ILBF documentary looks back at 40 years of St Malachy’s College

New Irish Language Broadcast Fund documentary Daichead Bliain ag Fás looks back at 40 years of St Malachy’s College, Belfast through the eyes of four former pupils; Cathal Goan (former RTÉ Director General), Diarmuid Ó Tuama (former headmaster of Bunscoil Phobal Feirste), Malachy Doyle (Children’s author) and Danny Brown (Irish language activist and broadcaster). Produced by Tobar Productions it airs on Sunday 25th November at 9.30pm on TG4.

In May 1972 in St Malachy’s College students sit down together for their A-Level Irish language exam. Whilst they are full of the confidence and aspirations of youth, the city is full of the conflict and violence of disputed identities. Forty years on, four individuals return to their desks to gauge where it all went well went wrong!

Daichead Bliain ag Fás cuts between one on one interviews and “class” discussions with the four former students. Archive footage is used to build a fascinating view of the times, their lives and the role and influence of Irish language within both.


 Amharcann clár faisnéise an CCG ar Choláiste Mhaolmhaodhóg agus é 40 bliain d’aois

Is trí shúile ceathrar de na iardhaltaí a d’fhreastail ar Choláiste Mhaolmhaodhóg, Béal Feirste a n-amharcann clár faisnéise nua an CCG Daichead Bliain ag Fás. Is iad Cathal Goan (Iar Ard-Stiúrthóir RTÉ), Diarmuid Ó Tuama (Iarphríomhoide Bhunscoil Phobal Feirste), Malachy Doyle (Scríbhneoir leabhar do pháistí) agus Danny Brown (Craoltóir agus gníomhaí ar son na Gaeilge) an ceathrar a roinnfidh a dtuairimí agus a gcuimhneacháin. Léirithe ag Tobar Léiriúcháin, craolfar an clár Dé Domhnaigh 25iú Samhain ar 9.30 i.n. ar TG4.

Bogann Daichead Bliain ag Fás idir agallaimh aonaracha agus plé “ranga” leis an cheathrar iardhalta. Baintear úsáid as físeáin ón chartlann le pictiúr spéisiúil na tréimhse sin a thógáil. Agus an clár fite fuaite le scéalta éagsúla an cheathrair, tugtar léargas ar a saolta agus ar an tionchar a bhí ag an Ghaeilge orthu ag an am sin.

Suíonn daltaí Choláiste Mhaolmhaodhóg síos le chéile i mí na Bealtaine sa bhliain 1972, leis an scrúdú Gaeilge Ard Leibhéal a dhéanamh. Cé go bhfuil siad lán le muinín an óige agus dóchasach don am atá le teacht, tá an chathair ina dtimpeall lán le foréigean agus coimhlint. Filleann an ceathrar chuig a ndeasca scoile daichead bliain ina dhiaidh imeachta dóibh leis an saol agus ar ar tharla idir an dá linn a mheá agus a mheas.
