A bit pessismistic, and I don't think the Gaeltacht needs a town, but there is a lot of information here

At first I was all like "yeah, sign me up!"...but the more I read...the more Orwellian it seemed...

That site has been around for long and it's a complete hoax. It has been discussed extensively some years ago.

Yes, Orwellian. It made me think of a bad made-for-tv movie. "The Stepford Gaeltacht".

I confess to have not looked at the plans for the new town. But it seemed to have a good collection of links to original, oft mis quoted statistics and sources. Which is why I linked to it.

Jonas: is there a critique of it online somewhere? How is it a hoax?
