New Irish Language Development Officer

Bridie Ní Shúilleabháin has taken up the post with Gaelphobal Ard Mhacha Theas as Irish Language Officer in the Ring of Gullion area.

The group has been awarded funding of £123,000 over three years to develop and revitalise the language, and part of it is being used to fund her appointment.

The remainder will be used to run events, classes, workshops, festivals and music and was secured through the Irish Network Development Scheme 2022-24 by Foras na Gaeilge.

“We have many plans for the development of Irish in the area,” she said. “We are really looking forward to working with and supporting all our local schools and the other language, music, sports and heritage groups in the wider area. There also be a new website, with information about Irish language events.”

“Our area is renowned nationwide for our language, heritage, history, music and folklore. We have a lively and vibrant Irish language community and we are looking forward to adding to the wonderful movement in the area in the coming years.”
