Gaeilge365 - Aonad Nuálaíochta na Gaeilge

A project of Dublin City Council, Gaeilge365 is harnessing the power of creativity to set a new gold standard in Irish language promotion. We want to show other government bodies and the public that 

Key projects:

  • Binse Comhrá - we will brand benches in public spaces so they connect Irish speakers and spark conversations as Gaeilge.
  • Gael-leabharlannaí - we will connect Irish speaking librarians with the Irish speaking community in their local area by rolling out a creative engagement which makes libraries a hub for Irish speaking communities.
For all projects we will be measuring the number of opportunities to converse which they create e.g. if a Bínse Comhrá sparks 5 conversations as Gaeilge per day, over a 60 day window we will know they it has brought Irish into daily use for 300 people.

Key resources/equipment required:

  • Irish Language Innovator In Residence
  • Graphic Designers & Artists for Bínse Comhrá
  • Gael-leabharlannaí will have digital screens, printing costs, resource development and community outreach streams.
