As part of the build up the World Cup the Museum of Islamic Art have organised a Guinness World Record Attempt for the Most Languages in a reading relay of the book Le Petit Prince by Antoine De Saint-Exupery. The event is taking place on the 12th of October 2022.
This book has been translated into many languages around the world and on the evening each reader will read a section in their language.
More than 150 people will be involved in breaking the record and we are lucky to have two members of the SEK-Qatar community involved as a reader and judge of the Irish language. Bernadette Coyne will be reading in Irish and Lorraine Kenny will be judging in Irish.
We are so proud of both Bernadette and Lorraine, we wish them lots of luck in breaking the record! We have even learnt some Irish ourselves, Go n’eirí an t-adh leat!
The event will be recorded for Qatar TV and filmed at the Museum of Islamic Art.
