Language Development

The development process, by its very nature, is putting pressure on the language, as has occurred to minority languages worldwide and therefore it is necessary to concentrate, in an ongoing manner, on the language implications as a result of every part of each development process, regardless of how difficult it is to carry this out. At the end of the day it is the people in the Gaeltacht itself who will conserve the Irish language and it is extremely important that their central role is recognised in any strategic development’.

Developments, which occur in the Gaeltacht and in Irish speaking communities, create opportunities and responsibilities to ensure that the Gaeltacht lives on and that the Irish language is further developed. Leadership is necessary to ensure that developments in Clocháin Bhréanainn result in a positive impact on the Irish language and that every effort is undertaken to strengthen the language in the area.
