  • Déanfar tábhacht athbheochan na Gaeilge agus tionchar na hathbheochana sa phobal agus ar imeachtaí stairiúla le 125 bliain anuas a cheiliúradh agus a chraobhscaoileadh.

  • Tá féilire d’imeachtaí ildánacha, ealaíonta agus pobail ar fud an domhain beartaithe do 2018. Cuirfear le líon na n-imeachtaí i rith na bliana, agus tá cúpla eochairthionscadal a leanfaidh ar aghaidh i ndiaidh 2018.

  • Aithneofar luach ár nGaeltachtaí i saol na tíre, spreagfar próifíl agus mórtas a bpobail, agus tabharfar faoi na dúshláin atá rompu sa lá atá inniu ann, len iad a chosaint agus a neartú.

  • The beginning of the revival

    It was on 31 July 1893, in Dublin, that Dubhghlas de hÍde, Eoin Mac Néill agus their colleagues founded The Gaelic League. The aim the new organisation gave itself was to strengthen the Irish language through speaking it and using it.

    There are now more than 200 branches and a vast number of members involved with the Gaelic League all over the world, members that work hard to encourage the use of Irish in their local area. The Gaelic League are now involved with language rights advocacy, awareness campaigns; Seachtain na Gaeilge, as well as other campaigns since then.

  • Oireachtas na Gaeilge organised for the first time

    The first ever Oireachtas festival came together on Monday, 17 May 1897 in Dublin. It was held in the round rooms of the Rotunda. The motion was passed that ‘That an Oireachtas, or public assembly, on behalf of the Irish language, be held annually by the Gaelic League, at which prizes would be offered for readings, recitations, songs and dramatic sketches in Irish.’.

There are now job opportunities available now for Irish speakers.

  • Bliain na Gaeilge in 2018
