Launch of Ár dTéarmaí Féin and Téarmaíocht Ghaeilge na hAthbheochana 3 October 2014 – Posted in: Uncategorised

Thursday the 2nd of October 2014 was quite an historic night in that not one but two important books on terminology in the Irish language were launched. Around a hundred people gathered in the Great

Hall in Foras na Gaeilge on Merrion Square to hear Prof. Ruairí Ó hUiginn, Professor of Modern Irish at the National University, Maynooth, speak about the two books and officially launch them.
The two books were, of course, Ár dTéarmaí Féin by Fidelma Ní Ghallchobhair, former Chief Terminologist in Foras na Gaelge with the Coiste Téarmaíochta (Terminology Committee) and Téarmaíocht Ghaeilge na hAthbheochana by  Conchúr Mag Eacháin who conducted post-doctoral research in the National University of Ireland, Dublin and is now working with Fiontar in DCU. Irish academic life and international terminology experts from countries such as Portugal, Denmark etc were in attendance as were all those interested in words – including many of Irelands foremost authors.
