A cháirde gaeil,
An bhfuil tú tinn de Tinder, POF agus a leithid? Bí linn ag Rock agus Roam - Cleamhnas Ceilteach ar Oileán Thoraigh, deireadh seachtaine de ceol, damhsa, nádúr, cultuir, scealaíocht, comhra agus craic ar Oileán Thoraigh. Ceiliúradh de cultúir na ngael. Agus má tá suim agat Cleamhnas Ceilteach a fháil ón Rí - tá fáilte mhór romhat litir a scríobh ag an Rí nó riomhphoist ag Moira@mng.ie agus seolfaidh mise é chuig an Rí. Sílim gur áit an romansúil atá i dToraigh, leis an stair, an landscape, an seanchaí agus an cultúir, áit ar thit go leor daoine i ngrá. I love that feeling of being removed from reality. In san aois a bhfuil miuid, tá sé deacair casadh le daoine go nádurtha, fríd damhsa, caint agus craic. Seo deis to step back in time, fill your soul with music, culture, folklore, connect with nature and likeminded people agus do chuid gaeilge a labhairt chomh maith.
*Muna bhfuil moran gaeilge agat, táimid ag cuir le cheile dóigh a dtig leat comhra bunúsach a fhoghlaim le cuidiú leat a bheith páirteach agus meascadh le daoine.
Are you sick of Tinder & POF? Would you like to meet likeminded people in a more organic environment? Every time I visit this island I learn more about the fantastic myths, legends, traditions and culture. I think there is such a romance to the this place, I also believe there is a beautiful romance to our native language. So we invite you to join us and for Rock & Roam Tory Island and in one weekend, learn to dance, connect with nature, heritage, workshops in learning your story in Irish, all with like minded others and much more.
And to add to the romance, the king has offered his services as a Celtic Match Maker for anyone looking for romance the traditional way. There is a tradition of match making on the Island and no shortage of love in our native language. Send a letter to the King before the the 2nd October explaining about yourself why you're looking for romance. Or you can email email@example.com and I will forward your letter to the king. Send to Patsy Dan Mac Ruaidhrí, Rí Thoraigh, Oileán Thoraigh, Rock agus Roam Cleamhas, Co. Dhún na nGall.
