Stephen Rea
Tá cliú agus caill ar an aisteoir Stephen Rea le fada an lá óna chuid oibre le
“Field Day” thart fá fiche bliain ó shin go dtí na scannáin mhóra “The Crying Game” agus “Michael Collins”. Tá liosta na gcreidiúintí ag méadú leis agus is é an bheart
is déanaí atá déanta aige na an scannán úr Gaeilge “Fluent Dysphasia”.

Stephen in Fluent DysphasiaStephen Rea is famous here in Ireland not only for his work over 20 years ago with the Field Day company but also box office hits such as “The Crying Game” and “Michael Collins”. “Fluent Dysphasia” is a short film directed by Daniel O’Hara in which Rea plays the role of a single father who is more interested in a night out with the lads than communicating with his only daughter, but everything changes after a drunken binge when he wakes up the following morning, mysteriously speaking perfect Irish – which he never could before – and having forgotten how to speak English!

Scitsifréine
Play: Imithe le GealaíIs lipéad é an focal scitsefréine a bhfuil cuid mhór aineolais ag baint leis seachas i
measc lucht leighis. Tá duais mhór de chuid an Comhlachais Náisiúnta Drámaíochta,
Gradam na hAmharclainne, bainte ag Maria Ní Mhurchú don drama úr “Imithe le Gealaí”. Is é sa dráma seo ná cúntas pearsanta Uí Mhurchú ar an ghalar a d’fhulaing sí féin.

It is an illness about which there are many misconceptions and apart from being very much misunderstood, Schizophrenia is also greatly feared; most of what people think they know about schizophrenia is wrong but a new play “Imithe le Gealaí” by Maria Ní Mhurchú may help dispel some of the myths surrounding an illness from which she herself has suffered.

Road Bowls
Is cluiche ársa í bollaí bóthair a n-imrítear le bol iarrain agus atá Road Bowlsá chleachtadh in Éirinn leis na cianta, deirtear go dtáinig an cluiche go hÉirinn thart ar an seachtú nó an t-ochtú haois déag agus gur glacadh isteach é ón Éigipt. Sa lá atá inniu ann imrítear bollaí go príomha i gceantracha tuaithe in Ard Mhacha agus i gCorcaigh go príomha maraon le pócaí beaga scaipthe thart ar an tír. D’athraigh rialacha an chluiche giota beag thar na blianta ach tá an chluiche a bheag nó a mhór bunaithe ar an tseanstíl a bhí in úsáid nuair a tháinig sé ar an tsaol. Fuair Céara agus Michelle an deis lá a chaitheamh i gcuideachta Chumann Bol Ard Mhacha agus triall a bhaint as!
