Service: Gaeltacht Development
Established in 1980, Údarás na Gaeltachta is the regional authority responsible for the economic, social and cultural development of the Gaeltacht. The overall objective of Údarás na Gaeltachta is to ensure that Irish remains the main communal language of the Gaeltacht and is passed on to future generations.
The authority endeavors to achieve that objective by funding and fostering a wide range of enterprise development and job creation initiatives and by supporting strategic language, cultural and community based activities.
An amazing governing board of 12 members and a staff of 82 people implement the agency’s development brief. Údarás na Gaeltachta’s work in the Aran Islands over the past 30 years has been excellent, and we here at Inis Mór are forever grateful.
