Gaeilge/Ukrainian Children’s Colouring Book To Be Launched In Carna tomorrow
A new colouring book for both Irish and Ukrainian children is to be launched in Carna tomorrow.
The book, called Spraoi is a collaboration between Tuismitheoirí na Gaeltachta and Galway Rural Development and is aimed at local and Ukrainian children attending Gaeltacht schools.
It is hoped that it will be a classroom learning aid and a source of enjoyment in the home for both.
The book contains a collection of fun illustrations by Fearghas Mac Lochlainn and also has lists of words and phrases i nGaeilge translated into Ukrainian by Nadia Dobrianska.
Nadia is a Ukrainian native who is fluent i nGaeilge, who was displaced because of the war and is now living in this country.
Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this special book is that it comes with a QR code.
The pronunciation of the words i nGaeilge – and Ukrainian – can be found on the website of Tuismitheoirí na Gaeltachta.
The launch will take place at 12 Noon at Ionad Cuimhneachain na nImirceach.
