Dúshlán ár nDúchais

We have beautiful Irish here on Toraigh and the aim of ‘Dúshlán ár nDúchais’ is to celebrate and promote it.  With that in mind, there is a small competition in the College every week in which students bring in phrases, words or riddles native to Toraigh and the teachers (blow-ins all) have to come up with the correct meaning before the day ends. If the teachers do not succeed, they have to give the students €5. Some of the students are doing really well and have made a nice few quid!

Both teachers and students are  enjoying the competition and learning together as well.

Some of the phrases, words and riddles may be seen below:
