Máirtín Ó Cadhain
Film

Clár speisialta é ‘Rí an Fhocail’, a dhéanann plé ar scríbhneoireacht Uí Chadhain agus a fhéachann lena shuí ina shaol féin agus i saol a linne. Sa scannán ‘Ó Cadhain sa gCnocán Glas’, cuireann Ó Cadhain in aithne don lucht féachana a cheantar dúchais, muintir an cheantair, an saol a bhí acu, agus an teanga a labhair siad – na rudaí a mhúnlaigh mar dhuine agus mar scríbhneoir é.

‘Rí an Fhocail’ discusses Ó Cadhain’s written work, and aims to place him as one of the distinguished writers of his time. In ‘Ó Cadhain sa gCnocán Glas’, we’re introduced to the place of his upbringing, to locals of the area, their life experiences and the language they spoke – the factors that shaped himself as a person and a writer.


Dhá chlár a cheiliúrann saol agus saothar Mháirtín Uí Chadhain. I 2006 rinne RTÉ coimisiúnú ar ‘Rí an Fhocail’, clár speisialta a dhéanann plé ar scríbhneoireacht Uí Chadhain agus a fhéachann lena shuí ina shaol féin agus i saol a linne. Tá agallaimh ann leis na scríbhneoirí Micheál Ó Conghaile, Joe Steve Ó Neachtain agus Louis de Paor, chomh maith le miondrámaí bunaithe ar shaothar an Chadhnaigh, agus ábhar cartlainne. Bhuaigh sé duais don chlár Gaeilge is fearr ag na Irish Film and Television Awards 2007 agus don chlár ealaíon is fearr ag an Celtic Film Festival 2006.

Is clár cartlainne de chuid RTÉ é ‘Ó Cadhain sa gCnocán Glas’ a craoladh de chéaduair i 1967 agus a bhfuil athmháistriú déanta ag Leabharlann agus Cartlann RTÉ anois air. Is sa gCnocán Glas taobh thiar den Spidéal a taifeadadh an clár, áit ar rugadh agus ar tógadh Ó Cadhain, agus is é Ó Cadhain féin an treoraí don chlár. Cuireann sé in aithne don lucht féachana a cheantar dúchais, muintir an cheantair, an saol a bhí acu, agus an teanga a labhair siad – na rudaí a mhúnlaigh mar dhuine agus mar scríbhneoir é.

Two programmes that celebrate the life and work of Máirtín Ó Cadhain. RTÉ commissioned ‘Rí an Fhocail’ in 2006, a programme of consequence that discusses Ó Cadhain’s written work, and aims to place him as one of the distinguished writers of his era. Features include interviews with writers Micheál Ó Conghaile, Joe Steve Ó Neachtain and Louis de Pao, short plays based on Ó Cadhain’s written work, as well as archive material. It was awarded best Irish-language programme at the 2007 Irish Film and Television Awards and best arts programme at the 2006 Celtic Film Festival.

One of RTÉ’s archive programmes, ‘Ó Cadhain sa gCnocán Glas’ was first broadcast in 1967 and has since been re-mastered by RTÉ Libraries and Archives. The programme was recorded in Cnocán Glas, a short distance from Spiddal where Ó Cadhain was born and raised, Ó Cadhain himself acting as a guide for the viewer. He introduces us to the place of his upbringing, to locals of the area, their life experiences and the language they spoke – the factors that shaped him as a person and a writer.

Is i nGaeilge atá an dá chlár agus fotheidil Bhéarla orthu.

Both programmes in Irish with subtitles.
