(English version below)

 Beidh Cumann Peile Mhaigh Cuilinn ag reachtáil Comórtas Peile na Gaeltachta i 2014. Is onóir mhór í seo don Chumann agus tá fíor áthas orainn go mbeidh na mílte daoine ag tabhairt cuairt ar ár mbaile le linn deireadh seachtaine bainc an Mheitheamh, 2014.

Tá Comórtas Peile na Gaeltachta á reáchtáil ó 1969 i leith. Is i nGaoth Dobhair a reáchtáladh an chéad dá chomórtas. Comórtas náisiúnta atá ann d’fhoirne na nGaeltachtaí ar fad. Reáchtáiltear na comórtais de réir contae ar dtúis agus bíonn na babhtaí náisiúnta ar siúl thar deireadh seachtaine na Cincíse de ghnáth. Reáchtáiltear na comórtais i gCumann Gaeltachta éigin gach aon bhliain.

Comórtas 1971 

Ó 1977 i leith tá comórtais sóisir agus Sinsir i gceist. Bíonn comórtas Cailín Gaelach ar siúl i rith na deireadh seachtaine chomh maith le ionadaithe ó gach aon chumann. Eagraítear comórtais Liathróid Láimhe freisin i rith na deireadh seachtaine. Eagraítear go leor imeachtaí sóisialta go háitiúil le linn na féile.

Tá craoladh beo á dhéanamh ag Raidió na Gaeltachta ar an gcomórtas ó 1972 agus craoltar na buaicphointí agus na cluichí ceannais ar TG4 ó 1997 anuas freisin.Baineann gach uile dhuine idir imreoirí, iomaitheoirí, lucht tacaíochta agus araile. taitneamh agus tairbhe as an gcomórtas ar leith seo.Bíonn cluichí peile idir na mná óna Gaeltachtaí difriúla ar siúl chomh maith céanna.

Tá muid chun iarracht a dhéanamh i mbliana an Ghaeilge a chur chun cinn sa gCumann. Beidh Comórtas Peile na Gaeltachta againn an bhliain seo chugainn agus is féile mhór mhílteach í ina bhfuil an Ghaeilge ina lár. Is féidir linn ar fad rud beag Gaeilge a úsáid agus beidh muid ag forbairt linn de réir a chéile. Is é Pádraic Ó Neachtain an tOifigeach Gaeilge agus beidh sé ag cur tionscnaimh ar bun chun cabhrú linn ar fad ár dteanga dúchais a úsáid níos minicí. 

 

MAIGH CUILINN TO HOST NATIONAL FOOTBALL COMPETITION

Maigh Cuilinn will have the honour of hosting the annual Comórtas Peile na Gaeltachta in 2014. This is a major event to have in our village and the GAA club will be delighted to invite thousands of visitors to the Village next year. 

Comórtas Peile na Gaeltachta is an annual Gaelic football competition contested by clubs from the Irish language-speaking Gaeltacht areas of Ireland. Clubs compete on a county-basis at first, in order to qualify for the tournament that is hosted by a different club from the Gaeltacht each year. The inaugural competition was held in Gaoth DobhairCounty Donegal in 1969,[1] with the local club Gaoth Dobhair[2] being crowned as champions. From 1975 onwards, the competition has also been contested at junior level.

RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta provides extensive radio coverage of both the regional qualifiers and the national finals, held over the June Bank Holiday. TG4 provides live television coverage of the finals on the June Bank Holiday Monday and these are also webcast world wide online.

The 2010 champions were Béal an Mhuirthead from Mayo at senior level, who won the tournament on home ground, and An Spidéal at junior level. Cloich Cheannfhaola from An Fál Carrach in Donegal hosted and subsequently won the 2011 senior title, beating Maigh Cuilinn of Galway in the final on a scoreline of 0.11 to 1.6.[3] At junior level, Naomh Mhuire from the Rosses in Donegal won the title by beating Laochra Loch Lao of Belfast on a scoreline of 0.14 to 0.13.

The 2012 competition was held in Gaoth Dobhair,[4] who are the joint most successful club in the competition's history. They managed to win the tournament outright on home soil also, the third consecutive team to do so. They beat Mayo's Cill tSéadhna, a team who remarkably made the final after three games in two days. Even more remarkably, they scored a total of 17 goals in 4 games (15 of them in the first 3 games). Gaoth Dobhair, however, were by far the superior team over the weekend. They won the final on a scoreline of 1-13 to 2-9. An estimated crowd of 10,000 attended the picturesque coastal region for the finals.

 

The Waterford club Rinn Ó gCuanach CLG will host the competition in 2013. They hosted the tournament last in 1999. The Kerry teams An Ghaeltacht and Lios Póil won the senior and junior finals respectively that year. 

With Cumann Peile Mhaigh Cuilinn Hosting the 2014 Comórtas, we are redoubling our efforts to promote the use of Gaeilge in the Club. Padraic O Neachtain was appointed our Irish Language officer at our recent AGM. Padraic is currently setting up initatives to do this, so keep a look out for an increased use of our native language, over the coming weeks and months.
