What is Rith 2010?

Rith 2010 is a new national festival for Ireland which will take place from 10-17 March 2010 as one of the main events of Sechtain na Gaeilge. A 1500km course has been set out to do a non-stop relay run from Belfast to Galway over 7 days with tens of thousands taking part throughout 400 towns. A baton with a concealed message inside will be carried by Rith 2010 from start to finish. The baton will not be liad down until this message of support for the Irish Language will be ready out on St. Patrick’s Day in Galway. Rith 2010 is a brand new way for communities throughout Ireland to visibily celebrate the Irish Language and culture while also raising money for the development of Irish. Youghal G.A.A. Club will be taking part with Rith on the 13th March next. Find examples of events on
