Irish Language Plan for Galway City

Work has commenced on a new Irish Language Plan for the city under the direction of Dr John Walsh, Roinn na Gaeilge and Dr Dorothy Ní Uigín, Acadamh na hOllscolaíochta Gaeilge, National University of Ireland, Galway. The Language Plan will further promote, support and increase the communicative use of the Irish language as a norm in everyday life as well as deliver on Galway’s status as Ireland’s Bilingual City.

Bank of Ireland Enterprising Towns Award

Galway was recently named as the Best City in Ireland in the Bank of Ireland Enterprising Towns Award and we were proud to be involved in this initiative in association with the Local Business community. We had an opportunity to meet with the adjudication panel when they visited the City and in our presentation, we highlighted the economic value of the Irish language to Galway as well as its importance to our uniqueness as a cultural, bilingual city. Gaillimh Abú!












We’d really appreciate if all of our Cairde joined us by Thursday the 31st of January 2019. As you are aware, our Cairde scheme is now changed to a calendar basis. You can sign up online HERE via PayPal.

Please also remember to complete the GDPR section of the Cairde form so that we can keep in touch with you over the coming year.

The Galway business community are at the very heart of Gaillimh le Gaeilge’s work and without your support, we would not be able to provide our bilingual services to the people of Galway – míle buíochas libh go léir! So far this year, we have seen an increase of 31% in the demand for our translation services and we look forward to continuing with our work in 2019!
