Culture Minister chats her way to world record win.

Culture Minister Carál Ní Chuilín has taken part in a world record attempt to have the longest Irish language conversation ever.   The record attempt Comhrá 24/7 is being organised by Conradh na Gaeilge as part of Bliain na Gaeilge and is running until the 6th of October.   One hundred and sixty eight groups are required to participate in the 24/7 conversation.

Speaking from Parliament Buildings where the Minister facilitated a conversation circle with St Dominic’s School and Cólaiste Feirste, she said: “This is an innovative way to encourage people to speak Irish and I am very happy to be part of it. 

“Here at Stormont, across Belfast, throughout Ireland and indeed across the world gaeilgoiri are taking part in this fun attempt to break the world record.   A non-stop interactive global conversation spanning a week like this has never taken place before in Irish.

“As a nation of talkers I’m sure we will do our best to be record-breakers and in the process we can all practice our Irish.  Languages will only survive if they are spoken and that is one of the reasons I established Líofa which is a campaign to get people fluent in Irish by 2015.

“I have no doubt this week- long event will be a success and no matter what your level of Irish we will all be record breakers by midnight on the 6th of October.”
