Seachtain na Gaeilge le Galway Maths Grinds

Is féile idirnáisiúnta Ghaeilge í Seachtain na Gaeilge atá ar an gceiliúradh is mó dár dteanga agus dár gcultúr dúchais a bhíonn ar siúl in Éirinn agus in go leor tíortha eile gach bliain.

Seachtain na Gaeilge is an international Irish language festival and one of the biggest celebrations of our native language and culture that takes place each year in Ireland and in many other countries.

You are encouraged to use whatever level of Irish you have. It may be more than you realise. Give it a go.

English-Irish math translations: this is a work in progress and I am hoping that people will email corrections to me so that the document can be updated and improved. But with over 1300 maths related words and phrases I think that it may already be of use to students who find themselves doing maths classes through Irish and having textbooks in English.

You can also check with online translators like google translate.
