Galwegians who think they can do sports commentary as Gaeilge as good as Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh or Seán Bán Breathnach, should check out a new competition.
The competition is being run by RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta and the GAA. The winner will get two tickets to their choice of either the All-Ireland Football or Hurling Final in September, a weekend for two in the Croke Park Hotel, and a chance to step into the commentary box on All-Ireland day.
The top entrants to the competition will also be invited to attend a special day-long workshop in the Raidió na Gaeltachta HQ in Casla, Connemara, in August with some of the best commentators in the country.
Those who would like to enter should send a 60 second recording of themselves commentating as Gaeilge to [email protected], or by post to Comórtas Tráchtaireachta, RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta, Casla, Conamara, Co na Gaillimhe.
The closing date is August 9 and entrants must be +18. Entries must include the entrant’s name, address, and phone number. See www.rte.ie/rnag
