Teanga Tí and GAA Clubs

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

The GAA itself is one of the most influentual organisations in shaping the Ireland we know it today. Founded 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 seek to better serve Irish speaking families and encourage the speaking of Irish at home among the club ‘s families.

Families that are part of the GAA community can participate in Teanga Tí by creating networks that come together socially on a regular basis.

A minimum of five families should be involved in each group. Parents may be fluent, or have a moderate command of the language, or those who wish to improve their ability, can all have a place in this scheme.

Should a GAA club be interested in Teanga Tí, the club’s The Irish Language Officer can apply to Glór na nGael to participate in the scheme on behalf of the families.
