The Kodak Shop

Is aoibhinn leis an Kodak Shop i gCaisleán an Bharraigh an Ghaeilge, agus tá Angela i gcónaí ag déanamh iarracht níos mó Gaeilge a chur ar fáil sa siopa.  Faoi láthair, tá a lán comharthaíocht dhátheangach acu sa siopa, agus cuireann sí na cúpla focail ar fáil ar a stáiseanóireacht, ó na cártaí gnó go na dearbhán bronntanais. Is féidir leis an cuid is mó den fhoireann na cúpla focail a rá ón am a bhí siad ar scoil, agus deir Angela go bhfuil níos mó ná sin aici mar ba múinteoir í a mháthair agus ba chainteoir dúchais é a athair.  

Anuraidh, mar chuid de Seachtain na Gaeilge, rinne sí taispeántais fuinneoga de seanfhocail, mar shampla; "Níl aon tinteáin mar do thinteáin féin".  Chuir siad na nathanna seo isteach i bhfráma, agus bhí suim ag a lán daoine iontu.  Anois, de bharr an suim seo, bíonn sí ag díol na rudaí seo mar táirge.  

The Kodak Shop, which is located in Castle Street Carpark, is another strong advocate of the Irish language, and Angela is always trying to find new ways to incorporate more of it into her business.  At the moment, she displays a lot of bilingual signage within the shop, from department signs, to general welcome signs.  She also makes use of the cúpla foal on her stationery, including her business cards and gift vouchers.  She is also in the process of putting a new sign together for outside of her shop, which will also be home to the cúpla focal.  All the staff would have the cúpla focal from their school days, and Angela would like to say that she had a bit more as her mother was a teacher and her father a fluent speaker.  
Last year, as part of Seachtain na Gaeilge, she made a lovely display of framed seanfhocals, for example; “Níl aon tinteáin mar do thinteáin féin”.  The way that she had put framed and displayed these seanfhocals attracted a lot of attention and they were very popular among her customers.  So popular actually that she now sells them full time.
