Cumann Buan-Choimeádta na Gaeilge: Tús an Athréimnithe

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

A total re-evaluation of Cumann Buan-Choimeádta na Gaeilge (SPIL – The Society for the Preservation of the Irish Language), which laid the foundations for the 20th century language Revival. Its influence on the general public and in particular on the state system is examined.

Few organisations have been as misunderstood as SPIL but with his examination and dispassionate analysis of previously unused sources Professor Ó Murchú comes to a radically new position. This volume is particularly well suited to the Lúb ar Phár series as it corrects a widely-held view that was totally at odds with the facts.

Máirtín Ó Murchú is Senior Professor of Irish in the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies, former Director of the School of Celtic Studies there, and a former Professor of Irish at Trinity College Dublin.

Is saothar cuimsitheach athghabhála atá anseo ar dhream beag dílis a lig an stair i ndearmad. Má tá sé conspóideach ar uairibh, is amhlaidh a chuireann sé sin lena shuimiúlacht. *Seán Ó Loingsigh, Feasta – Aibreán 2002* Is saothar é seo a cheartaíonn an lúb ar lár a fágadh de bharr an tsimplithe a deineadh sa ‘stair fhada bhisiúil a bhí ag gluaiseacht na Gaeilge sular bunaíodh Conradh na Gaeilge in aon chor’, mar a deir an tOllamh Ó Murchú agus é ag cur na hearráide ar ár súile dúinn. Is í aidhm an údair an fhaillí agus an míbhreithiúnas a chur ina gceart. Léiríonn sé na réamhchonraitheoirí a bheith scuabtha amach as an stair, gur áitíodh easpa éifeachta a bheith ag baint leo, ná rabhadar tionsclach, gur fíorbheagán Gaeilge a bhí acu, agus mar sin narbh fhiú iad a chur san áireamh. ….Is mithid an bhearna a fágadh ar lár i scéal athbheochan na Gaeilge a líonadh. Táimid faoi chomaoin Mháirtín Uí Mhurchú as san a dhéanamh. Ní searbh a bhíonnn an fhírinne i gcásanna mar seo, ach milis. Is maith is fiú d’éinne go bhfuil baint aige/aici le teagasc/foghlaim na Gaeilge, lena hathréimniú, nó gurb é a m(h)isean nualitríocht a sholáthar inti, is maith is fiú dóibh an saothar so a léamh. *Pádraig Ó Cíobháin, Foinse – 20/01/2002*
