Plean Teanga do Ghaillimh

The Irish Language Plan for Galway City (2020-2026) has been put before Foras na Gaeilge. The Ceanneagraíocht (Galway City Council and Gaillimh le Gaeilge) hope that the Goverment Chief Whip and Minister for State for the Irish language, Gaeltacht and the Islands will approve the plan before the end of the year. The objective of the Irish Language Plan, in line with Government policy, is to increase on an incremental basis the communicative use and knowledge of Irish in Galway City as a community language and deliver on Galway’s status as Ireland’s Bilingual City. Earlier this year Galway City Council and Gaillimh le Gaeilge have announced that Dr John Walsh, Roinn na Gaeilge and Dr Dorothy Ní Uigín, Acadamh na hOllscolaíochta Gaeilge, National University of Ireland Galway will lead a team of experts in language planning over the next few months to prepare a seven year Irish Language Plan for Galway City 2019-2026.

Coiste Stiúrtha Pleanála Teanga Gaillimh (CSPT Gaillimh)

A new steering group, Coiste Stiúrtha Pleanála Teanga Gaillimh (CSPT Gaillimh), was jointly established by Gaillimh le Gaeilge and Galway City Council  last year to support, guide and oversee the progress and the delivery of an Irish Language Plan for Galway City. Members of the Coiste represent a broad cross-section of the public, private, community and voluntary sectors in Galway City.
