Bua Mór Bainte ag Mic Léinn ag na Gradaim Náisiúnta

Ag Gradaim na hÉireann d’Éachtaí Mac Léinn a bhí ar siúl le déanaí, rinneadh ceiliúradh ar an méid a rinne mic léinn ó cheann ceann na tíre ar son phobal na mac léinn agus shochaí na hÉireann le bliain anuas. Is iad Gradaim na hÉireann d’Éachtaí Mac Léinn imeacht oifigiúil aitheantais ghluaiseacht na mac léinn in Éirinn, agus is é AMLÉ (Aontas na Mac Léinn in Éirinn) a dhéanann maoirseacht orthu.

Bhí ainmnithe de chuid Chomhaltas na Mac Léinn, Ollscoil na Gaillimhe ar an ngearrliosta le haghaidh 21 gradam suntasach i mbliana, agus bhuaigh siad 5 cinn acu ag an searmanas i mBaile Átha Cliath, an líon is mó riamh.

Seo a leanas na gradaim a bhuaigh na mic léinn:

  • Seaimpín Rochtana na Bliana: Latisha McCrudden
  • Seaimpín Iarchéime na Bliana: Chris Stewart
  • Seaimpín Carthanachta na Bliana: Comhaltas na Mac Léinn, OÉ Gaillimh
  • Saothar Aonair do Mheáin na Mac Léinn: Caoimhe Looney
  • Soláthraí Meán Mac Léinn na Bliana: Galway Pulse

Dúirt Dean Kenny, Uachtarán Chomhaltas na Mac Léinn: “Táimid an-bhródúil as na hainmnithe agus as na buaiteoirí go léir ag Gradaim na hÉireann d’Éachtaí Mac Léinn. Is léir óna thiomanta atá ár Seaimpíní Iarchéime agus Rochtana iontacha, Chris agus Latisha, go bhfuil gluaiseacht na mac léinn faoi chúram maith. Tá an-jab go deo déanta i mbliana ag eagarthóir an nuachtáin Sin, Caoimhe Looney, agus tá an gradam ‘Saothar Aonair do Mheáin na Mac Léinn’ tuillte go maith aici. Tá an-áthas orainn freisin gur bhuaigh muid an gradam ‘Seaimpín Carthanachta na Bliana’ freisin as an méid airgid thar na bearta a d’éirigh linn a thiomsú ar son Charthanais an Chomhaltais i mbliana agus, ar ndóigh, filleadh Sheachtain RAG.”

Students’ Union Raises Record €53,275 for Charity

Students’ Union Raises Record €53,275 for Charity

University of Galway Students’ Union today presented the proceeds of their year of fundraising events to Galway Rape Crisis Centre and Cancer Care West. The unique charity events held throughout the academic year raised a total of €53,275 for the two charities – the most ever raised by the Students’ Union.

The Students’ Union held fundraisers throughout the year culminating in the triumphant return of Raise and Give Week in February which included events such as the Firewalk, a head shave, a charity auction, a 5km fun run, a Taylor Swift Night and a 5 A Side Tournament. They also held a giant Christmas Raffle, saucy Sex Toy Bingo, Take Me Out, a Harry Styles Night, and Galentine’s Day Brunch.

Included in the total amount raised is a €20,000 donation from, Sult, Smokey’s Café and the Students’ Union Shop. These services are owned by the Students’ Union and raised money from a levy on disposable cups which is part of the Students’ Union’s ongoing commitment to eliminating single use cups on campus.

Students’ Union President Dean Kenny said: “We’re delighted to have raised the most money ever in our Union’s history for charity, and it’s all thanks to every single student that got involved with any of our events throughout the year. We’d also like to thank the University for giving us this opportunity to bring Raise and Give week back to its roots, raising money and bringing back that sense of community on campus. I’m also delighted that our student owned services on campus helped out in the fundraising efforts with a great initiative by donating the proceeds of a levy on single use coffee cups, which further demonstrates our commitment to sustainability.”

Students’ Union Vice-President for the Irish Language Officer Faye Ní Dhomhnaill added: “In what has been a stressful year with the continued cost of living crisis it’s great that the students and staff of University of Galway have put such a huge effort in to raising funds to help others. We are delighted to be presenting €53,275 to these two amazing charities who do so much for those in need. To have raised so much is a great achievement for all involved.”

€53,275 Tiomsaithe ag Comhaltas na Mac Léinn ar son Carthanachta, an Méid is Mó Riamh

Inniu bhronn Comhaltas na Mac Léinn, Ollscoil na Gaillimhe airgead a bailíodh le bliain anuas ar Ionad Éigeandála na Gaillimhe um Éigniú agus ar Chúram Ailse an Iarthair. Bailíodh €53,275 san iomlán – an méid is mó a bhailigh Comhaltas na Mac Léinn riamh – don dá charthanas ag imeachtaí carthanachta ar leith a bhí ar siúl le linn na bliana.

Reáchtáil Comhaltas na Mac Léinn imeachtaí tiomsaithe airgid ó cheann ceann na bliana agus bhí an tSeachtain Tiomsaithe Airgid agus Carthanachta ar siúl i mí Feabhra den chéad uair le fada an lá. I measc na n-imeachtaí a bhí ar siúl an tseachtain sin bhí siúl dóiteáin, lombhearradh gruaige, ceant carthanachta, rith spraoi 5km, Oíche Taylor Swift agus Comórtas Cúigear an Taobh. Reáchtáladh Crannchur Ollmhór na Nollag, Biongó Gnéasbhréagán, Take Me Out, Oíche Harry Styles agus Bróinse Lá na gCairde Ban freisin.

