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!'.
