Ag Fíorú Na Ceathrún Gaeltachta

“Ag fiorú [sic] na ceathrún gaeltachta”/”Delivering on the Gaeltacht quarter”. Laochra Loch Lao [Belfast Lough Warriors] is a Gaelic games club operating through Irish. The club’s emblem is the blackbird, from the ninth-century poem: “Int én bec/ro léic feit/do rinn guip/glanbuidi:/fo-ceird faíd/ós Loch Laíg,/lon do chraíb/charnbuidi.” “The little bird/that whistled shrill/from the nib of/its yellow bill/a note let go/o’er Belfast Lough/a blackbird from/a yellow whin” (Ciaran Carson’s translation). With support from Forbairt Feirste.
