    RADIO GAA GAEILGE

    Blathnaid in action 


    Na Gaeil Óga is an Irish language GAA club based in Dublin bringing together Gaeltacht people and non-Gaeltacht people looking for a sport and social outlet with a common love of the language. 5 years ago a bunch of college students were dis-illusioned with the lack of opportunity to engage in the language in that kind of setting - so they did somethin about it. With advice from two well established Gaeilgeoirí, Ciarán Ó Finneadha and, later on, PJ MacGabhamm they set up Na Gaeil Óga. And who else could handle the assignment to distill the essence of such a club - Blathnaid Ni Chofaigh of course.

    Damien met  Herdwatch farmer Andrew on his farm in Co. Tipperary to find out how Herdwatch is saving him 5-6 hours a week - and how that all this information can be seen anytime, anywhere from your smartphone, tablet or laptop/computer.4 years ago Fabien Peyaud founded Herdwatch, described as a cloud-based “mobile CRM for cows”, which is tech speak for a computerised system to manage all the data and records of dairy cattle,in particular.

    Herdwatch has won strings of enterprise and tech awards over the last 3 years, is a runaway success, and having conquered Ireland they are about to move into the UK.
