Smaoineamh nua. Sa chéad teachtaireacht scríobhfaidh mé foclóir polaitíochta beag as Gaeilge. Déanfaidh mé "stickie" as.
Má tá ceist ag duine éigin faoi fhocal polaitiúil sa Ghaeilge, cuirfear é sa liosta sa chéad teachtaireacht agus fásfaidh sé de réir a chéile!
Beidh sé ina áis ag na daoine atá ag iarraidh cúrsaí polaitíochta a phlé as Gaeilge agus atá ag iarraidh a gcuid Gaeilge féin a fheabhsú. Ar aghaidh libh!

A new idea. In the first message I'll post a short Irish political dictionary. I'll make it into a stickie. If anyone has a question about an Irish political word, it'll get put in the list in the first post and it'll gradually expand according to your needs!
It can be a facility for those who wish to debate politics in irish and who want to improve their Irish vocab.
Off yez go!

Tá mé ag déanamh athnuachan ar an liosta seo. Rinne mé stickie dúnta de ag an mbarr. Má theastaíonn uait moltaí a dhéanamh, déan sa tsnáth seo iad agus cuirfidh mé isteach sa stickie dúnta iad nuair a fhaighim an deis.
GRMA :D

I'm currently renewing this list. I've made a locked stickie for the final list at the top. If you wish to make new recommendations, post them in this thread and I'll add them when I get the chance. Thanks.
:D
