Ché i nGabhla – Gola Island Pier

Beidh Máirín Jimí Ní Fhearraigh, Bainisteoir Comharchumann na nOileán Beag, ag treorú na siúlóide seo ar Shlí Bhealach na Gaeltachta Ghabhla. Is duine do bhunadh Ghabhla í Máirín, a tháinig ar an tsaol ar an oileán agus a bhog go dtí an tír mór ina hóige. Beidh cur síos dhátheangach (Gaeilge agus Béarla) a dhéanamh ar stair agus saol an oileáin agus beidh fáilte roimh cheisteanna ó rannpháirtithe. Tosóidh an siúlóid, a mhairtheas 45 bomaite, ar a ché i nGabhla ag a 2.00in ar an lá. Is féidir taisteal chuig an oileán ar bhád farantóireachta Ghabhla.

Tá Gabhla lonnaithe tuairim agus 1km amach ó chósta Ghaoth Dobhair i nGaeltacht Dhún na nGall. D’fhág an chuid is mó do dhaonra an oileáin le cónaí ar an tír mór nuair a dhruid scoil na n-oileán sna 1960aidí. Tá athbheochan tagtha ar Ghabhla ó thús an chéid. Tá leictreachas agus uisce a sholáthar ón tír mór, rud a chuidigh le tithe a thógáil agus a choiriú agus daoine a mhealladh chun an oileáin arís.

Máirín Jimí Ní Fhearraigh, Manager of Comharchumann na nOileán Beag, will lead this guided walk of Gabhla Island through Slí Bhealach na Gaeltachta Ghabhla. Máirín was born on the island and moved to the mainland in her youth. The walk will provided a bilingual (Gaeilge and English) account on life on the island and its history and will welcome questions from participants. The 45-minute walk will begin at 2.00pm on the pier in Gabhla on the day. You can travel to Gabhla Island on the Gola Island Ferry.

Gabhla (Gola) Island is located approximately 1km off the coast of Gweedore in the Donegal Gaeltacht. The vast majority of the population left the island for the mainland when the island’s school closed in the 1960s. Gabhla has experienced a renaissance since the turn of the century, coinciding with newly supplied electricity and water to the island from the mainland that encouraged the building and restoration
