Review of Funding for Irish Language Centres
Foras na Gaeilge wishes to receive views from the public on how best to provide support for Irish Language centres throughout the country.
We wish to provide support for Irish Language centres throughout the country to provide the public with opportunities to use their Irish. Research informs us that if there is a “safe space” made available for people who speak a minority language that it greatly enhances the use of Irish in the community. Through this consultation document, Foras na Gaeilge is seeking views on a new scheme which will provide funding support for Irish Language centres throughout the country, to make usage opportunities available to the public.
This consultation document provides a background for people in terms of the methodology and implementation of the proposed scheme.
We would like to receive views from the public on the four different options which we discuss in this document. To help with this consultation process the document contains the Foras na Gaeilge proposals regarding the scheme. It also contains questions which we would like you to answer.
