Tráth na gCeist 2021/22


Tráth na gCeist  2021/22

Because of Covid-19 it will not be possible to organise Tráth na gCeist in the usual way in 2021/22. Gael Linn does, however, wish to support the work of Irish language teachers and will therefore continue to provide Tráth na gCeist, in a different format. Each school will be provided with a quiz package upon application


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


Gael Linn will provide schools with all the material necessary to organise a quiz among their students at a time that suits themselves. Each quiz is for teams of four. There are 6 rounds of questions with 10 questions in each round and team members may confer. The school will furnish Gael Linn with the names of the four students on the winning teams before 17.00 on 19th November 2021 using this email address Prizes will be awarded for first and second place in each school. 


Tráth na gCeist is open to teams of four from junior level classes in post-primary 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. 


Prizes are presented to the top two teams from both secondary and grammar schools.


To enter teams and to pay the fee of £5.00/€5.00 per team (maximum of £50/€50 per school, however, schools may enter as many teams as they wish) click on Application Form at the top of the page as soon as possible and before 15th October 2021.
