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.
