Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media
Irish Language Support Schemes (Capital)
Community-based committees/organisations, that operate through Irish outside the Gaeltacht, may make an application under the department’s Irish Language Assistance Schemes. Funding can be provided to assist with the costs associated with building/repairing Irish language centres, purchasing buildings for use as Irish language centres, and/or purchasing equipment for such centres. The purpose of the capital assistance provided under this fund is the strengthening of Irish as a community and family language in accordance with the objectives of the Gaeltacht Act 2012 and the 20 Year Strategy for Irish 2010-2030. You can find more information on the scheme and download an application from here.
Glór na nGael
Céimeanna is a development program for new and smaller community groups who wish to develop skills, knowledge and experience in order to realise their ambition for the language within their own community. You can find more information by clicking here.
