An bhfuil Bród agat?

Tonight while visiting the parents I stumbled upon Bernard Dunne’s Bród Club on RTE One. The was random in itself as my parents were in Lisvernane, Co. Tipperary who won TG4’s G-Team last Friday (aired Sunday on TG4) at the weekend and had been talking about the language. While I am far from fluent in Gaeilge Bródclub and the conversation on G-Team has managed to get me back thinking about how I use the cupla focal myself.

I mainly use it in my own head or when alone! Its not that I am embarrassed or neirbhiseach, but I simple don’t use it in public. But that is going to change!

I have signed up to Bród Club and I have pledged to use my cúpla focail. The campaign is to encourage everyone to use their cupla focail and they hope to get 100,00 people signed up!

I’ve dug out the Foclóir Póca and the Buntas Cainte to remind me of the words I do know and using the Bród Club website to find ways of using it with the weekly ask!

So why not sign up? Follow on Twitter, and like on Facebook?

Show bród in your language! Sign up and have spraoi le gaeilge!
