innteanach dhuibh

Letter to the Adult Learning Project, Scotland's largest centre for 
learning traditional culture.

Ideas and Opportunities for Gaelic development within ALP.

A Chairdean,

Chunnaic mi an litir a chuir sibh do mo bhean an d a thaobh an 
coinneamh innteanach a bhith agaibh an t-seachdainn seo. Gu ni-fortonach 
cha bhith mi ann o chionns gu bheil clas Gidhlig agam an nochd sin agus 
coinneamh "Coimhearsnachd Ghidhlig Dhn Eideann". 

Tha e caran nenach ann an digh nach dh'fhuair mise cuireadh do'n 
coinneamh, o chionns gu bheil Gidhlig agam, ach tha'n t-m agam 
beachdan a sgrobhadh co-dhi. Tha mi ln cinneach gu bheil e 
freagarrach a sgrobhadh thugaibh 'sa Ghidhlig, mura h-eil duine aig a 
bheil Gidhlig (no Albais) ann, cha deanar an gnothaich agaibh ceart!

Aig toiseach tiseachaidh, bu mhath leam ag radh gu bheil mi toilitche 
ri clas Gidhlig fhaicinn aig ALP (Priseact Ionnsachaidh nan Inbheach - 
PNE). Ach, carson nach eil tuilleadh ann? - bhiodh e nas fhearr nan robh 
dh no tr claiseachan ann gus cothrom a thoirt dha na h-oileanach a 
bruidhrinn ri chile an didh na claiseacan agus cothrom thoirt dhaibh 
Gidhlig ionnsachadh. ann am buidheann air fad. Ach, mar a tha e 
cudthromach do dhaoine ri Gidhlig ionnsachadh an didh a' chlas, 
bhithinn-sa gu math denach dad sam bith chuir air digh thaobh 
Gidhlig, agus ar cultur a' bhrosnachadh aig an aon m. 

Tha e soillear gu ler dhomh gu bheil a' Ghidhlig air an iomall aig PNE 
na laithean seo. A bharrachd air direach aon clas Gidhlig, d th'ann? 
Tha cel air feadh an fhidheal gu bheil ceangailtean ann eadar cnan, 
cel, dannsa-ceum, rain, ach cait' a bheil na cothroman aig PNE gus seo 
ionnsachadh? Direach aon latha agus aon clas aig Ceana Caimbeul a 
denamh obair air Gidhlig agus dannsa-ceum agus na ceangailtean 
eatorra. Cite bheil an coir? Tha mi a' gabhail ealla ris gu bheil tri 
sersa re ann a thaobh dannsa ceum. Ire 1, far a bheil duine a dheanamh 
ceumanan srath-sp cmla fonn strath-sp (no ruidhle le ruidhle). Ire 2, 
far a bheil duine ag eiseachd gu cramach ris na ntaichean agus a 
denamh ceumanan ceangailte ris. Is e seo an re as chumanta agus an re 
aig PNE. Ach aig an treasamh re, chualar na faclan Gidhlig os cionn na 
ntaichean agus na casan a denamh cel air an rlar cmhla ri na faclan 
agus am fonn. Se seo am beachd agamsa agus Ceana Caimbeul cuideachd. Mar 
a tha e le dannsa ceum, tha e mar sin le cel an fhidheal cuideachd. Tha 
fios aig na mran fidhealaran d na faclan aig na fonn a bhios iad a 
cluich, is mar sin ann an t-saoghal piobaireachd. Ciamar a bhios piobair 
cinnteach gu bheil e a' cluich fonn aig an astar ceart no le measur 
ceart mura h-eil?

Cuideachd, 's tric gu bheil oileanach aig PNE gam fhoineachd "D an 
eadar-theangachadh air ainm an t-oran seo?" no "Ciamar a chanadh ainm 
air am fonn seo" no "Tha fios agam gu bheil am fonn seo ceangailt ri 
orain Gaidhlig - an innse dhut dhomh barrach mu dheidhinn a 
eachdraidh?". Agus ni mi. Agus is fhiach e e. Ach d mu dheidhinn clas 
mar seo? Sgrobh mi litir an cois a thaobh orain "Mor" a rinn an clas 
fidheal aig PNE ann an 94. 'Se "Mr a' cheannaich" an t-ainm ceart air 
agus bha uidh mr aig na fidhealaran anns an aithisg a sgrobh mi. O 
nach robh barrachd m agam airson sin a dhenamh ris a h-uile fon! (Faic 
Litir 1)

