    Default Folóir Polaitíochta

    Smaoineamh nua. Sa chéad teachtaireacht scríobhfaidh mé foclóir polaitíochta beag as Gaeilge. Déanfaidh mé "stickie" as.
    Má tá ceist ag duine éigin faoi fhocal polaitiúil sa Ghaeilge, cuirfear é sa liosta sa chéad teachtaireacht agus fásfaidh sé de réir a chéile!
    Beidh sé ina áis ag na daoine atá ag iarraidh cúrsaí polaitíochta a phlé as Gaeilge agus atá ag iarraidh a gcuid Gaeilge féin a fheabhsú. Ar aghaidh libh!

    A new idea. In the first message I'll post a short Irish political dictionary. I'll make it into a stickie. If anyone has a question about an Irish political word, it'll get put in the list in the first post and it'll gradually expand according to your needs!
    It can be a facility for those who wish to debate politics in irish and who want to improve their Irish vocab.
    Off yez go!

    Tá siad istigh.

    delegation - toscaire
    Delegate, nach ea?

    Níl mé cinnte faoin aistriúchán Soldier's of Destiny ar Fianna Fáil. An Ghaeilge ar "Destiny" ná "Cinniúint".
    Go bhfios dom ciallaíonn Fáil, Éire.
