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.
Cill Dara le Gaeilge members are welcome to attend a meeting on 29th November to review the work of Cill Dara le Gaeilge during 2017. It will also be an opportunity to look ahead to 2018 and for us to present the objectives that we have set out for the year ahead.
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 hope to have a representative from Ghnó Mhaigh Eo visit Co. Kildare early in 2018 to share their story and their experience with us at a public meeting. Details will be posted here and mailed to our registered businesses.
