  This week Sharon looks at the words and phrases needed to talk about leisure activities and pastimes. In this programme you’ll learn language that will help you talk about your favourite leisure pursuits.

Micheál Ó Muircheataigh has been described as the ‘quintessential voice of the GAA’ and this is reflected in the enthusiasm he brings to his radio and TV commentaries. Sharon meets Michéal on Sybil Head Golf Course in his native West Kerry and talks to him about his great love of all types of sport.

A visit to Kerry would not be complete without a mention of football! Sharon watches Dara Ó Cinnéide train with the Gaeltacht team and talks to him and his team-mates about their interest in the game.

The soundscape stays on the Dingle peninsula to eavesdrop on fishermen as they prepare a boat to go out fishing.

‘An Grá Faoi Ghlas’ - In this episode Stiofán joins the group and attracts the attention of Rita and Aingeal. The housemates discuss their favorite pastimes and hobbies and give us a chance to get to know them better.
