An Gaeilgóir thú, nó an bhfuil tú, nó do ghrúpa / do rang scoile ag foghlaim na Gaeilge? Tá ár gcuid ceardlanna ar fáil trí mheán na Gaeilge. Mar shampla:
- Beoga (clár íoga agus sláinte meabhrach do dhaoine óga).
- Rinne Comhcheol ceardlanna Gaeilge agus 'Boomwhackers' do pháistí scoile i leabharlanna le linn Seachtain na Gaeillge 2020.
- Rinneamar cámpaí samhraidh (Gaeilge, ceol, íoga, dearadh digiteach) i 2018 agus 2019 sa 'Cois Locha Wellbeing Hub' agus le CDP na Rosann.
- D'obair muid le Rannóg na Gaeilge (Co. Co. Dhun na nGall) ar Tumchonaí a rinne siad i 2019 .
Amharc ar an mbileog eolais, agus amharc thart ar an tsuíomh, agus más rud é go bhfuil tú ag iarraidh ceardlann ar leith a dhéanamh i nGaeilge, bí i dteagmháil.

Comhcheol is delighted to be coordinating for First Fortnight on a regional basis for the 2021 festival. This comes on the heels of running 4 successful events in January 2020 and having brought the festival to Co. Donegal for the first time in 2019.
2020 highlights included John Connors' hard-hitting drama piece, Ireland's Call, which featured a remarkably open and interactive post-show discussion. A specially commissioned school's 'Beoga Wellbeing Stage Show' was also staged in the Balor, Ballybofey on Jan 9th. In the west of the county, a Healthy Ireland workshop ran in Gweedore library on Jan 8th and a film screening of 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' on the bigscreen in the Amharclann on the 4th of Jan. MORE FF2020 DETAILS HERE . Our 2019 program included Kevin McAleer and Bosco.
The third annual Errigal Retreat at Errigal Hostel in Dunlewey was a great success with fabulous feedback coming in. As well as the gentle, restorative and accessible yoga, and bliss relaxations, this year's offering included 2 different wellbeing workshops, a Creative Wellbeing Workshop, which was a playful ice-breaker and also a Morning Pages, habit-hacking workshop that gave some roadmaps towards personal transformation. Our veggie food also got lots of praise, and although storm Denis kept us off Errigal Mountain, you can bet we will conquer that summit again! Keep an eye on www.donegalyogaretreats.com for the next offering.
