Run for your language
Pól Ó Muirí
Rith 2010 is a mass sponsored fun run organised as part of the Seachtain na Gaeilge celebrations. The run will begin in Belfast on Tuesday 9th March and participants will cover 1,600 km until they reach Galway on Saint Patrick’s Day. The aim is to celebrate the language in a public way and the organisers invite individual runners, schools and community groups to take part and help carry a ‘language’ baton, with a message from the President of Ireland, Mary McAleese, throughout the 15 counties included in the course. Let the cry go out: blisters before Béarla!