An didh dhomh clas a dheanamh aig Sabhal Mor ann an orain nan Gaidheal, 
bha mi cinnteach gu robh e an ceart m airson clas orain Gidhlig a 
thoiseachadh ann an Dn ideann. Sgrobh mi an litir an cois o chionn 
tri bliadhnaichean (faic litir 2). Tha mi nam runaire An Comunn 
Gidhealach ann an Dn ideann agus bidh ceann-seachdannan Gidhlig 
againn tr no ceithir m gach bliadhna. Thathar an dchas aig an ath-
cheann seachdainn gum bidh clas rain ann, sgrobh mi gu Taigh na 
Gidhlig an t-seachdain seo chaidh mu dheidhinn clas-oidhche rain 
cuideachd. Chaidh An Comunn Gidhealach chuir air cois am Mod as 
tradaiseanta ann an t-saghaol (DiSathairne seo chaidh) agus abair Mod a 
bh'ann! Bha oifigear leasachaidh a' Mhoid ris an Comunn naiseanta air a 
radio an diugh ga moladh gu h-ard. Mar sin, 'se seo an t-m airson guth-
chel a thoiseachadh ann an Dn ideann. Mura h-eil PNE denach gu ler 
ga dheanamh, tha mi ln chinnteach gum bidh Taigh na Gidhlig denach. 
Ach bhithinn bronach nan cuireadh PNE a chul ris, oir tha mi airson 
Gidhlig agus Albais a bhrosnachadh aig PNE. Ma tha Albais a-mhin aig 
PNE agus Gidhlig aig Taigh na Gidhlig, bhitheamaid a fuireach caran 
ann an d saoghal, gach duine ann an cearnag aige fhin. Bhiodh e nas 
fherr Gaidhlig fhaicinn ann an iomadh aiteachan gus a' chnan a 
bhrosnachadh a thuilleadh air na Gaidheal. Gu h-araidh bu mhath leam 
beagan blas Gaidhlig a theagaisg do dhuine aig nach eil Gidhlig gus chi 
iad cho chudthromach a tha i airson dulchas tradaiseanta a thuigsinn. 
Tha mi cinnteach gu bheil sibh ag aontachadh leam, nach bi?

Chithear aig am feis "Celas" cho chudthromach a tha a' chnan agus na 
ceangailtean ann eadar cel, cnan, dannsa ceum. Chualar gu bheil 
"Ceolas" ann an Dun Eideann - D tha sibh-sa denamh mu dheidhinn seo, 
dh'fheumainn fhoighneachd! Rinn mise beagan thaobh seo (faic litir 3) 
ach ged a tha Sgoil Elais na h-Alba gam mholadh gu h-ard, tha mi 
smaoineachadh gu bheil e mar guth anns an dorchadas aig PNE. Carson? D 
mu dheidhinn PNE nan robh e coltach ri Sgoil Eolais na h-Alba ach aig 
claisaichean feasgar? Chan eil an drsda gu cinnteach. Bith na luchd-
cel ag ionnsachadh fonn gun mran thuigsinn a thaobh eachdraich faclan 
no eadhon ruitheam Gidhlig aca. Agus oidhche Luain agus oidhche Ardaoin 
nuar a bhios na luchd-cel a-mach cait a bheil na daoine aig a bheil 
Gidhlig - cha bhith iad ann o chionns gu bheil an clas aca air oidhche 
eadar-dhealaichte! 

'Se baile fior cudthromach a th'ann Dn ideann airson a' Ghaidhlig, Ann 
an tri bliadhnaichean seachad thisich Mod, Feis, Taigh na Gaidhlig, 
Coimhearsnachd Ghidhlig Dhn Eideann. Ron m sin, agus an drsda fhin: 
clasaichean, buidheann, Sgoil Eolais na h-Alba, Roinn Ceilteach, 
coisearan, foghlum tro mheadhann sa chnan agus mran eile. Tha Gidhlig 
ann agus tha i a' fs nas laidire le gach bliadhna. Danamaid cinnteach 
ma-tha ann an saoghal na Gidhlig gu bheil cothrom na Finne aig daoine 
an guth a thogail is an cultur ionnsachadh aig PNE, Gidheal no Gall, 
mnathan is fir, g is sean. Tha mi faireachain gu bheil Albais gu ler 
aig PNE (ach bu mhath leam clas Albais fhaicinn) ach tha mi faireachain 
gu bheil Gidhlig air an iomall aig PNE ged a tha mran uidh aig na 
oileanaich aig PNE anns a' Ghidhlig. Mar eiseamplair, dh'iarr na 
oileanaich ormsa ann an clas Christine Kydd orain Ghidhlig a theagaisg 
agus, ged nach robh Gidhlig idir aca, chrd an t-ran riutha. Bha Fiona 
(Bairn's bash) ag ionnsachadh ran Gidhlig, is, aig an Fheis dh'iarr i 
orm a cuideachadh. Ach cha robh digh agam-sa an uairsin a cuideachadh, 
ged a bha mi gl elach air, 's mar sin, cha d'fhuair ise an cothrom an 
t-oran ionnsachadh! Chan eil sin ceart, bheil?

Mu theireadh thall, bu mhath leam PNE fhaicinn air an Eadar-lon. 
Sgrobh mise corr is 160 duilleagan a thaobh cultur na h-Alba agus bidh 
corr is 160 neach ga leughadh gach latha, a h-uile latha. Corr is 55,000 
leughairean gach bliadhna. Mar sin, chi sibh gu bheil deagh cothrom ann 
dhuibh fhin ar cnan 's ar cultur a' bhrosnachadh 'sa sgaoileadh, is 
bheir mi mo gheallaidh dhuibh, gheibh sibh taic bhuam-sa, oir tha mi air 
seo a' dhenamh fad deich bliadhna, leam fhn, gun chuideachadh!

I have written in Gaelic to show you what someone who is a learner can 
achieve. A native speaker could offer even more. What more proof would 
you require to see that it would be in ALP's interests, as well as 
prospective students, to include more Gaelic classes in the ALP 
cirriculum and to better integrate the Gaelic links with the existing 
classes.

"Ach thig an uair is thig an t-m 'son an uabhal as irde air a' 
chraoibh a bhuain"
