The Galway Review

Uinseann Mac Thómais is a former civil servant. Formerly of Roinn na Gaeltachta, his work in community and language development holds considerable interest for him still. He is currently on the board of Taibhdhearc na Gaillimhe, the National Irish Theatre, Gaillimh le Gaeilge, and Dúchas na Gaillimhe. He has been “dabbling” (his own word) in writing poetry, short stories, and occasional contributions to the Irish Times over the years. Tá cónaí air i gCnoc na Cathrach ó 1983 lena bhean Gearóidín, a iníonacha Katie agus Louise, an cat agus na madraí.

 

Three poems in Irish by Uinseann Mac Thómais

Aimhreas

Tá fear ar m’aithne
atá an-dhílis do Ghaeilge
ar uairibh ámh
ní maith leis go mbeadh
rudaí curtha as Gaeilge amháin
Le faitíos nach dtuigfeadh daoine é
Ar ócáidí eile, ámh
Bíonn faitíos air
rudaí a chur i nGaeilge
le faitíos go dtuigfeadh daoine é

Is baolach don Ghaeilge
