Seó Bóthair Roadshow 2022/2023

 SB Claraigh Anseo

Registration for the 22/23 academic year is now open. Click here to register. 

What is the Seó Bóthair roadshow?

Aiseolas SB BéarlaThe Seó Bóthair is an interactive workshop that encourages students to use critical thinking to examine their opinions about the Irish language.

We discuss with the students where they can use Irish, inform them about their language rights, and give out plenty of prizes too.

More than 240 Seó Bóthair workshops were organised last year, and we are constantly developing the workshop to give the students the best experience possible.

Who is it for?                                                            

The workshop is aimed at Transition Year students. The workshop is suitable for every type of school - Gaelcholáistí, English-language schools, within or outside of the Gaeltacht. There is no need to worry about the standard of Irish that the students have, the workshop can be run bilingually or through Irish only.

A Seó Bóthair workshop can be run with up to 50 students at one time. Therefore, sometimes more than one workshop is needed - we run workshops between 09:00 - 10:30, 11:00 - 12:30, and 14:00 - 15:30 usually, depending on lunch times and school hours.

What is the aim of the Road Show?

The aim of the workshop is to empower and encourage students to use Irish more often. We inform students about the advantages and opportunities that the Irish language provides, the growth and movement of the Irish language, and the various ongoing Irish language campaigns.

How much does it cost?

The price for one workshop is €100/£90,  €150/£140 for two workshops, and €200/£180 for three workshops. This price covers the costs of the Seó Bóthair, such as travel, equipment, etc. A 20% discount is available to those who register before September 23.

What is discussed as part of the workshop?

  • Facts and statistics about Irish (opportunity to win spot prizes) Seo 3 2021
  • Employment opportunities & third-level courses with Irish
  • Opportunities for use: where to start, services & language rights
  • Irish online: social media & what is available in Irish
  • Irish at home: Irish in your area & and in the future
  • Irish at school: the importance of Irish as a school subject
  • The work of Conradh na Gaeilge and the various Irish campaigns that you can take part in: SnaG / Gaeilge24 / An Fáinne / #Dúshlán etc.
  • Mythbusting: 10 myths about Irish (a package of 10 lessons will be left with the teacher)
  • Raidió Rí-Rá and CEOL (another opportunity to win prizes)

Theme of the workshop: An Ghaeilge i do Thodhchaí 

There are many jobs with the Irish language available in Ireland and in Europe in recent years. We want to share information about these jobs and the third-level courses that will be of great benefit to those who wish to work through Irish in the future.

We also hope to inspire the students as to the other advantages related to Irish before they continue onto the next stage of their lives.

What is Gluaiseacht?

The Seó Bóthair is part of the Gluaiseacht campaign. The aim of the campaign is to encourage young people to use their Irish after they leave school. We illustrate to them the different ways that Irish can be used outside of the classroom, be that in their future career, in their locality, within their family or simply in their daily life.
