We are proud that we were able to complete the projects that we planned at the start of the year, with some changes to their format due to the outbreak of COVID-19.
While we realize that there will be some challenges for us all in 2021, we hope that you will continue to support us as a Cara of Gaillimh le Gaeilge for 2021 as we continue to promote and strengthen the Irish language in Galway; the only city in Ireland with official bilingual status. You can sign up online at www.gleg.ie through PayPal or contact us on 091 568876 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will continue focusing on our objective; increasing the use of the Irish language to strengthen Galway’s reputation further as a bilingual cultural city and keep Galway to the forefront as the best place to live, visit and invest in. Galway’s bilingual work will be more important than ever as we move into a new era of opportunities in 2021.
Next year, we will see the first ever Irish Language Plan for the city launched in partnership with Galway City Council; a new online app / resource which will be a guide for Irish speakers in Galway City, services, resources, and events and we will develop a new three-year strategy that will guide our organisation’s work in the context of the broader Irish language plan to support Galway’s bilingual future.
