a chur a-mach gu na buill uile. Bidh sinn a' cur co-chruinnichean is tachartasan cultarail is clasaichean air dòigh bho àm gu àm.

Annual Celtic Australia Day Festival

What would have been the 27th Annual Celtic Australia Day Festival will not be happening on the 26th January. CGA has been involved in some role in most of these festivals. Last year the event was moved by North Sydney Council to St. Leonards Park in place of a multicultural BBQ at the old venue of Bradfield Park. Unfortunately, the Celtic Festival proved not to be commercially at the new venue. Negotiations with North Sydney Council for the Celtic participants to join with the multicultural BBQ broke down and a Celtic event will not happen this year. The Celtic Council is hopeful of the Festival returning in 2019. See their site for contacts for further details http://www.celticcouncil.org.au/cca2.htm.


Seallagain: Gaelic Grammar

CGA has been approached by Catriona Parsons of Nova Scotia with a link to a new course that she has developed with Otago University in Dunedin, NZ. The course text and sound files have been posted by the University here: http://hdl.handle.net/10523/7732. Note, you’ll need to scroll down past the metadata to find the clickable links. Catriona tested the course at her 2016 and 2017 Summer Schools at Otago.

Cartiona also tells us that the NZ Gaelic Society, which folded at Otago in 2006 has been revived as the Otago Gaelic Society. We will get in touch at the beginning of term and try to link the society with other Gaels in NZ.
