Check out Coláiste na Rinne in 1969

Seachtain na Gaeilge begins today. Beidh roinnt míreanna Gaeilge le feiceáil ar RTÉ Archives i rith na seachtaine.

Coláiste na Rinne in Co. Waterford featured on the six-part RTÉ series 'Gaeltacht'in 1969. This clip includes an interview with manager Mícheál Ó Domhnaill, who talks about the school's history, how politicians can't speak Irish and the scarcity of funding from Údaras na Gaeltachta. The principal Muiris Boilear says boarders come from all over the country, 'ó Dhún Dealgan go Luimneach,' but the majority are from Dublin.

There is also footage of a singing lesson and children playing in the school grounds, giving all past and present students an opportunity to see how the school has changed over the years, if at all?
