Borrisokane Community College School Notes
Club na nÓg
Ar an Déardaoin seo caite bhuail daltaí sa chéad bhliain, sa dara bhliain agus san Idirbhliain an bhóthair go moch ar maidin. Chuaigh siad chuig Inis Óirr don lá. Bhí an t-ádh leo leis an aimsir agus fuair siad rothar ar cíos. D’fhan an ghrian ag scoilteadh na gcloch agus d’ith na daltaí lón cois trá. Ar ndóigh chonaic siad na radharcanna ón gcaisleán agus thug siad cuiart ar Thobar Éanna. Deirtear go raibh cónaí ar Naomh Éanna i gclochán coirceogach in aice láimhe agus is mór an t-ómós atá ag na hoileánaigh don tobar seo. De réir an tseanchais, is deachomhair é má éiríonn leat eascann a fheiceáil sa tobar.
Tá timpeall 300 duine ina gcónaí ar an oileán faoi láthair, agus tá sé suite i nGaeltacht Chonnacht. Baineann tábhacht mhór leis an turasóireacht ar an oileán. Chomh maith le sin, tagann go leor daoine ann agus iad ag iarraidh a nGaeilge a fheabhsú, bhí sé iontach do na daltaí an ghaeilge a chloisteáil i measc an phobail.
Tá Club na nÓg críochnaithe don bhliain anois, is grúpa é a dhéanann rudaí deasa trí ghaeilge atá go maith do do fholláine taobh amuigh den seomra ranga
