This feature is bi-lingual. An English translation follows

Céad Míle Fáilte ó Cheanada go dtí
An Cheathrú Rua!

Ba é lá mhuintir Cheanada an Satharn (19/10/2013) seo caite nuair a thóg "Siúil Siar" 23 daoine ó Cheanada amach ar siúl ar chósta na Ceathrún Rua i gConamara. Is cainteoiri Gaeilge iad atá mar bhall d'Oireachtas Cheanada ag cur teanga agus cultúr na Gaeilge chun tosaigh ina dtír féin.

Cé go raibh beagánín báistigh ag a dheireadh  (aimsear a thug an grúpa leo o Cheanada!!) bhain siad taitneamh as an siúlóid agus as na scéalta staire is cladaigh a chuala siad le linn an turais.

It was "Canada Day" in Carraroe last Saturday (19/10/2013) when Walking West Siúil Siar guided a group of 23 Canadians around Carraroe's shoreline and greenways in Connemara. The group were Irish-speakers who have become part of Canada's own "Gaeltacht" to foster interest in the Irish language and culture.

The showers towards the end of the walk didn't dampen the spirits as the group was introduced to the landscape, culture and history of our own Gaeltacht.
