Gaelscéal

Rud beag eile, a chairde… níl a fhios agam ar chuala sibh cheana féin, ach is dócha go mbeidh an t-aon nuachtán amháin i nGaeilge, Gaelscéal, as cló le gairid. Chaill an nuachtán a chuid maoiniú agus deirtear nach bhfuil daoine go leor an nuachtán a cheannach lena sprioc airgid a bhaint amach… dá bharr sin, ní bheith sé ar fáil níos mó i ndiaidh mí Mhárta. Is drochscéal é seo, scéal brónach, mar ní foilseofear aon paipear nuachtán trí mheán na Gaeilge anois, agus cé go bhfuil achmhannaí éagsúla ar fail ar an idirlíon i nGaeilge, tá rud níos… suntasaí faoi choip chrua de nuachtán trí mheán na Gaeilge a bheith sa siopa nó ar fáil ar an tsráid, nach bhfuil? Feictear domh, áfach, nach bhfuil mórán le déanamh fá láthair chun é a chur ar fáil arís, mar ní cheannaítear nuachtáin chrua chomh minic agus a bhíodh i gcoitinne sa lá atá inniu ann. Tá muid uilig ag bogadh róghasta!

Ádh mór oraibh,

One more little thing, folks… I don’t know if you’ve heard about this already, but Gaelscéal, the sole newspaper that’s published in Irish will cease to be in print shortly. The newspaper lost its funding and it’s said that people just aren’t buying enough of the newspaper to meet its financial quota… thus, it won’t be available any more after March. This is a very sad thing indeed, because no newspaper will be published in the medium of Irish now, and even though some news resources are available on the internet, there’s something a lot more noticeable about having a hard copy newspaper available in a shop or on the street, isn’t there? As I see it, however, there really isn’t much to be done about it at the moment because newspapers are just not bought as often as they used to be these days. We’re all moving too fast!

Here’s the story on Gaelscéal’s website: http://www.gaelsceal.ie/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2008:deireadh-ag-teacht-le-gaelsceal&catid=11:tuairimi&Itemid=298

All the best,

Amanda
