Declan Varley Quote

“In a world where every destination tries to highlight its uniqueness, the bilingual status of Galway is one that sets us apart. The investment by businesses, charities, and community groups into using the Irish language in its names, its livery, and its marketing can be attributed totally to the work of Gaillimh le Gaeilge.”

Declan Varley, Group Editor, Galway Advertiser.


Gaillimh le Gaeilge works in association with Galway City Council,
Galway Chamber and other groups to develop and strengthen Galway’s official Bilingual Status.
