Our Vision

Our vision for Gaillimh le Gaeilge is intertwined with our vision for Irish in Galway city, and we envisage them both to be interdependent on each other – neither being accessible or achievable without the other.

Our vision is as follows:

Gaillimh le Gaeilge shares an agreed interpretation of bilingualism with key stakeholders in Galway, and works with those stakeholders to chart the on-going development of Galway City as a bilingual city.

This bilingual status instills in its citizens a sense of identity and pride, enhances the image of Galway, and the self esteem of its people. Measurable material and social benefits also derive from this status.
