#GRMAGaillimh

Cllr. John Walsh, deputising on behalf of the Mayor of the City of Galway , Cllr Frank Fahy launched the pilot scheme #GRMAGaillimh in the Treasure Chest Galway as part of Seachtain na Gaeilge celebrations. Two well-hashTag copyknown businesses in Galway; The Treasure Chest and Hollands, approached Gaillimh le Gaeilge with an idea to encourage staff to use simple Irish phrases in their dealings with customers. The #GRMAGaillimh scheme was developed by Gaillimh le Gaeilge with support from the Galway Chamber, Galway City Business Association and the Latin Quarter. It is designed to encourage those with very little Irish in the business community to use the language in their day to day business.
