A Cairde, Ba mhaith linn cuireadh foirmeálta a thabhairt duit chun teacht chuig an imeacht sin, Úsáid na Gaeilge san Oispidéal, a mbeidh ar súil ar an 21ú Feabhra i gColáiste Ollscoile BÁC.
We would like cordially invite you to our event, Úsáid na Gaeilge san Oispidéal, which will be held on Wednesday, 21st of February in UCD.
Beidh go leor pointí suimiúla á phlé againn faoi úsáid na Gaeilge in Oispidéil na hÉireann - idir na buntaistí agus na míbhuntaistí atá ag baint leis, an bhfuil an rialtas ag déanamh go leor, nó barraíocht, agus má chóir do na scoileanna leigheas oideachas a chur ar fáil trí mheáin na Gaeilge. Beidh plé oscailte againn tar éis sin, agus ba bhreá linn thú a fheiceáil ann chun do smaointí a chur os ár gcomhair.
Beidh tae, brioscaí agus ceapairí againn tar éis.
Tosaíonn sé ag a 7in sa Seomra Gorm in Ionad na Mac Léinn, COBÁC ar an 21ú Feabhra. ___________________________________________________
We will be discussing many interesting points about the use of Gaeilge in Irish Hospitals - between its advantages and disadvantages, if the government is doing enough, or too much, and if the School of Medicine should offer courses to be taught through the medium of Irish.
We will have an open discussion afterwards and would love to have you there to share your opinions on the topic with us.
This will be followed by tea, biscuits and sandwiches.
It all starts at 7pm in the Blue Room in the Student's Union Centre, UCD on the 21st of February.

Our sincere condolences to the families of the 17 victims of the recent horrific attack at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Parkland, Florida. The Irish connections among the victims and those injured remind us of how small our troubled world can be. As a School we know only too well the devastation that follows untimely deaths.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a n-anamacha.
We offer our appreciation to the brave first responders and emergency medicine staff who cared for those caught up in the attack. On this occasion the medical response team was lead by our alumnus, Dr Evan Boyar (UCD Medicine 2002). Both Evan and his wife, Dr Paula Coghlan graduated from our medicine programme in 2002 and both are emergency medicine specialists at Broward Health North, Pompano Beach. We are proud of their public service in the face of such horror and wish them and their colleagues well in the weeks and months ahead. ... See MoreSee Less
