An chéad scríbhneoir Éireannach ainmnithe don tionscadal Focail Eile: Réaltán Ní Leannáin

Tá lúcháir ar Fhoras na Gaeilge a fhógairt go bhfuil Réaltán Ní Leannáin roghnaithe acu le seal a chaitheamh san Fhreaslainn mar chuid den tionscadal Focail Eile i mí Aibreáin agus mí na Bealtaine 2016.  Beidh Réaltán lonnaithe in Leeuwarden, príomhchathair na Freaslainne san Ísiltír, agus díreoidh sí ar a saothar scríbhneoireachta, beidh sí ag coinneáil blag agus beidh sí páirteach in imeachtaí a bhaineann le mionteangacha, an Fhreaslainnis go háirithe, nuair a bheas sí ann.

 

Rugadh Réaltán Ní Leannáin i mBéal Feirste. Chaith sí a hóige agus a déaga ann le linn na seascaidí agus na seachtóidí. Tá cónaí uirthi faoi láthair i mBaile Átha Cliath.

 

Thosaigh Réaltán ag teagasc Gaeilge agus Spáinnise i scoileanna dara leibhéal sna hochtóidí. Tá tréimhsí caite aici ar fud na Spáinne agus tá taithí aici ar go leor de na teangacha éagsúla a labhraítear ann. Bhog sí as sin go dtí an t-oideachas tríú leibhéal, ag léachtóireacht san oideachas i gColáiste na Trionóide agus in Ollscoil Chathair Bhaile Átha Cliath. Chuaigh sí as sin go hOllscoil na Banríona, Béal Feirste.

 

Le linn di bheith ag léachtóireacht in Ollscoil na Banríona tháinig ailse uirthi. Sháraigh sí an deacracht seo, áfach, agus tá sí ag scríobh ó bhí 2007 ann. Tá cnuasach filíochta foilsithe aici, Turas Ailse (2011), bunaithe ar an eispéaras seo. Déanann sí blagáil [http://turasailse.blogspot.ie/] ar ailse agus ar ghnéithe eile dá saol agus déanann sí léirmheasanna ar leabhair nua-fhoilsithe [http://eithniu.blogspot.ie/]. Déanann sí tvuíteáil ar http://twitter.com/RealtanNiL

 

Sa bhliain 2015 d’fhoilsigh Cló Iar-Chonnacht a cnuasach gearrscéalta, Dílis [http://www.cic.ie/books/published-books/dilis], radharc neamhthrócaireach ó thaobh na mban de ar an saol. Bhí an-rachairt air, agus chothaigh sé conspóid lena pheirspeictíocht dhiongbháilte.

 

Is í Réaltán an chéad scríbhneoir Éireannach le bheith roghnaithe ag Foras na Gaeilge don tionscadal idirnáisiúnta scríbhneoireachta Focail Eile. Is clár comhpháirtíochta é Focail Eile idir eagraíochtaí cultúrtha ar fud na hEorpa agus é mar aidhm atá aige líonra de shocrúcháin chruthaitheacha a chur ar bun do scríbhneoirí Eorpacha i mionteangacha agus teangacha mionlaigh.
