Credim Ionat is a mentor-led campaign which will be presented by RTÉ’s Beo ar Éigean presenters, Áine Ní Bhreisleáin, Sinéad Ní Uallacháin and Siún Ní Dhuinn. Each of them will be mentoring one of three famous personalities, Michael Fry (comedian), Marty Morrissey (RTÉ presenter and commentator) and Marissa Carter (founder and chief executive of Carter Beauty), to achieve a personal language target. The public will follow their journey during the four weeks of the campaign, and Beo ar Éigean will be encouraging their mentees that they too can speak some Irish.
But you can take part too! If you would like to be an Irish speaker, this is your chance! Find an Irish speaker on social media in your life who will encourage and support you as a mentor. Explain what you want to achieve and agree on a goal to reach by the end of the campaign on 11 November 2022.
If you can speak Irish, you can offer your support to someone else or to a group who are interested in reaching an Irish language goal. This does not need to involve learning or teaching Irish – agree a target to reach by the end of the campaign. Download the Creidim Ionat buttons to show you will take part!
