Pleanáil Teanga - Language Planning

Sult na Sollán’s Irish language committee had an leading role in the development of a five year language plan to promote the Irish language in Co. Kildare. This is an ambitious and challenging undertaking but we are already seeing the benefits as we collaborate with other groups that share an interest in the Irish language in our own area and beyond. Read all about the 2019-2023 language plan here.
