Brennan’s Bread Marks Seachtain na Gaeilge With New Campaign

Brennan’s Bread has rolled out a new campaign called “Learning is Better to mark Seachtain na Gaeilge, which runs from March 1st to March 17th.

The playful campaign leverages cultural moments in time to teach people a “cúpla focail” that they can use in everyday life.

Created by Mindshare and it’s in-house Invention team, the campaign features a series of short videos featuring viral moments such as Teresa Manion’s “Don’t Take Unnecessary Journeys”, Roy Keane’s “That’s his job” and the famous “Small and Far Away” scene from Father Ted.

The videos have been recreated by popular Irish content creator Seamus Lehane in Irish along with a tutorial on how to say the specific catchphrase.

These creatives are being shared on Brennans Bread’s social media channels, encouraging followers to engage with the content and share their own experiences using the Irish language.
