About us and the Irish language in Britain

Coláiste na nGael and its allies run Irish language classes all over Britain.  We are a non-political and non-religious organisation. 

We are also a non-profit making organisation. Our newsletter is called Scéal.  It is full of information about Coláiste na nGael events taking place around Britain. 

Coláiste na nGael also organises events in Europe.  We have held residential language colleges in Berlin, the Netherlands, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man, Breizh (Brittany) and Benalmádena, Spain.

Coláiste na nGael enjoys the kind support of the Irish Embassy in London, and the British Association for Irish Studies. 

We have received as guests Éamonn Ó Cuiv, Minister for the Gaeltacht, Liam Ó Cuinneagáin of Oideas Gael, and Éamonn Ó Dónaill of Gaelchultúr. 

Our membership includes councillors, school principals, mayors and other influential people. We campaigned to have Irish admitted as a working language of the European Union.  Our members teach Irish in British schools and do the very best to raise the profile of Irish at every occasion.
