Irish Language - Join the Conversation!

With 41% of the Irish population able to speak Irish yet only 1.8% of the population speaking Irish daily outside of education, here at the Irish Cultural Centre we are intrigued to learn why so few people use this fascinating language in their daily lives. We are uncovering facts about Irish and posing questions through our Facebook and Twitter pages to see how much is known about the Irish language. 

Join in the conversations on Facebook and Twitter using #irishlangfacts

Also use the hashtag to let us know about your experiences of Irish language, whether that be from your schools days spent reading Peig or any other anecdotes you might have. Let us know and get involved!

Here is a clip of Stephen Fry raising some interesting points -
