Gaelscoil hosts Daidí na Nollaig event in Roscommon Library

Gaelscoil De hÍde, Ros Comáin, were delighted to recently host their ‘Daidí na Nollaig’ Irish language Christmas Event, in association with Roscommon Library. It was fantastic to welcome Daidí na Nollaig to Roscommon, and the children were thrilled to meet and share a ‘cupla focal’ with him and all his wonderful Gaelscoil De hÍde student helpers on the day!

Ruairí, the Roscommon Library Manager, and all the fantastic staff, were just brilliant on the day and it is wonderful to have such a great library right on our doorstep. Fierce Fun Faces and their staff did a brilliant job and all the kids loved their balloons and face paints.

Thanks to all the local businesses that sponsored raffle prizes: Comfy Café, Tesco, Total Health Pharmacy, Roscommon Sports Store, ETL, Tommy Kelly Electrical, SuperValu, and Jorena Health &  Gift Shop in Roscommon. Don’t forget to #shoplocal from wonderful local businesses such as these this year!

It’s wonderful to see that the Irish language is still a vibrant and living part of our society, with up to 200 people taking part on the day. The Gaelscoil De hÍde would like to thank all who helped out on the day! Nollaig Shona Duit!
