Steps are currently being undertaken to begin the development and implementation of an Irish Language Plan in the areas surrounding Galway city. This work is central to the language planning process that is taking place currently in the Gaeltacht, and aims to revitalise, support and strengthen the Irish language in those areas.

The Irish Language Plan aims to set out a range of initiatives and measures that will promote, support and increase the use of Irish in everyday life in the home, the community, in education and in social, business and public structures in the Language Planning Areas of Bearna & Cnoc na Cathrach, Oirthear Chathair na Gaillimhe agus An tÉachréidh. We invite you to get involved in this initiative.

This process stems from the 20 Year Strategy for the Irish language 2010 – 2030 and the Gaeltacht Act, 2012. The meetings are being organised by Údarás na Gaeltachta in conjunction with The Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs.
