Learning Irish Gaelic might be more important than you think. When you take upon yourself this honorable task of learning the Irish language, you’re also doing your (important) part in preserving the language and ensuring its future.

Want to learn the language and teach your children? That’s even better.

If you’re going to listen to this rebroadcast of the Bitesize Irish Gaelic 29th Episode, you’ll hear a very interesting discussion between Eoin (founder of Bitesize) and Liam Ó Cuinneagáin, founder of Oideas Gael about the past, present and future of the Gaeltacht and the Irish language. For those who don’t know, Oideas Gael was founded in 1984 and has attracted hundred of participants annually to its highly acclaimed language courses and cultural programmes (learn more about Oideas Gael).

In this re-run of the 29th episode of the Bitesize Irish Gaelic Podcast (in the English language), Eoin and Liam talk about Irish speaking communities within Gaeltacht, why it’s so important that you’re a part of the movement to speak Ireland’s native language, at what point should you travel to Oideas Gael in Ireland to learn Irish Gaelic & more.
