Oireachtas na Cruinne 2018 - Gaeilge Terminology
As Oireachtas Rince na hÉireann is drawing near, we hope you are enjoying preparing your numbers, set dances and céilí dances “as Gaeilge” for Bliain na Gaeilge.
The idea is that you learn and be able to say your competitor number and set dance, and as you will not be aware of your number until the day of your competition, we have a list of numbers from 1 – 400 to help. But to make it easier for those of you who have never learnt Irish before, we suggest that if you know the numbers from 1 – 10 or 0 – 9 you can say your number as three individual numbers, as follows:
Number 235 is actually Dhá Céad ‘s a Tríocha Cúig, (Two Hundred and Thiry Five), but you can say: A Dó, A Trí, A Cúig ( Two, Three, Five) if you prefer.
This is not meant to be stressful, but we hope that you are enjoying the opportunity.
The numbers 0 - 10 and 101 – 400, Set dances and Céilí Dances are available on the CLRG web site with phonetics, and can be downloaded below.
Na hUimhreacha 0-10 - Numbers 0-10 as Gaeilge

Go n’éirí libh.
