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.
