Seachtain na Gaeilge 2019
Seachtain na Gaeilge (Irish Language Week) is an annual event which runs from 1st – 17th March.
The festival, the aim of which is to encourage communities to organise events and activities which celebrate the Irish language, is organised at local level throughout the island of Ireland, and Derry City and Strabane District Council leads on the co-ordination of the programme in this Council area.
A range of events are planned which not only promote the use and visibility of the Irish language in the area, but which also link with themes and campaigns of international and global significance such as World Book Day, International Women’s Day, and, of course the UNESCO International Year of Languages.
All events will be listed on our Council website at www.derrystrabane.com/gaeilge and across all of our media channels.
