Seolfaidh an Fíor-Oirmhinneach Michael Burrows, Easpag Chaisil, Fhearna agus Osraí, agus an Fíor-Oirmhinneach Robert Paterson, Easpag Sodor agus Mhanainn, i bpáirt le chéile an dlúthdhiosca is an leabhar agus labhróidh an tEaspag Paterson faoin tslí ina bhfuil Gaelg Mhanainn á shníomh isteach san adhradh ar Oileán Mhanainn.

D’fháiltigh an tEaspag Michael Burrows, Éarlamh Chumann Gaelach na hEaglaise, roimh an tionscnamh agus dúirt sé:  

“Cuireann an tionscnamh is déanaí seo de chuid Chumann Gaelach  na hEaglaise ríméad orm agus is ábhar áthais ar leith  é go bhfuil an seoladh seo ag tarlú i gCill Chainnigh le linn  chuairt an Easpaig Robert Paterson ó Oileán Mhanainn. Tá gaol cairdis le roinnt bliana anuas idir a dheoisesean agus ár ndeoise agus tá an-mheas agam ar an dóigh inar chuir sé úsáid Ghaelg Mhanainn chun cinn sa liotúirge.  Is annamh a chríochnaíonn sé féin seirbhís gan roinnt focal den dteanga a úsáid”. 

Cuirfear críoch leis an seoladh le seirbhís ghairid ar 12 nóin a bheidh á tionlacan ag Roisin Rowley-Brooke, scoláire orgáin an ardteampaill, agus Cór Fear na nDéise.  Cuirfear lón éadrom ar fáil ina dhiaidh. 

Beidh an taispeántas, An Ghaeilge in Eaglaise na hÉireann, le feiceáil.  Tugann an taispeántas  léargas ar an ról a d’imir fir is mná iontacha san Eaglais a bhí ina dtacadóirí le hionad is le ról na Gaeilge i saol na hEaglaise.

Beidh fáilte roimh chách.

ENGLISH VERSION

On Saturday 31 January , Cumann Gaelach na hEaglaise will  launch a new  CD of hymns and carols, as Gaeilge,   in the Chapter House of St. Canice’s Cathedral,  Kilkenny, at 10.30am.  

Cumann Gaelach na hEaglaise is launching this CD of 16 hymns and carols,  Iomainn agus Carúil Choitianta, as Gaeilge,  to meet the needs of the growing number of congregations around the country that seek to worship in Irish or bilingually and would like to include some hymns in their services.  A bilingual hymnbook  accompanies the CD.  The hymnbook  is intended to supplement the Church Hymnal which already contains a number of hymns in Irish.  

The CD will be launched jointly by the Right Rev Michael Burrows, Bishop of Cashel, Ferns and Ossory and the Right Rev Robert Paterson, Bishop of Sodor and Man who will speak to how Manx is being incorporated in worship in the Isle of Man.  

The soloists,  Cárthach Mac Craith,  Jacynth Hamill, Éamonn Ó Faogáin and Darren Ó Droma will also perform at the launch and they will be accompanied by Cór Fear na nDéise from Co. Waterford.  

Bishop Michael Burrows, Patron of Cumann Gaelach na hEaglaise, welcomes this initiative, saying,

“I'm delighted about this latest initiative on the part of Cumann Gaelach  na hEaglaise and it is a particular pleasure that this launch is taking place in Kilkenny during the visit of Bishop Robert Paterson from the Isle of Man. His diocese and ours have had a companion relationship for some years now and I have admired the manner in which he has effectively promoted the use of Manx in liturgy… Rarely himself completing a service without using some words of it!”

The launch will be followed by a short concluding service at 12.00am, accompanied by Roisin Rowley-Brooke, the cathedral organ scholar, and Cór Fear na nDéise.  There will be a light lunch afterwards.  

The exhibition, An Ghaeilge in Eaglaise na hÉireann, be on display. It provides an insight into the role of  extraordinary men and women in the Church who have been advocates for the place and role of the Irish language in the life of the church. 

Everyone is welcome.
