It’s hoped 2018 will be the year of the Irish language.
Bliain na Gaeilge is being launched today with the release on social media of a special version of Auld Lang Syne as Gaeilge for New Year’s Eve.
A range of events will take place next year to celebrate the language, with over 100 planned in the first half of 2018 alone.
According to peig.ie, the Irish language will be celebrated through action on five themes: the revival of the language over the last 125 years; the creativity of the language; the vibrancy of the language; the participation of the community; and the value of our Gaeltachtaí.