San áireamh sa mhéid iomlán a bailíodh tá síntiús €20,000 ó Sult, Smokey’s Café agus Siopa Chomhaltas na Mac Léinn. Is le Comhaltas na Mac Léinn na seirbhísí sin agus bhailigh siad an t-airgead trí thobhach ar chupáin indiúscartha, feachtas atá ina chuid de thiomantas Chomhaltas na Mac Léinn le fáil réidh le cupáin aonúsáide ar an gcampas.

Dúirt Dean Kenny, Uachtarán Chomhaltas na Mac Léinn: “Tá an-áthas orainn gur bhailigh muid an méid is mó airgid ar son carthanachta riamh i stair an Chomhaltais, agus tá an buíochas as sin ag dul do gach uile mhac léinn ar leith a ghlac páirt i gceann ar bith de na himeachtaí a bhí ar siúl i mbliana. “Ba mhaith linn buíochas a ghabháil leis an Ollscoil freisin as an deis a thabhairt dúinn an tSeachtain Tiomsaithe Airgid agus Carthanachta a thabhairt ar ais agus an bhraistint phobail a ghabhann léi a chothú ar an gcampas arís. Tá lúcháir orm freisin gur chabhraigh na seirbhísí atá againn ar an gcampas, ar leis na mac léinn iad, leis na hiarrachtaí tiomsaithe airgid trí na fáltais ón tobhach ar chupáin chaife aonúsáide a thabhairt, rud is léiriú eile ar a thiomanta atá muid don inbhuanaitheacht.”

Dúirt Leasuachtarán Chomhaltas na Mac Léinn don Ghaeilge, Faye Ní Dhomhnaill: “Cé gur bliain acadúil strusmhar a bhí ann mar gheall ar an ngéarchéim costais maireachtála atá ag leanúint ar aghaidh, is iontach an rud é go ndearna mic léinn Ollscoil na Gaillimhe a seacht ndícheall airgead a bhailiú le cabhrú le daoine eile. Tá ríméad orainn €53,275 a bhronnadh ar an dá charthanas iontacha seo a thugann cúnamh nach beag do dhaoine in am an ghátair. Is éacht ollmhór é gur éirigh leo siúd a bhí páirteach an méid sin airgid a thiomsú.”

Leideanna do na Scrúduithe

Roimh an Scrúdú

  • Bíonn muid go léir ag foghlaim ar bhealach difriúil, bain triail as modhanna staidéir éagsúla agus faigh amach cad a oireann duit.
  • Dírigh agus oibrigh go córasach trí gach topaic, ceist ar cheist.
  • Déan iarpháipéir scrúdaithe agus bí ag cleachtadh ceisteanna.
  • Má theastaíonn cúnamh uait le topaic – déan teagmháil le do páirtithe ranga nó le do léachtóir.
  • Bíodh a fhios agat cathain a bheidh do scrúduithe ar siúl – féach ar d’amchlár pearsantaithe ar shuíomh gréasáin scrúduithe Ollscoil na Gaillimhe.
  • Bíodh a fhios agat cén cineál scrúdaithe a bheidh tú ag tabhairt faoi – leabhar oscailte, MCQ, páipéar scríofa 2 uair an chloig srl. mura bhfuil tú cinnte – CUIR CEIST.

I rith an Scrúdaithe

  • Glac am chun tú féin a réiteach agus tarraing ANÁIL
  • Léigh gach ceist go cúramach.
  • Fág am chun athbhreithniú a dhéanamh ar do pháipéar ag an deireadh.
  • Socraigh leithdháiltí ama do gach ceist agus bog ar aghaidh nuair a bheidh an t-am thart.

Aire a thabhairt duit féin

  • Tóg sosanna rialta i rith staidéir.
  • Seachain cloíteacht, codail go maith, coinnigh gníomhach agus lig duit féin am a thógáil saor.
  • Ith go sláintiúil
  • Socraigh spriocanna pearsanta.
  • Tóg gach lá de réir mar a thagann sé – ná bíodh lagmhisneach ort má bhíonn drochscrúdú agat nó mura bhfuil staidéar ag dul go maith.

Má théann rud éigin ar seachrán

  • Má chailleann tú do chárta aitheantais Mac Léinn is féidir leat ceann nua a cheannach ar €20 ag Deasc Cabhrach Chlárlann na Mac Léinn in Áras Uí Chathail
  • Má théann rud éigin ar seachrán nach bhfuil smacht agat air, rud a chiallaíonn nach féidir leat freastal ar do scrúdú is féidir leat do scrúdú a chur siar go Lúnasa agus ní chuirfear teorainn ar do thoradh. Tá liosta de na daoine ar cheart duit teagmháil a dhéanamh leo más gá duit cur siar a fháil anseo
  • Má theipeann ort i scrúdú, beidh deis agat an toradh a achomharc
  • Má theipeann ort sa scrúdú beidh deis agat an scrúdú a dhéanamh arís i mí Lúnasa. Cuirfear teorainn 40% leis an ngrád don athscrúdú do gach bliain ach amháin an chéad bhliain.
