Tráth na gCeist


Tráth na gCeist Gael Linn aims to provide students of Irish in Ulster the opportunity to hear the language being spoken outside the classroom at an informal and lighthearted event and to support the Irish teachers in their endeavours.


Events are organised at different venues throughout the province. Each event is for teams of four. There are 6 rounds of questions with 10 questions in each round and team members may confer. After the quiz a céilí or concert is organised for the students.


Tráth na gCeist is open to teams of four from junior level classes in postprimary schools in Ulster. There is no limit to the number of teams a school may enter. The junior section is aimed primarily at students of Year 10 although Year 8 and Year 9 students are also allowed take part. There is no competition for senior students.


Prizes are presented to the top three teams from both secondary and grammar schools at each venue.


To enter teams and to pay the fees of £5.00 per team click on Application Form at the top of the page. Last date for entries is 23 September 2019
