Digwyddiadau yr wythnos

Nos Lun yr wythnos hon, canais yn yr orsaf danddaearol Hammersmith gyda’r grŵp canu o’r Canolfan Iwerddon Hammersmith. Codon, a’r grŵp hŷn pwy canodd gynt yn y dydd, dri chant o bunnoedd ar gyfer Ysbyty Sant Bartholomew. Canon pum caneuon tairgwaith bob un – pedwar yn Saesneg, ac un, Silent Night, yn Saesneg, Gwyddeleg a Phwyleg. Yna, aethon i dafarn lleol am ddiod neu ddau. Aeth y pobol eraill i dŷ bwyta Thai am bryd o fwyd, ond es i adref achos o’n i ddim eisiau cyrraedd yn Brighton yn rhy hwyr.

Nos Fawrth es i’n ôl i’r Canolfan Iwerddon am y dosbarth canu diwethaf y tymor hwn. Cyfrifon yr arian a chanon ychydig o ganeuon. Er mod i’n mwynhau’r dosbarth yn fawr, dw i’n meddwl na fydda i’n mynd yn ôl y tymor nesaf achos dw i’n gwario gormod o arian ac yn treulio gormod o amser wrth fynd i Lundain bob wythnos. Dw i’n bwriadu ymuno â dau gôr lleol – côr cymunedol gyda enw Vox, a’r Côr Meibion Cymraeg Brighton.

Dydd Gwener roedd cinio Nadolig ar gyfer y staff a’r myfyrwyr am rhad ac am ddim yn ffreutur. Es i i’r swyddfa yn arbennig am y cinio.

Nuacht na seachtaine

Oíche Luan an seachtain seo, chan mé sa stáisiún faoi thalamh Hammersmith le grúpa amhránaíocht an Lárionad na hÉireann Hammersmith. Bhailigh muid, agus grúpa eile a bhí ag canadh níos moille, trí chéad punt ar son an Ospidéal Naomh Bartholomew. Chan muid cúig amhráin trí uair gach ceann – ceathair as Béarla, agus aon, Oíche Chiúin, as Béarla, Gaeilge agus Polainnis. I ndiaidh sin, d’ól muid cúpla deoch i dteach tábhairne áitiúla. Chuaigh na daoine eile chuig bialann Théalannach, ach d’fhill mé ar ais go Brighton, toisc níor mhaith liom ag dhul abhaile go rómhall.

Oíche Mháirt chuaigh mé ar ais chuig an Lárionad na hÉireann ar son an rang déanach na téarma seo. Chuntais muid an airgead agus chan muid cúpla amhráin. Cé go bhain mé an sult as an rang, tá mé ag smaoineamh ní bheidh mé ag dhul ar ais an téarma seo caite, toisc go bhfuil mé ag caitheamh barraíocht airgid agus am ag dhol go Londain achan seachtaine. Tá rún agam ag dhul i cúpla cóir áitiúla – cór pobail le hainm Vox, agus Cór Guth Fireann Breatnaise Brighton.

Dé hAoine bhí dinnéar na Nollag saor le fail ar son foireann agus mic léinn sa bialann san oifig. Chuaig mé go dtí an oifig go háirithe an dinnéar a fháil.

Weekly happenings

On Monday evening, I sang in Hammersmith tube station with the singing group from the Hammersmith Irish Centre. Along with the senior group, who sang earlier in the day, we collected £300 for Saint Barholomew’s Hosptial. We sang five songs three times each – four in English, and one, Silent Night, in English, Irish and Polish. We have a quick drink in a nearby pub afterwards then most of the group went for a meal at a Thai restaurant, but I returned to Brighton, not wanting to get back too late.

On Tuesday evening, I returned to the Irish Centre for the last class of this term. We counted the money and sang a few songs. Although I really enjoy the class, I don’t think I’ll be going back to it next term – I’m spending too much time and money going to London every week. I’m planning to join a couple of local choirs – a community choir called Vox, and Brighton Welsh Male Voice Choir.

On Friday, staff and students were provided with a free Christmas dinner in the canteen and I went into the office especially for that.
