I'VE JUST READ ABOUT A NEW VILLAGE TO BE BUILT NEAR BAILE GIB WHICH WILL BE IRISH SPEAKING.THERE ARE ALSO PLANS FOR A GAELTACHT IN TIR EOGHAIN(it was in the May 2000 edition of An tUltach).In Glanmire County Cork there are a group of houses(5 or 6) together all irish speaking.This place is called Ard Barra.The musician Tomas O Canainn lives there.The Belfast Gaeltacht should be an inspiration to us all with 17 families there now.There are 29 families in Rath Carn, the majority speak Irish.So since 26 county independence one Gaeltacht has been set up in the North, one in the South and one micreaGaeltacht in the South.If these new Gaeltachts come into being maybe the British and the Irish governments will take notice of the language.Irish was spoken in east Galway until the 1950's, on Rathlin Island County Antrim until the 1940''s-50's,in County Louth until the mid 1920's there was a breacGaeltacht there, in parts of Tyrone until the 1950's.
Is mise,
