House Language in the Cumann Luthchleas Gael Clubs

Glór na nGael works hand in hand with GAA clubs around the country to promote the Irish language.

The GAA itself is one of the biggest organizations that shaped Ireland as we know it today. Since its foundation in 1884, it has been at the heart of the country’s sporting and cultural life. It is therefore not surprising that clubs around the country would want to better serve Irish families and encourage the speaking of Irish at home among the families of the club.

Families who are part of the club’s communities can participate in the Home Language scheme by creating networks of families that come together socially on a regular basis through Irish.

A minimum of five families would be involved in each group. It is possible that parents are fluent in Irish or moderate Irish and want to improve their ability or they speak little Irish but want to achieve a higher standard. There is a place for them in this scheme.

The Irish language officer in the club sends a request to participate in the scheme to Glór na nGael on behalf of the families.
