Welcome to “Cill Dara le Gaeilge”, a scheme focused on promoting business through the Irish language in Co. Kildare. The objective of the scheme is to provide support and information to local businesses that wish to provide a service through Irish to their customers.
For hours of fun KBowl is the place to be with bowling, Wacky World -children’s play area, KZone and the KDiner. Check out our special offers, our video and join us on facebook to keep up with all the latest news.
Support through match-funding is now available from Foras na Gaeilge, for businesses that use the Irish Language on signage, website and printed marketing material.
This scheme supports small and medium-sized commercial enterprises to promote Irish in their business through signage, packaging, websites and printed marketing material. The scheme criteria and details are given within the downloadable application form below.
Cill Dara le Gaeilge took part in a video series about language planning organised by the national organisation Glór na nGael. Cill Dara le Gaeilge has elected to take part in the local language planning process, in conjunction with local groups Sult na Sollán and Glór na Ríogh. A five year language plan for Co. Kildare for the period 2018-2023 will be published during Seactain na Gaeilge, 2018.
The brilliant work underway by Gnó Mhaigh Eo promoting business through the Irish language in Co. Mayo is a great inspiration to Cill Dara le Gaeilge. In this short video, there is a taster of their work as well as a few sample businesses that are registered in their scheme. Ádh Mór leo - Good luck to them!
We’re delighted that representatives from Ghnó Mhaigh Eo will visit Co. Kildare on January 23rd to share their story and their experience with us at a public meeting. This open meeting will be held in Café Grange in Sallins between 6.30pm to 7.30pm. Tea/Coffee/Light bites will be available from 6pm. The meeting will be bilingual so don’t worry about having to speak Irish.
