Athghabháil na teanga, Éirí Amach na Cásca agus an Díchoilíniú neamhchríochnaithe

12 April 2020

Éirí Amach na Cásca – The 1916 Easter Rising - BA DHOILIGH ról na Gaeilge agus an athbheochan chultúrtha le linn na tréimhse reábhlóidí in Éirinn a thuiscint gan cíoradh níos leithne a dhéanamh ar thionchar an choilíneachais ar phobal na tíre. Is beag saineolaí teanga, polaitíochta nó socheolaíochta nach mbeadh in aontas le tuairim Naom Chomsky gur ‘ceisteanna cumhachta i gcónaí iad ceisteanna teanga’. Tá an nasc seo i bhfad níos soiléire i gcomhthéacs an choilíneachais, nuair atá ansmacht an chultúir dhúchasaigh mar phríomhchloch ar phaidrín an ionraidh choilínigh. Ar an bhonn seo, ní tharlaíonn meath teanga ariamh i bpobail atá saibhir agus faoi phribhléid ach dóibh siúd atá díshealbhaithe agus díchumhachtaithe amháin. Free article

In April 1920 with Dáil Éireann and Sinn Féin banned by the British regime and the Black and Tans newly deployed in the country, the struggle for Irish independence intensified.

In the jails the struggle was stepped up, culminating in a mass hunger strike in Mountjoy Prison, Dublin. Free article
