Coláiste na nGael
Britain's Irish language network
to the website for people in Britain interested in learning Irish or in meeting
people who speak Irish.
Coláiste na nGael is part of a very lively
Irish language scene in Britain and Europe. Coláiste na nGael and its allies
run Irish language events, which include classes, all
over Britain. This year we are arranging one and two-day events in Essex, Leicestershire and Somerset.
We are pleased to be able to bring
you a list of Irish Language Classes which take place
in locations through out Britain.

2013 Bliain na Gaeilge
The Gaelic League was founded in 1893. This organisation had a crucial role in creating the Irish state, and promoting Ireland's rich culture. Every ten years, there is a nationwide celebration of our native language. 2013 is Bliain na Gaeilge.
Gaeilge 2016 - Ar aghaidh linn!
At Easter 2011, Colaiste na nGael launched 'Gaeilge 2016'. This is a five-year programme of events to support and encourage the greater use of Irish in Britain. At present, people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds are studying Irish. We invite all people to commit to learning Irish so that five years from now, they will have achieved a high proficiency in Irish. Irish is a beautiful language. Commit to Irish! Commit to 'Gaeilge 2016!'.
