Promoting Irish is supposed to be a serious business. After all, dying languages are usually not a laughing matter. However a new Irish-language stand-up comedy club, GaelGÁIRÍ, will be launched this Saturday (29th March, 8.30pm) in Club Chonradh na Gaeilge, Harcourt Street, Dublin, to help Irish speakers look on the bright side of life. Long-established funny man, Colm O’Regan, will lead the night’s Irish-speaking comedy charge and has considerable experience at finding people’s funny bones in English, having already appeared at Montreal Just for Laughs, Kilkenny Cat Laughs and Electric Picnic. He will be joined by fellow comics Aideen McQueen, as well as the founders of GaelGÁIRÍ, Andy Ó Faoláin and Eoin P. The organisers hope to run GaleGÁIRÍ on the last Saturday of every month in Club Chonradh na Gaeilge and will be encouraging new talent to take part. So, this Gaeilgeoir walks into a bar…
